There's a first time for everything!

A friend at work opened the world of book blogging to me, and I've been spending more and more time browsing others' reviews and opinions. One of my new year's resolutions was to start keeping track of the books I read, as I have a difficult time remembering what I've read over the years. After I bought a shiny new notebook and started writing my thoughts on each completed novel, I realized that we are in the 21st century, and there are far more interesting and advanced ways to keep a journal!

The challenges seem like a great way to expand my horizons and read books I wouldn't normally just pick up on my own. In addition, they will give me even more of an excuse to buy new books (not that I really need an excuse)!

I've really missed discussions over literature since I've been out of college, so I'm looking forward to sharing opinions and thoughts with other bookworms out there!

Aw, congrats on starting your blog! I just started mine in January, so we're kind of newbies together. So far your site is looking good. I'll be checking back for more book news from you. :-)

How cool - we're doing the same kind of thing! I decided to keep a reading blog starting the day I turned 30. It was supposed to last for one year, but I'm having so much fun with it that I'll probably continue. I'm linking to your site from mine - hope you don't mind!
