I've decided to join in after I saw it posted on Wendy's page. I had planned to read from my Kindle more this year anyway, so why not. I will probably do -- Obsessed – Read 20 e-books. If down the line I do more, then I'll revamp the post.

No book list yet, I don't like to do that, but here is a list of the completed books so far:

1. The Given Day - Dennis Lehane
2. The Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin - Benjamin Franklin
3. Heaven is for Real - Todd Burpo
4. Macrobiotics for Dummies - Verne Verona
5. The Shunning ( (Heritage of Lancaster County #1)-Beverly Lewis
6. Poke The Box - Seth Godin
7. Imaginary Jesus - Matt Mikalatos

Oh Yay! I am so glad you doing this!
We can compare and share notes!

What do you have a kindle? If you had a nook we could share books.

It does look like fun. I have a Kindle Wendy, and it is about 2 years old now. Got it when it was expensive. LOL!

Yeah, after i wrote that I felt stupid cause it says you have a kindle right in your post. I guess i was just so excited you were doing the challenge!

busy91 said...

LOL! No worries. I finished it, on to my next book! I wrote a review.

I guess I might be able to do this, after all - the other reading challenge was too short as far as the time frame was concerned.
Do any books count (I'm thinking pdf or html format from the Gutenberg project, where we can get tons of classic novels)?
And how did nano end for you? I just wrote a blog mentioning it....
Will return to your blog again :o)

Hey Babs,

I failed Nano again this year. Turns out of all the months I was unemployed...NOVEMBER was the month I worked. LOL! Yes, any books can be used, as long as it is read on an e-reader.
