Well because I was taking a break from blogging because I moved and started school and I am trying to get a balance between been super busy and reading, I missed the first day so I am already behind one of the only days a week I could sit down and read a full book. Actually, no thats not right I did listen to an audio but I dont remember where I started in it so now I have to work that out….

My Goals

Outlander what she left whats left of me an abundance of katherines

 

 

 

 

  • I am always busy so I don’t even really get a day off work cause other obligations will be sucking up at least most of those days so I don’t know when I will get to each one or if I will. All four or more would be great but I don’t want to over reach.
  • To participate in at least one of the events each day.
  • Comment on at least 2 blogs/vlogs per day.
  • Above all enjoy myself while I do all this!

Day 1 Challenge – Fictional World Travel

Today’s challenge is to list 3 to 6 books of fiction that take place in countries other than the one you currently reside in. Today’s challenge also comes with a giveaway. One winner will be able to pick a book of their choice up to 15USD. For me info or other entries check out the host blog.

I wish I could do this more creatively but some of the books are on my kindle and others are hardback and I am currently running late for work so this is what we get, but at least I did it :)

 

 

Till Next Time…

The Book Chain Exchange Idea

ImageI have been thinking about this for awhile now, and the more I think about it the more I really want it to happen.

I would like to start up a book chain exchange.

How it would work would be someone, myself for example, would post a blog stating they are looking to find a another person out there in the world to exchange books with, and we would post each other a book we have already read. The title and genre of this book can be left unknown if the giver so desires. But before we post the books we shall write on the inside of the front cover “This Book Was Read By” and we would write our own names and state and country underneath to start a column. For example I would write Jazmin Pitt-Gill VIC AU. Then once we have read the book we shall write our details down under the other persons, then find another person to exchange books with and post the book onto another person! And so the cycle continues.

To keep track of how far your original book has travelled around the world and how many people have added their names to the list, each person who is putting the book up for exchange will just repost the original blog to do so. This was the original giver can see how many times it has been exchanged :) Or you can post a picture of the names in your own blog, and share the link with the original person.

You may start more than one chain.

I dont know how well this idea will work, but I think it would be awesome to watch the list grow, and to see how many names may be already be on a book you receive. If anyone out there is interested in starting this up with me, give me a shout!
