100 in 2012

So we already talked about my other challenge for 2012,2012 in 2012, to rid my home and life of 2012 items that no longer receive the love they once did.

I have a second challenge for myself this year. I am challenging myself to read 100 books in 2012.

Sound like a lot right. Well it is an average of 8 books a month, or  a week. Is it doable. I dunno, but I will sure try. I love to read at night in bed, as well as in the bath, and I am turning to reading in my free time while my son naps rather then sitting online, have no fear I use that time for other important stuff like putting away everything he pulled out of the cupboards before his nap as well :)

Each month I will post up my reading plan as well as an update at the end of the month to track my progress.
