Yesterday MJ from Wandering in the Stacks wrote a post about Books Through Bars, a New York-based organization that’s dedicated to putting more books in the hands of prison inmates.
Ana from Things Mean a Lot is someone who’s added tons of books to my tbr list and shelves over the years. She recently wrote a guest post over at Book Smugglers about the things she’s looking forward to next year. If you haven’t already read the post, I should warn you to have a pen and paper ready. There’s a ton of things you’re going to want after reading Ana’s wish list. The Thorn and the Blossom by Theodora Goss looks amazing.
Judith at Lesswammes is hosting a Wishlist Challenge next year. This challenge may get me to read more books from my virtual tbr pile and wish list.
Another new challenge is the Tea and Books Reading Challenge hosted by Birgit at The Book Garden. The challenge: read bricks (books that are at least 700+ pages long). I own a few books that fit that description plus I plan on reading 1Q84 soon, so I think I’m joining. [Edit: Thanks to Fiona for the info!]
