First, I want to remind you to check the posts below this one for contest information!
Today’s post is a little late and I apologize!
Today is my first 2008 Reading Goal Check-In!
Hopefully, in the future this post will be a bit more in-depth…this reading goal thing is still a work in progress.
Earlier this month, I decided to create some reading goals for myself and invited others to do the same…check here for more info.
It is not too late to share yours!
This is all just for fun so there is no pressure to meet the goal and the goal doesn’t have to be specific!
I update my progress in the sidebar here on the blog (as some of you may have noticed), but I thought that each month I would try and have a check-in for you to share about your month’s reading and to share more about mine…plus it gives us all a chance to discover new books and authors 😉
…so here it goes:
My Reading Goals for 2008 are:
-Read 200 books
-Read more eBooks (at least 20 is my specific goal)
-Read more new-to-me authors (at least 25 is my specific goal)
and I added…read a greater variety of genres
As of right now (and January is not over yet so these numbers may change), I have read 15 books!
So I am making some progress toward that goal.
I haven’t read any eBooks yet, but I have read 9 new-to-me authors!
Here is a list of my January reads!
Big Trouble by Marianna Jameson*
Body Heat by Katherine Garbera
Bride of Shadow Canyon by Stacey Kayne
Enchanting the Lady by Kathryne Kennedy*

I read a lot of great books this month!
My first read of 2008 was also one of my favorites, Maverick Wild by Stacey Kayne!
This was a wonderful western historical that I highly recommend!
In fact, I recommend all of the books by this talented author!
Since I loved this book so much, I would love to offer one of you a chance to read it and discover this great author!
I ended up with two copies of the book and I have a gently USED copy of the book to give to one lucky winner…while the book is used, it looks brand new!
If you don’t mind receiving a used book, leave a comment below saying:
“I’d love to read Maverick Wild!”
and you will be entered to win it!
I will announce the winner this Thursday so please check back to see if you won!
If you don’t win, I encourage you to check out this book yourself!
Also, please check back throughout the day tomorrow for reviews of some of my other reads for this month!
I would love to review each of my reads, but at this time I will just review a few each month.
So how is your reading coming this year?
Read any good new-to-you authors?
Made any new goals?
