So I decided to start this blog...

I'm not quite sure what inspired me to plunge headfirst into this thing. Well, actually, I do. Books. I've been getting into them more and more recently. I guess it's an addiction? Probably what my parents would say, but I guess I'll let you be the judge. That is, if anyone is reading...

The funny thing is, yesterday I didn't even be thinking that I'd start a blog today. It also didn't occur to me the day before, or even the day before that. It actually just came to me about an hour ago. I was writing a letter to a friend, (don't even get me started on that topic in m my first post as a blogger!) and was searching for a picture to include. I came across this blog where someone reviewed books. And then I saw something that sparked my interest: challenges. I had never in the slightest heard of this. I clicked on some of the side bar links and started reading about these "challenges."

It's actually quite interesting. It's something you sign up for, and then personally stay with as you go through and read books that meet specific requirements. Example: A to Z challenge where you must read 26 book titles, a through z; 26 authors' books, a through z; or both.

And then I came across one that I really thought I wanted to try. The Debut Author Challenge. Read a novel by a debut author that is released in 2010, and blog about it. And then, you can post that blog and enter a contest to win Advanced Reader's Copies of some awesome books.
The thing is, I don't think I'm up to that point in my blogging abilities. I mean, I haven't had this thing more than the time it takes to make mac and cheese. I'm working my up. And I guess I'll just be reviewing the books I've been reading in the past, present, and, well, not future. If you know how to do that one, let me know.

Also, I don't have many books to read that were released this year. I know, I know. The Library! Yeah, for a reader, I don't get there much. Boo.
Well, I think that's all for now.
