For a Bit of Light Reading.

As part of my new years resolution (happy new year btw) I've decided to try and read as many books this year as I can. I'm aiming for about 50 and I've nearly finished one already so it's looking good. I love to read, I enjoy nothing more than completely loosing myself in a book, new or old. So I thought what better way to motivate myself to read more than by dedicating a post at the end of every month to the books I've gotten through that month. I think it's perfect because not only does it motivate me to reach my aim but maybe it can give you guys some new books to read too. I have a kindle so chances are most of my reading will be done on that or not because the reality is even though I adore my kindle and take it everywhere because it's so lightweight and effortless, sometimes the kindle store has you forking out 2 or 3€ more for a book than the paperback version and it really ticks me off because it's digital, how can it cost more than the real thing you know? If anything it should be costing 2 or 3€ less. This is my biggest con with the kindle, I really think amazon needs to get their shizz together. I'm curious if any of you have noticed this? All negative remarks aside, I'm excited to start this little 'goal' and if any of you have any book recommendations, please leave a comment below?! I like anything that has nothing to do with vampires ;)

This is such a good idea! I rarely have time to sit down and read, but doing this would be the perfect way to achieve that!

Great idea! I was think of doing something similar about the books I read but as more of a one of thing!

I completely agree with you about Kindle prices, you can find some real bargains but when a digital book costs £10 its just ridiculous. I also do little monthly reading roundups on my blog so I'm looking forward to reading yours!I'm aiming for 52 books in 2013.
I don't know if you'd be interested but I also co-run a collaborative book blog so if you would like to write a review for us sometime we'd love to hear from you :)
You can find it here - xx

I love to read too - but i broke my kindle just before Xmas & was gutted. I loved reading The Electric Michelangelo by Sarah Hall & Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet by Jamie Ford :o)

I really need to get on with reading, I must have read 2 books last year due to blog reading taking over. Books on my iPad are crazy sometimes!? Ridiculous.

50 books in a year!? WOW I've been stuck on the same book for about 4 months now.. I love the book but I find it so hard to find time to read it.. there's always something more important to do! :(

Wow! 50 this year! Thats almost one a week. Good luck! Although if I was reading Lauren Conrad i'd probably read it in a day.

I definitely have to agree with you on the price of Kindle 'books' - it's one of the main reasons I hate mine so much - it's so frustrating!
Good luck on getting through 50 books, I struggled to reach 20 last year! xx
