(please forgive the obvious over-Photoshopping on this image.. I had a bit too much fun with it)
The reading streak started when my coworkers and I rediscovered GoodReads and started to obsessively add all the books we've ever read to the list. I mentioned to EchantedDroppings that I'd be hitting the triple digits of books read by year's end. So far, so good.
A few weeks after declaring this, I was reading on BoingBoing an article about how Art Garfunkel has read over 1000 books since 1968. I looked at the detailed list he has listed on his site.. pretty impressive, I must say. I then stumbled onto the list of "1001 books you must read before you die" and quickly found a group on GoodReads which is dedicated to accomplishing just this.
I wanted to end the post by showing a photograph of the amazing bookmark that Jessica from LostButtonStudios had made me during a bookmark swap but I recently lost it :( I feel pretty awful about it - I lost it in the most ridiculous way and it was such a one-of-a-kind item customized for myself. Sigh.. I will be posting later on the gorgeous earrings she included in her package as a separate entry.
Well, that is all in this episode. Stay tuned for more!
