In 2012 I am starting to focus on my 40 by 40 list, 40 things I want to accomplish by the time I am 40 years old. One of those things is to read 500 books, so 100 books a year for the next 5 years. I think that is totally doable! Another thing on the list is to read all the books I should have read in high school (To Kill a Mockingbird, Catcher in the Rye, Of Mice and Men...) but didn't because I was home-schooled and we didn't have the normal required reading of secular high schools. So I thought I would start off the year with a few of the books on the my reading list for the beginning of the year.
I'm hoping to get through all of these in January and February! I know, it's a big list and that's a lot of reading, but I'm looking forward to spending more time reading and getting lost in a really great book more often. It is something I have missed. I really want reading to be something that my daughter will fall in love with as I have and that she will forever love books. What are some of your favorite books? What's on your reading list for the new year?
