I wish there was a codeword for “you sprung that plan on me too last-minute and I didn’t have enough time to mentally prepare myself” because I feel kinda bad when someone spontaneously invites me to do something and I’m just like no no no no I need WARNING I have to have enough time to build up my social energy
an accurate representation of my social skills

2014 Book Challenge
It’s time to pick a reading goal for 2014! I chose to read 50 books in 2013, but for my sixth 50 Book Challenge, I’m challenging myself to read 100 books this year. I read 100 books in a year only once before, in 2011.
1. Choose an amount of books that you want to read in 2014 (e.g. 25, 50, 75, 100)
2. Read, read, read!
There isn’t a rule about what kind books these have to be so read anything you want (novels, children’s books, short stories, non-fiction, graphic novels, school books…). You can make a list of the books you want to read before you start or you can choose books as you go along.
To keep track of how much you’re reading, you can use the Goodreads Reading Challenge (they will launch a new one in early January), create a list (on Tumblr, LibraryThing, WordPress, Blogger, BookLikes, your computer) or a playlist on your YouTube channel, write book reviews or create video reviews, post every book cover, post photos of your books - it’s up to you. I like to create a 50 Book Challenge page, tag my book reviews and use Goodreads. Use the 50 book challenge tag so that others can keep up with your progress. You can use the above banner on your page or create your own!
However, although this is a quantifiable challenge, the most important thing is that you’re reading and that you’re having fun doing it :)
I’m doing the 50 Book Challenge for a second year in 2014! I’ll remember to actually tag them with the tag next year too.
