Bookshelf Love Update

Sign up here.

So when I decided to participate in Bookshelf Love, I knew it would be a bit of a challenge, but I also knew it was something I could do. When I signed up I was sick and I figured I would feel better and be able to start reading in a day or two. That didn’t happen. I was sick for two weeks. I also had no idea that I would receive a stack of books for review (I was only expecting two), which I obviously had to put before my Goodwill books. So once I was feeling better, and felt up to reading again, I had to focus on those books.

Now this week I’m sick again, and have hardly read anything. Things aren’t going so well, which is fine, I just wish that I was doing a bit better with this challenge. I’m going to keep reading and giving it my best, but I honestly can’t see myself reading all of the books I said I would read before my birthday (May 1oth).

Out of the 25 books I picked out, I’m only on my fourth. I’m hoping to finish Neuromancer this week and I plan on reading Redshirts next. Any suggestions on what I should read after that?
