2010 Reading From My Shelves Challenge

Okay, so this is my last challenge. As a newbie, I don't want to overwhelm myself. I think 3 challenges is a good number for a beginner.
The 2010 Reading From My Shelves Challenge is hosted by Bibliophile By The Sea. For more information click here. This challenge is actually just what I need. I really need to make an honest effort to free up some space on my bookshelves in a bad way!! I'm thinking this might help with my serious book addiction as well (I'm always buying way more books than I can possible read).
For this challenge I'm going to set of goal of 20 books (the minimum). ;) Can't expect to get over an addiction that quick. If I got over 20, I figure that would be the cherry on top of the sundae. :)
Happy Reading!!!

2010 Support Your Library Challenge

Here is another good challenge for me, especially since I try to bring my little one to the library at least once every other week or so.

The 2010 Support Your Library Challenge hosted by J. Kaye's seems easy enough. For details click here.

Since this my first year joining in on challenges, I plan to start at "The Mini" level.

A First for Everything

Reading Challenges. I've been reading tons of book blogs and seeing so many join up for these reading challenges that I thought I'd jump in on the fun. This not only gives me a nice challenge for 2010, but hopefully it'll help me take time for myself and do what I love to do - READ!!! :)

The first challenge that I'm signing up for is the 30 Books to Movie Challenge hosted by Bibliophile's Lounge. I plan to join up for more.

Here are the rules for the challenge:

Timeline: 01 Jan 2010 - 31 Dec 2010

Goal: To read 30 books that have been adapted into movies, and watch said movies


• You don't have to select your books ahead of time. You may select books as you go. Even if you list them now, you can change the list if needed. Crossovers from other reading challenges count.

• If you decide to join this challenge be sure to create a post telling others. Also, please make sure you add a link back to this post so others can join in. You can join at any time!

• Non-bloggers may enter as well. If you have a blog, please post the review of BOTH the book and movie on your blog, detailing:

a) Your honest opinions of the book and movie

b) Which one did you enjoy more (book or movie?)

c) What do you think is so good about the book for it to have been made into a movie

Make sure you label the reviews with “30 Books To Movies” so it’ll be easier for me to link them.

• Series only count as one entry. For example, even though there are 7 Harry Potter books, altogether they only count as 1 of the 30 books because they belong to the same series.

Feel free to join up!

Happy Reading
