I was mostly absent from social media outlets during January and February and I have to admit I found it to be a refreshing change of pace. I think social media is a very important tool for staying connected, but sometimes it’s okay to take a “vacation”, just like in real life. So, now I’m back and ready to hit the ground running.
What are your reading goals this year?
I have set two major reading goals for myself this year. First, on the recommendation of my good friend Chris, I’m reading through Daniel Silva’s Gabriel Allon series. My goal is to read the entire series this year! For those of you keeping count, that’s 12 books in all, including the newest thriller due out this Summer. I finished the first two in January, The Kill Artist and The English Assassin, and will post my reviews of those soon (hint: I’m totally hooked).
My second reading challenge this year was issued by a reading group friend. The challenge is to read through the alphabet this year. That’s 26 books in 12 months, each book title starting with a different letter of the alphabet. All reading categories count for this one. They don’t have to be in order, unless you just want to read them that way. If a book title starts with “The”, you use the first letter of the next word. So, The Kill Artist counts as a “K” and The English Assassin counts as an “E” in this challenge.
I’ll set up a reading challenge page this week to keep track of my progress this year. Who wants to join in?
