I Am Super Excited

Why?

Because the Great American Read Contest is happening as we speak:  May 22, 2018 to October 18, 2018.  There is a checklist of 100 novels.  You can vote daily for your favorite, but only once.  On day two, day three, etc… you can vote for different books.  Eventually the days will run out and a winner will be crowned.  That way if you are like me and have a hard time choosing among all of your children, you do not have to pick just one.

Don’t judge me.

Books are people too!

Uh no they aren’t.  I hear you.  But I ignore you. Some of my best friends are books so why can’t they be like my kiddos.

I am being silly and I digress. Back to it shall we?

I have read 43 of the 100.  My TBR queue just blew up with the remainder.  I want to try to read them all.  Not by the 10/18/18 contest end date mind you but one day.  Of course there are a few that in my humble opinion should not even make the cut.  Check out the list and see for yourself.  http://pbs.bento.storage.s3.amazonaws.com/hostedbento-prod/filer_public/KLRN/downloads/events/TGAR_Book_Checklist.pdf

If the above link doesn’t work, try klrn.org/greatread. Then maneuver around.  The website is set up for ease of use.

In other interesting news, I have selected Swan Song by Robert Mc Cammon as my June book of the month.  You see next month the Skimmers and Sippers are going rogue.  We are all reading something different and will give our critique of the book to the group when we meet.  Then if anyone is interested, they can pick up the novel for themselves.

Yep, that’s me living on the edge.

As always, more to come.
