My name is Kirsty and I am a book addict….
I originally thought that as I had far too many unread books on my kindle that 2015 would be theyear of the e-reader. However I have just been through my book cases and added up the unread books. As of this moment we have
Kindle: 941 books
Non Fiction 28
History based books 12
Writing fiction and poetry books 5
The kindle number may go down slightly as there are about 5 cook books on which I probably downloaded for being free and seeing as I’ve just deleted 3 different Draculas its quite possible I’ve downloaded a few books more than once.
So how to I set a challenge. I somehow have to try not to buy too many paper books so that number doesn’t go up (people that know me will be laughing hysterically now!) and I will try not to add any more kindle books unless someone asks me to review a copy of their book which usually goes to the kindle.
Ah just remembered there are 2 more books stored in my emails! Not to mention anything we do for book club.
Lasy year I set a good reads challenge of 52 books and have managed about 70 so I’m gonna go big this year. I will have the 12 book club books (one per month) and then maybe 50 kindle and 40 paper books. I’m a fast reader and some of the books I have are novellas which don’t take too long. I doubt I’ll be able to review everything I read but want to try and do as many as possible especially for new/self published/smaller authors.
Oh and somewhere in all that I need to finish my own, continue studying and go to work. Wish me luck 🙂
