A forgotten challenge

Hey ya'll,

Forgot to mention another challenge sponsored by Laura at http://lauragerold.blogspot.com/2009/11/all-about-brontes-challenge-2010.html

The All About the Brontes Challenge---should be very interesting and challenging!
Stuff I should've read years ago, but I don't think I would've appreciated it as much then.

We'll see.... :-D

Another challenge

Hey ya'll,

Yes I'm from Texas. :-D

Joined another challenge with Becky. Only 2 books in 2010--I can do that.

18th and 19th Women Writers Reading Challenge
Read books written by women authors that were written and/or published between 1700 and 1900. Contemporary historical books set in this time period do not count towards this challenge! The challenge is to encourage you to read some classics.

Cool!!

Ok, one more. This is The Shelf Discovery Challenge. Oddly enough I just got this book at the library and now I have an opportunity to read some classics that I never read before. I only need to read six books. More info at http://needmoreshelves.blogspot.com/2009/10/shelf-discovery-challenge.html.

So many books so little time... :-D

Aaaccckkk! I did another one "Once Upon a Time Challenge"--5 books in a year, sponsored by
Tina at http://5150bookslut.blogspot.com/2009/11/once-upon-time-reading-challenge.html

ok this is getting ridiculous..yet another one, but they are a short number of books. The latest is

Book Challenges

Hi again,

I've just signed up for 3 book challenges so far.

The first is the GLBTQ challenge for 2010 with Amanda.

And on Becky's Book Reviews http://blbooks.blogspot.com/
I have signed up the Arthurian Challenge 2009-2010 (April - March) and this is one of my very favorite subjects.

I also signed up for the Celebrate the Author Challenge 2010.

So we shall see how it goes. Wish me luck!

Greetings!!

Hi Everyone,

It's been a very long time since I've posted to my blog because I've been very busy. I had some ambitions earlier in the year to do a lot of reading challenges, which sadly never turned out. But my friend Amanda is starting a GLBTQ Reading Challenge for 2010. For more info go here: http://glbt-reading.blogspot.com/
Amanda also has a couple of other blogs to check out: http://networkedblogs.com/p17783345.
And another writing blog: http://networkedblogs.com/p17783345

I have been reading a lot on my own, as well as books for my library book clubs--scifi, teen, and this past year I started moderating a Jane Austen Book Club that has taken off and I'm thrilled. Two of us have joined the Jane Austen Society of North America and are totally hooked. Said friend Karen also has a blog http://karensbooksandchocolate.blogspot.com/

She also started a Jane Austen blog for San Antonio/South Texas Janeites:
http://southtexasjaneites.blogspot.com.
Check them both out--they are great.

I hope to post more often, letting you know what I'm reading, and working on giving coherent book reviews. I'll also be posting interesting facts about the world of books. I read a lot of different things and hopefully that will keep things interesting.

I hope you find my blog worthwhile. I welcome comments and constructive criticisms.
