The library is closed on Sundays now?? When did that start?? I remember when the library was always open on Sundays during the school year! I guess now with internet and all that stuff, they dont feel the need to provide books to the public;)
Anyways, I've picked two books so far! One is Julie & Julia by Julie Powell. Usually, I'm a book-before-movie sort of girl - but until I saw the movie I didnt even know there was a book (just an example of how removed I am from the book world, I am ashamed!! Ashamed!!) Since I loved the movie so much, I knew I had to read the book! I got it from the library 2 1/2 weeks ago and it has to go back this week, so not only do I have to read it fast for my own challenge, but theres a due date and fine on the line too:) Plus, it's a good way to start my resolution by reading about someone else's crazy challenge. Of course, hers was much more challenging (365 days to cook 524 recipies - YIKES) - but its inspiration nonetheless.
The other book is Anne of Avonlea. Now, I have read this book before, but its been probably over 10 years. The reason I picked this one is that it is on my iphone and portable, so I can read it when I am not at home or don't have access to my other books. Ok....I am not one for "electronic" books and I'll save that rant for another day - someone is going to have to seriously talk me into the goodness of the Kindle, (I've had a few try already!!) but I think it's an abomination to books everywhere! However, the hypocrite that I am, I do have the app on my IPhone, only because it was free and I know it will never take the place of sitting down and opening a physical, beautiful book:) Plus I only ever download the free books on it, and Anne of Avonlea was one of them.
That's my first 2 of 10: Julie & Julia, and Anne of Avonlea
I do want to point out that if I do want to read any HP or Twilight this year, I can...but they will not count towards my 10 a month - so if I want to read them I have to work extra hard;) If I want to re-read a book I've read before, I can only do that once a month and I cant have read it recently. If the whole point is to branch out and read new things, I cant keep reading books that I have already experienced! So, while Anne of Avonlea is on my Jan list, I can re-read any other books this month, the other 9 have to be new new new!
I am going to the library tomorrow and will pick out my other 8 books - I am really really excited!! What am I going to read??! :)
Oh and by the way....GO RAVENS!!!
