Book Blitz Month And Reading Challenge

36

I had no clue that January was Book Blitz Month. Book Blitz was created probably because many people get books for Christmas. I don’t know about you, but I’ll take any excuse I can get to read more books! Of course, I’ve always got a book that I’m reading on hand. I’m challenging myself to read mostly books that I OWN already.

I’m an e-book hoarder. I take advantage of obtaining FREE e-books daily. Some of my favorite sites include BookGorilla.com, ManyBooks.net, Tydale.com, RomanceRockStars.net, and BookBub.com just to name a few. Of course, you can also keep track of Amazon’s top 100 Free books too. I also get to choose from some of the Kindle’s First Picks thanks to having an Amazon Prime Membership.

Book Blitz Month And Reading Challenge both of which if you're a book lover, you'll want to check out.

As a result, I have thousands of e-books that I OWN. Many of which, I know I’ll never read, but because it was available for free at one time I got it. You never know when you may be in the mood to read a different kind of book, right? At least that’s my argument for getting them. Plus, I do like having the ability to loan out books to my friends who are looking for a new book to read.

Finding out that January was Book Blitz month made me decide that I am going to challenge myself to read at least 52 books that I ALREADY own this year. I typically read that many books AT LEAST a year. You can follow along with the books I’ve read each month by reading my monthly Booklover’s Book Reviews. There are times when I do reviews for books outside of those monthly posts too.

    • The image doesn’t want to load on my site. So, I did update it with just the link. I look forward to enjoying the #ShelfLove Challenge.

      Thank you for stopping by and commenting. I hope to see you again soon.

  1. Wow 52 books a year! I would love to be able to read that many! I only read when I go to bed and unfortunately barely make it past two pages before I fall asleep lol! Good luck with the challenge! #KCACOLS

  2. I hadn’t realised this either, what a great challenge. I really must get myself back into my daily reading routine. Thanks so much for sharing, you’ve motivated me to charge up the Kindle and read #DreamandSparkle

    • I’m glad that I could get you motivated to start reading again. It’s such a wonderful way to learn and escape the realities of our own worlds.

      Thank you for stopping by and commenting. I hope to see you again soon.

    • Thank you for the blessings. I hope you decided to jump on the bandwagon and make time to read if it’s something that you enjoy doing.

      Thank you for stopping by and commenting. I hope to see you again soon.

    • It’s been said that you make time for the things that matter the most to you in life. Reading is a big part of my life, and I strive to make time for it as much as possible. What is your number one hobby?

      Thank you for stopping by and commenting. I hope to see you again soon.

    • The free sites do work with e-readers. I typically get the books from Amazon since I have a Kindle Fire. However, all you need is an Amazon app to be able to read the books from Amazon your tablet.

      Thank you for stopping by and commenting. I hope to see you again soon.

  3. I totally want to read more this year, though 52’s a bit of a stretch for me at the moment. Maybe I’ll try 12!! Thanks for the challenge and for linking up with us #FabFridayPost

    • I’m glad that you liked the printable idea. I hope that you get to savor reading more this year. Reading opens up so many doors.

      Thank you for stopping by and commenting. I hope to see you again soon.

  4. Good luck with the book challenge, that is a lot of books to read in one year. You will definitely be doing better than me, who has only read 3 books in the last 18 months, I used to read a book a week! Thanks for linking up at #fortheloveofBLOG. Claire x

    • Reading books are my escape route from the realities of life. I love getting lost in the stories of books. I also enjoy learning new things too.

      Thank you for stopping by and commenting.

    • Well, I hope this idea has encouraged you to dive into the books you own this year. It amazes me how quickly it is to accumulate books, but yet not read them once we have them.

      Thank you for stopping by and commenting.

    • Hopefully, you’ll gain the chance to read more this year. It’s such a wonderful pass time. At least, you have some books to get you started should you decide to do it.

      Thank you for stopping by and commenting. I hope to see you again soon.

  5. Wow 52 books a year! That’s a lot of books!
    I’ve set myself s challenge to read one book per month. I love reading but with being a new mommy, working full time and running a blog, I don’t get as much reading time as I’d like.
    I’ve already finished January’s book so I’m ahead of schedule.
    Like you I have lots of books which I’ve purchased but am yet to read. I prefer my books on paper though. Maybe ill make a start in some which are gathering dust! #KCACOLS

    • I like holding a book in my hands too. I try to read at least two non-Kindle books a month. I still make trips to the library quite regularly. I have gotten ONE book read so far this month. I need to get my nose buried in a book to finish out the other three books for this month at least.

      Congrats on being a new mommy. It’s a fun, but challenging journey.

      Thank you for stopping by and commenting. I hope to see you again soon.

    • Thank you for the good well wishes. I haven’t even read as much as I normally do since this year started. This year is just getting the better of me with so much life commotion. I don’t see a slow period coming anytime soon either. However, that just means we are busy living life to the fullest, right?

      Thank you for stopping by and commenting.
