goodreads.com new years challenge
wherein you select a number of books you aim to read this year, and shamelessly promote them on good reads... as i said on my facebook, the average member of the american "reading public" reads four books (or less) annually. those are primarily found on impulse racks at supermarkets emblazoned with names like JD Robb, and everyone's favorite, Dan Brown.
i would like to see anyone who does this double that number and get all their books to do so from independent booksellers, if not also by authors local to you.
lets see how many books the cult can read this year
