Since I moved from Texas to Mississippi in Fall of 2007 I have been reading way more books than comics. But last year thanks to finally taking the dip into digital comics I read way more comics than books. Which caused my backlog of books to get almost into the "Hey we might need to send Dubba T onto Hoarders." level.
So knowing how I am not one to back down from a challenge my girlfriend made me a deal. In 2015 she is going to read 100 books. And I have to read more than 100. If we both accomplish our goals we are going to take the vacation we have planned for 5 years and keep putting off. If she fails she has to pay for a year of the Marvel digital service for me. If I lose I have to finally sit my lazy rear down and organize and cull at least part of my 15 longboxes of stuff I have bought but not read.
I was just going to read a book,and write a quick review,take a picture of the book. Then post both to Facebook. I did the first two and didn't like them. So I have re-wrote the first two,and am going to post the reviews here and at my blog. I added small stuff like what format the book was.If this was the first time I read the book. And how much I paid for it.I am a bit OCD about books. So when I buy one I take a small piece of paper and write down what it cost me. Then put that paper in the book to use as a bookmark when I read it at a later date.
Maybe others will join in and we can all learn about books we haven't heard of.
