The Reading Challenge

My Return to the blog after a much long absence marks a definite change in my life. Things are okay for me and my family, but they have been better.

Last May I decided to do a reading challenge on Facebook. My goal was to read 100 books by the end of September. I fell short my goal by 70 books. It was a highly ambitious number to attain in 5 months anyways. but this is the turn out that I did get:

My new Goal is for me to start my count again October first. I will then read as many books as I can in one year. Now here's the fun part.I'm going to post this many different places and redirect them here for comments. The person to guess the right amount of books gets a prize. you can choose any number but if the number you wanted to say is taken, choose another one.

Example: Gary Stu said 60 but Mary Sue wanted to say that one. She now can either say 59 or 61. But not 60 because it was already called.

The person to guess the right amount of books gets a special prize. You get to choose one book from a list I provide and you get it for free. I'll handle Postage and everything.

What do you think Guys and Gals? Think we can do this?
