A to Z Challenge 2012





Strawberry Splash Reviews

I joined the A to Z challenge hosted by Strawberry Splash Reviews.  I tried an A to Z challenge a couple of years ago and failed miserably.  But I'm going to try it again.  Part of this challenge is to review each book and I am new to reviews.  So my main goal is to read the books and my secondary goal is to review them. 
I have a few hundred books loaded on my kindle and always have trouble figuring out what to read next.  I plan to just pick a letter and see what books are available for that and go from there.  Wish me luck!!!

2011 E-Book Challenge Recap

I realized I never posted the recap for my 2011 ebook challenge.  Here is the post where I listed my books.  My goal was to read somewhere between 20 and 50 books.  I met my challenge with 48 books.  I was just shy of the 50.  I think that was pretty good since I didn't even own my Kindle for the entire year. 

I really enjoy reading on my Kindle.  I have found so many free books that I have only purchased a couple of books that were not free.  I even checked out a couple of books from the library.  It was great to not have to drive there.  The books are delivered in seconds.

Stay tuned for the 2012 Challenge...
