OTHER BLOG NEWS:
I signed up for the Book Blogger Organization Challenge, hosted by the Book Addict's Guide.
This is a 6-month challenge in which you do various things to get your blog and blogging life all organized -- around the New Year, who can resist that? So once a month, I'll be posting my plans and progress.
January is devoted to Challenges and Resolutions. I already posted my 2015 blogging resolutions (spend time wisely on social media, do more discussion posts, and meet and connect with more bloggers.)
As for challenges, I've learned that I don't really need the kind in which you try to rack up or count up books you've read. I did challenges like this my first year or two of blogging, and found that a) I already read plenty of books and b) I read plenty of debut books, contemporary books, standalone books, and diverse books. Reading books is not really my problem! (I may need other kinds of motivation, and stay tuned for more on that...)
The only reading challenge I still participate in is the Goodreads challenge, and that's more of a way to keep track of all the books I read. (I had to lower my goal, but still managed to make it to 175. Not as good as last year, but not bad!)
How is your 2015 going so far? Have you read any great new books, made goals or joined challenges? Tell me about it in comments!
