So one day while mooching around on Instagram (as you do) I happened across a post about a 2015 book challenge by Bringing up Burns ...
Bringing up Burns
I love the idea of this challenge although I think 26 books in a year is a little optimistic, that is unless they are all very short books! so I will follow this challenge but may cover a couple of the points with one book! (its not really cheating right?) If you want to join in pop over to the bringing up burns blog and check out her post.
My first book of 2015 is A terry Pratchett book, I have wanted to read one of his books for a very long time. Mr. M. has read quite a lot of his books but I never really had the time and other books took priority. Now is the time! I am starting with his first Discworld book which I am advised by friends and also a few of my lovely Instagram friends is not his best but they do get better so I am persisting with it. I have to say that Mr Pratchett does have a funny turn of phrase, very quirky, I like it!
I have also started to look into other options for my next few reads but often by the time I come to read them I have changed my mind! For example In December I was going to read a discovery of witches which I didn't get round to. To be fair I didn't read anything in December really due to sickness, rushing around for Christmas or choosing knitting over reading! But when I eventually I got round to picking up a book I had looked into what people were saying about the book and it put me off slightly (I will still read the book soon).
In other exciting news (well it is for me anyway) As a Christmas present my lovely Mr. M. upgraded my basic kindle to a kindle paperwhite which I am loving! I really need to get a case for it (I hope to knit one so it is something a little different.
So are you joining in with the 2015 challenges? do you have any books already lined up?
