42 Books

booksMy newest venture: 42 books in 52 weeks!

Why 42?

Because, “the answer to the ultimate question of life, the universe, and everything is 42” – at least according to Douglas Adams who wrote The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.  Also, it gives me 10 weeks to fiddle around and procrastinate. ?

But why do it at all?

First, I’m great at buying and downloading books and starting to read them, but not so good at finishing them – so this project is selfishly meant to motivate me.

Second, I am inspired by many of the books I read, and yet I don’t have a satisfactory outlet for the thoughts they encourage. So I’m creating that outlet, in the form of blog posts. Some will be reviews, some will be random thoughts inspired as I read that book, but every book will get a blog post. Promise.

I know I’m the big winner here, but I hope you get some value out of my new commitment too. Books and links added here, as soon as I start. I’d love to get your feedback on the books too.

  1. Looking forward to seeing what you read and what you think of them, Ang. That’s an exciting challenge, good for you.

  2. Wow, Ang! I’m looking forward to this. I read between 1 – 3 books a week, but I have never been disciplined enough to write about them for other people (though, depending on the book, especially if it’s non-fiction, I will occasionally journal about whatever thoughts it has triggered. 🙂 )

    Go you! Happy year of 42! 😀

  3. Thank you! I’m excited about it too. It’s like I’m giving myself more permission to read. LOL!
