It's a sign!

I am still calling myself an idiot for challenging myself on Goodreads to reading 50 books this year. That was yesterday. Today, I find this community advertised on LJ's homepage! Woot!

Last year, I read 47 books. That was the year I got my eReader and I was devouring up all these books that I couldn't find anywhere else. BUT, at least 10 of those books were short stories, which I am not really all that fond of. They always left me wanting more more more of the story.

I love reading, but am not all that obsessive with it. I read before bed, during my work break, and for about 30 minutes after I shower. And I have a writers' group and have stuff to read and critique.

My first book of the year is Darkside by Belinda Bauer. It is amazing, but very detailed, so it is slow going.

I have 2 more library books to read, then I can do the 2nd and 3rd Hunger Games books (YAY) which will go fast.
