USA history holds so very little interest for me as a whole. I would rather read the individual biographies of certain historical individals, especially the often overlooked factions such as women and people of color.
Answer my riddle to earn a prize!

You'll always feel it, but can never see it. It's strong but shatters easily. You can give it away but never hold it. What is it?

Pm me the answer, no cheating please!

i want to read the Hamilton bio because of the musical. i want to read the Burr bio to read the "other side of the story."

but other than that? i'll take my scifi, fantasy, mystery, supernatural, ghost story romances any day!

I've been forgetting about this because life is stressful, but my review copy of Shaun Tan's new book finally arrived and it's big! A lovely hardcover that I can't believe I'm getting for free. Publisher just wants two copies of my review so I will certainly do that.

Magazines will sometimes take book reviews. Maybe I can work out a side income of sorts if I can find paying markets, even if it's a pittance.

I seem to be reading a lot of kids books of late (a couple are pending gifts ;)). Maybe it's a sign. The only elective for next term that I have to take is children's services in libraries.

My attempt to knock off the "own but haven't read" pile didn't work so well. It seems. I think 2019's Reading Challenge will be ONLY books that I already own. Especially as the list is increasing as I make my library.

Heh. I was at a write-in last night. Problem with those though, is that people tend to just write, which I can do at home. I kinda want to chat about projects and such but that's not helpful as far as word counts go. I've yet to hit 1000, but I am getting some things done. I never have written long stories.

I really like self-challenges like this. I definitely haven't succeeded this year in reading more than last year. It is a habit that I want to try and get back into because reading is something that I really enjoy. I just tend to prioritise screen time over book time. I think I'm a little late for this year, so my efforts will be for 2019 to try and improve upon this year's pitiful attempt

welcome, Claptrap! i'll most definitely post this again for next year, and you're more than welcome to join us!

i don't think i'll be making my goal for this year, though (it was 47 or more). i've read 35 books so far, and have another one started. i hope to finish at least that one, and then tackle everything i've let pile up on my list of books that came out during the second half of this year. (there's one book that i put in a purchase request to my library. they say when the book comes in, i'll get an email that it's ready for pickup. it was published at the beginning of august, and i did follow up, but it was too soon (like 10 days instead of two weeks, something silly like that) but i knew i had other books i was reading, and NaNo was coming.

so here we are and i have *looks at list* five books to see if they're at the library or not. probably once i'm done with my NaNo ;)

Last year I read 70 books, this year I am at 54 so far. So I guess I'm not going to beat it or meet it.

How is everyone, I'm going to try and come back. I've missed it.
