April is Book Binge Month!

31 Mar

Mary P suggested a book binge for the month of April. I’ve stolen this post from her site so that everyone can see the rules and those that are participating.  I believe a few more people have joined, but I’ll admit I was too lazy to copy everyone here. Go check out Mary P and see everyone else in the comment section!

I’m quite excited. Hopefully the boy will let me get a few pages in so I don’t feel humbled at the end of the month.


Do you love to bury yourself in a book? Are you always on the lookout for suggestions, good titles, provocative reads? You’ve come to the right place! MaryP’s Book Binge is fast approaching. A month in which you read, log, and then post everything you read all through April.

On May 1, you’ll each post our lists on our blogs, and then everyone will know… that I read a LOT of schlock!

(And, to answer a couple of questions: yes, you can include books you re-read, so long as you re-read them in between April 1 and 30. Yes, you may also include books you start but don’t finish, just note the page at which you gave it up. Something like, “Quit, page 47 of 322″. Or, if you’re Addofio, “Quit, page 752 of 782.” No, you may not include books you read to your children – unless those books are at least 125 pages long.)

So far, we have:

Participants:
Bookmama
Angela
Nicole
Dani
Karyn
KM
Heath
LoryKC
Karin
Kat
Bluebunny

A maybe:
Addofio

and
A self-confessed voyeur:
Kate

Anyone else participating, leave a comment and we’ll add you to the list!

AND, for all you lucky participants, we have these lovely blog buttons! There’s a small and a medium version. All you have to do is copy and paste the the following code into your sidebar or post.

For SMALL (125 pixels wide, suitable for a sidebar),

Copy and paste this code:

For MEDIUM (240 pixels wide; your text will wrap to the right of the image),

Copy and paste this code:
<a href=”http://daycaredaze.wordpress.com/2007/03/29/upcoming-event-reminder/”&gt; <img src=”http://farm1.static.flickr.com/185/437987932_48710a408c_m.jpg&#8221; style=”margin: 0 10px 10px 0; float:left” alt=”book binge” border=”0″ /></a>

    Good for you…I can’t remember the last time I actually read a book. I have started a bunch, but with two little ones, I have no time to read 😦 Maybe once they’re older and do things on their own I’ll have more time!

    I’ve begun my first two. The Oliver Sacks book is fascinating!! I hope you find a few really good ones this month, too.

    I’ve just signed up too and left a link to my post about the challenge and my first completed book on Mary’s blog. It’s great to be organized ahead of time.
