50 book challengeI stumbled across this post by accident which is possibly the best way to find things to do really, serendipity and all that.

Anyway the ONE thing I have truley missed since the girls joyous arrival in our lives is the pleasure of reading. When I used to commute to London I would always have a book on the go and could easily devour one a week using the return commute to London as my reading time.

Then two little people arrived and I have a four year hole in the reading part of my brain (blogs don’t count!) I have piles of books that mum or my sister in law, also avid readers, have passed on to me so I have no problems with material to read it’s time that is the problem.

So seeing as I am declaring 2013 as back to me year and dedicating more time to me and the girls and the family as a whole, I can also carve out the odd half an hour to fulfill this passion of mine.

13497818The last book I started over the summer was the notorious 50 shades of grey which ended up in my bin. I promise you, I threw it out. If I am to spend my precious time reading then it has to be an excellent and gripping book so I promise to write the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth with regards to any reviews I may write.

I received Casual Vacancy by JK Rowling for Chirstmas so I’m going to make a start on that. If you’re interested in taking part (If you don’t get to 50 it’s not a problem, you’re only up against yourself) please head over to Mama Owl and leave a comment on her blog.

My second project I shall be undertaking is 365 held over at The Boy and Me. It means one photo a day for a year and I shall be posting my photos on the blog on Saturdays. I got as far as April in 2011, last year I didn’t bother so this year, fresh start let’s see how I get on.

Both of the above projects are open to everyone you don’t have to be a blogger so please click through if you’re interested.
