I just found out through Page Turners Blog, that there's this thing called "Fall Into Reading 2010" where people make lists of books they want to read between September 22, 2010 and December 20, 2010. And then do it.
This event is hosted by Callapidder Days and you can check out more info about it here.
I've never participated in any kind of Read-A-Thon, so I just decided "Hey, why not?" Chances are I won't be able to get through any of them because of school (currently in my thesis year in Psychology = hard core thesis paper to write). However, I want to.
My goal for Fall Into Reading 2010 is just to remember to take time for myself and read a book that I want to read, rather than textbooks all the time. So far I've been achieving this by reading for 15-20 mins every night before bed. Unfortunately for my sleep patterns, 15 mins soon turns into 30 mins, then 45 mins, then it's 1 o'clock which is later than I like to stay up during the week. So basically, it's going well.
I don't want to be too ambitious and make my list impossible to finish, but at the same time I think that'll be impossible in itself because there's lots of sequels coming out that I need to read ASAP.
These are the books that I want to get read before the end of Fall Into Reading 2010.
