This month I am reading...

A few weeks ago I blogged about wanting to kick (re)start a good reading habit. The topic popped up again over lunch with Bec a few days ago, and as we chatted about books and our mutual desire to read more, I started to think it might be a fun thing to share together through our blogs.



So, we've decided to start a little bloggy book club - and we would love you to join us!!!



All you need to do is post on your blog, in the first week of the month, about where you are at with your reading - whether it's a great book you have read, something you're in the middle of or something you just can't wait to read next - then pop over here and leave a comment on my monthly book post so that we can come and see what you've been up to.
If enough people are interested, I might even try to figure out how to make one of those linky lists on a post ;o)



We won't be choosing one book to read together - really we'd just love to hear about what everyone is reading - and if you don't manage any reading at all, or don't quite get around to posting, then never mind - just pop in when you get a chance, and we'd love to hear from you again next time!



I'll be back over the weekend to tell you about my book of the month - Tomorrow When the War Began - and maybe even share a button you can add to your blog if you'd like to book blog along =)

  1. What a fantastic idea! I'm in. Do a linky thing!

    I finished off the worst knitting-book in the known universe last week, and left it for some poor sucker to read at Ross River in the NT.

    At the moment I am reading Alexander McCall Smith's "Pimlico Mansions" and I am absolutely loving it!

    PS Love that first photo. Pretty books.

  7. I am reading "Last night in twisted river" by John Irving. I love his books and have read several (The World According to Garp, Hotel New Hampshire etc). His books are usually set in New Hampshire - US and I love the characters, bizarre stories and his writing style.
