Children's Book Reading Challenge...For Adults!

Friday, October 12, 2007


I have an excuse for being M.I.A. this week - I'm wading through Susanna Clarke's Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell. It was a little slow for me at first, but now I'm loving it. The book is enormous, so I'll post a review when I finish it (around March, at this rate). I rarely read two
books at a time, but currently I'm also reading Woman in Black, a ghost story by Susan Hill. It was due at the library a week ago; I'm hoping I can renew it, since I'm enjoying it, too.
Last night, I set up a new blog - really a companion to this one. I shamelessly stole this idea from Chris: Since my sidebars were drooping under the weight of all my challenge lists, I decided to put them and all other challenge-related info on my new blog, Up For A Challenge. I haven't decided exactly how I will use it, but for now it contains all of my challenge lists with links to reviews on this site. I'll keep working on both of these, since blogging about books is just so much fun for me!
Last but certainly not least, I'm going to be even more M.I.A. this week as I am off to Lake Powell, for our family's bi-annual houseboat trip. I'm hoping to get some reading done, but I may be too busy jetskiing, hiking, boating, etc. Catch you later!


  1. Have a great trip!

  2. Have a fun trip! I love your new site, I have a problem, I always sign up for challenges and then never get around to them because I'm reading other things! I have a challenge problem I guess. I wanted to let you know that I'm having a book swap if you get back in time. Check it out if you are intersted, it should be lots of fun!

  3. Wow. That sounds like a fun trip! Have a good time. I wandered over here from the RIP Challenge site. You have a very nice blog!


Comments make me feel special, so go crazy! Just keep it clean and civil. Feel free to speak your mind (I always do), but be aware that I will delete any offensive comments.

P.S.: Don't panic if your comment doesn't show up right away. I have to approve each one before it posts to prevent spam. It's annoying, but it works!
