The Challenge

February 12, 2010

My sister and I have decided the set a goal of reading (and writing reviews) of 25 books each this year. For some people, that's a pretty easy goal, for others a pretty lofty one. For us, I think it's just right (though we won't know for sure until the end of the year). As a way to keep us on track and to hold ourselves accountable, we started up a new blog that will be dedicated to our book reviews and discussions of books.

We are also looking to include any of our friends who would like to take on the 25 Books challenge to add their reviews to the blog as well by becoming regular contributors. If you are interested, you can send me your email and I can add you to the blog. We'll read a variety of books, including fiction, non-fiction, pop fiction, classics, teen fiction, etc.--whatever catches our interests at a given time. Some of the reviews will be short and concise, and some of them might take on a slightly longer form (I can be verbose every now and then, you might have noticed.) Either way, we'll let you know what we think of them, and who we think might also like them. If you've read any of the books we post about, it'd be fun to read comments and hear what you thought of them, too.

The book blog is called Sisters Recommend. (Click on the link to check it out.) The blog is in its infancy, so come along and watch us grow as we progress through the year.


  1. Good for you! I am in a book club with my "sisters". We only tackle one a month! Perfect pace for me. Good luck!

  2. I love this idea! I'll be emailing you...

  3. I love to read. Great goal!

    Happy Valentine's Day!
    A special note for you...

  4. I love reading, but I know I wouldn't keep up with the reviews. Good luck!
