Good Monday morning everyone. I know it is technically fall, although it sure doesn’t feel like it, we had SNOW this weekend. SNOW. Oh how I hate winter. Anyways there is only two good things that I can think of when it comes to the frigid hell that envelopes Iowa for far too many months of the year (yes I know many have it much worse) and that is it kills off all the bugs and my reading time increases due to the hibernation I enter as I attempt to stay warm under an electric blanket. So this morning I was thinking about my plans for this winter season of reading and thought it might make a good question this week. So what are you goals, plans or books you are looking forward to reading this winter.
Myself I am going to attempt to read A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin and if I can get through that one I might read the entire series. If that one doesn’t work for me I am thinking of taking a month-long challenge of reading a book/story a day. Of course these are not going to be long novels, more like 80-150 page novellas. It would also be a great chance to clean off some of the free titles on my Nook and Kindle. I might also dedicate a month to reading only library books, there are many titles we have gotten in at work that I have yet to check out. I have also toyed with a month of YA reading, again to catch up with titles we have gotten in at work so I can make recommendation to patrons.
So there you have some of the ideas I have been coming up with for my winter reading and blogging. What about you? What are your reading plans for winter 2014/2015?
