The Outdo Yourself Reading Challenge 2011 is hosted by The Book Vixen. The basis of this one is to read more books in 2011 than in 2010. This is the one that I'll have to push myself on, because my reading has actually SLOWED down since last year, and I'm doubtful that I'll even be able to read the same amount as last year. lol. But I'm going to try.
According to the books that I kept track of (who knows, I might have forgot to list a book here or there) I read 54 novels (this isn't including any anthologies, because I can take up to a year or longer to read every story from an anthology - hey. they are full of short stories. I'm assuming it's okay to read a short story when ever I feel like it, not read the whole anthology right through)
I am going to go easy on myself, though, and sign up for the absolutely easiest level. This would be the - Getting My Heart Rate Up Level: 1 - 5 more books this year than last. The challenge goes from January 1, 2011 to December 31, 2011. haha - so far, I've read 7 books. seven.
Hosted by Miz B at ShouldBeReading, this is one of the fun MeMes I like to participate in. I get to tease with sentences from books I'm reading. Of course, full guidelines are at Miz B's site, but main thing is NO spoilers and credit the author and book.
This week's reading (the books within reach anyway) are...
'....Crazy Homeless Dude lowered his head to Xan's face and...what the hell was he doing? Donna watched with repulsion as the man's teeth suddenly seemed sharper, like there were too many of them to fit properly in this mouth.'
from page 7
'...Everyone feared him. Everyone. Even Him, even the one who searched. She smelled of horse, sweat, and something sweet. No Fear.
He snarled, and she wrapped one hand over his muzzle. Sheer astonishment stopped his growls. Just how stupid was she? '
Me, pretty much every morning....lol
