Here is my post about the first mini challenge during the July Book Blowout Challenge:
1. Describe yourself in one sentence.
I am an avid reader who loves working on her blog and networking with other reading blogs.
2. What book will you start the challenge with?
I started with Regina’s Closet by Diana M. Raab.
I’m already 50 pages in. As this book is relatively short (166 pages), I’m hoping to complete it tomorrow.
3. Where is your favourite place to read?
I love to read curled up on my couch or in the rocking chair in my huge master bathroom, but I’ll read anywhere it’s convenient and comfortable. I’ve been known to sit in a stairwell without air conditioning and read during my work breaks so that I won’t get disturbed.
4. What is your favourite book of all time?
My favorite book of all time is Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell. It just makes me happy. I often pick it up an just read a chapter here or there and it calms me down.
5. Remind us all of your challenge target.
My target is to read 7 books this month. A couple of the books I have lined up are 200 pages or under, but I have some really intense books scheduled as well. 7 will be a challenge for me any month, but I’m making sure that the material is as well.
