100 Books-a-Month Challenge
On Friday we finally got over to the library to check out some new books. October has been busy for us! Anyway, in talking with one of the children's librarians as we checked out our large stack of books, I mentioned how cool it would be to read all the books in the library (children's section, that is). She thought it would be a great thing to at least strive for. So as we made out way back to the car and headed back home, I decided that we would!
I'll have to take my camera with me when we return our books so I can take a few shots of the children's department---it is rather extensive. Anyway, since I have little ones..and not so little ones, we will be focusing on the picture book/story book section first. I'm thinking if we read 100 books each month we could be finished with that section by the end of Spring. We'll see!
So, for those of you that follow me (openly or privately), I'd like to invite you to join me in our Reading Challenge: The 100 Books-a-Month Challenge, that is! You can join in when you'd like and post a comment below along with your blog addy letting me know that you're joining in. I'll add you to the list so others can see just what you are reading, too! Then copy the photo above and post it on your page linking back to my blog. You can keep a running list of all the books you're reading or do a monthly list. (Right now I'm doing a monthly one.)
We are committing to this challenge until the end of May 2010. It would be a pleasure to have you along for this reading adventure!!
P.S. You can make adjustments to this as needed for your children (ie if your older one is reading long/thick chapter books, count each chapter; for the younger child that likes to hear the same story over and over--count that book each time it's read). This challenge is for the pure FUN and ENJOYMENT of reading!!
I've chosen to only use 'new to us' books since I want my children to get more variety in their reading and for us to get to regularly using our library again! Hopefully by May, we've have read a good portion of our library's books! ;-)
