    There was so much interest in my Reading Challenge that I put it in its own thread. I'm a librarian and have accepted the challenge to read 75 books! this year. Please join me. You can even listen to them on audio---yes, it's reading too! After all some people find the written word a challenge, and others learn differently! If you need title suggestions we are here to help; just ask! Let's see if we can make literacy and a love of books come alive this new year!

    Great idea and good luck with your challenge! Just make sure not to exhaust your eyes! Have lots of vitamin A, carrots are a great source! I would love to start reading soon as well!

    Join me. You could even do half---like a half marathon if 75 seems like too many! I'm a librarian so can help with suggestions. I got stuck on a couple and other BYC members helped me out. Together we can do anything!

    I'll join you @Rosto ! I've always been a reader but I tend to read a lot of the same books (I have a lot of favorites). This will push me to try some new authors.

    I'll post here on how it's going.

    Thanks!

    I made it to the library today! I read 1 short book while I was there and brought home 3 others for the challenge.

    The short book I read was "You're Only Old Once" by Dr. Seuss. I read a lot of his stories to my boys while they were growing up but I hadn't seen this one before. It was fun and the artwork was wild as only one of his books can be.

    It wasn't really a children's book (which would have covered #38) so I'm using it as book #19 (a book you can finish in a day).

    Anyone else marked some books off their challenge list?
