50 Book Challenge 2012

I can see that this might be a light year for me after a month of reading.  Mostly because I am focusing a lot of my time and energy onto eating right and getting to the gym.  Which is exactly where I need to be.  But I still want to track my books, keep my list and strive for 50.  It is a good outlet for me and maybe someday I'll be able to read and walk on the treadmill at the same time.  Until then it might be slow going!

Are you on GoodReads? I'm challenging myself to read 50 books this year as well and I've been keeping track over there. If you are on GoodReads, let me know and I'll friend you!

For your challenge, would you count books on CD? You could listen to them while you work out unless music helps you more while you work out.

I was just going to comment to see if you were on GoodReads too and I see Melinda beat me to it! Totally love Goodreads! I'm doing a 104 book challenge this year, but I'm already two books behind, so that doesn't bode well.

I have found that making time for reading is definitely a lot easier when you set goals like this. Good luck to you!!

I am not on GoodReads. I maybe should be but right now it is one more thing.

I would count books on CD, but I've never really enjoyed them in the same way. For now TV works for me!
