Back to Bookish Basics

Now that it’s 2015 and my postaday challenge is over (kind of – I’m well aware that there are about 80 blog posts that need writing) I can in some ways return this blog to what I want it to be, rather than a day-in-the-life type thing. I don’t doubt that it’ll take me a while to get back into the swing of things, but you’ve got to start somewhere.

One of my biggest passions, as you’ll probably know, is books. So when I saw the 2015 Reading Challenge, I thought “yep, that’s for me”. It features 52 books in 50 different categories, giving you guidance for what to read over the course of the year. I’m not going to complete this in any kind of order, as some people seem to be doing (it’s restricting enough as it is) but my aim is to have it completed by December 31st 2015 and blog about my journey along the way.

I’d better get reading.
