Hi my name is Rebecca Lyman and reading is my passion. In 2013 I set a personal goal to read 50 books, and over the course of the year I ended up reading 60! In 2014 I set a new goal to again read 60 books and ended up reading over 100. For 2015, I have decided to do things a little differently. Most of my goals for the year relate more to my blogging, trying to participate in more book blog memes and write about different book-related topics. I also challenged myself to participate in more reading challenges and read a more varied selection of books. You can see a full listing of my 2015 goals here. This blog will document my journey through a year of reading and also will catalog which books I read through the year. Please feel free to post suggestions or your own reviews on any books discussed!
This blog was inspired by my mom, who also started a blog last year (www.joanne94w.wordpress.com), and encouraged by my husband. My mom and I both set “goals” for this year for a personal achievement. Her goal is quilting and I encouraged her to write a blog to document her quilting projects during the year. Once a month we spend a Saturday together both working on our goals. I started this blog not thinking it would last. I didn’t think anyone would be interested in what I thought about the books I was reading. Little did I know that there is a whole world of book bloggers out there and they are all interested in what you have to say. I have developed a deeper passion for reading through my blog (though I didn’t think that was even possible) as well as a passion for blogging. I love writing my reviews and other articles and learning new facts about books and authors. I love the community that I have become a part of through book blogging and the opportunities it is giving me to grow as a person.
