I have been reading a book every other day for almost two decades now. And yes, I have a very active social work, and love life! I guess the secret is carrying books with you at all times (I take the lighter ones in my purse and leave the heavy tomes for bed time). Five minutes while waiting in line gain me two or three pages of quiet laughing while everyone around look bored and look at me like I'm nuts. Always nuts for quality time!

I read AT LEAST one book a week and have since I was quite young. I have a running request list at the library which I update as I read book reviews. I also frequent half price book stores, rummage sales and thrift stores and exchange books with friends. Most of my family are big readers, we are unbeatable at Trivial Pursuit and Jeopardy.
Some of my latest favorites are:
Crashing Through: The Extraordinary True Story of the Man Who Dared to See by Robert Kurson
3 Cups of Tea by Greg Mortenson and David Oliver Relin
Mountains Beyond Mountains by Tracy Kidder
The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Anne Barrows
An Echo in the Bone by Diana Gabaldon(9th in a series, read the first 8 in one summer)
Half of a Yellow Sun by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
I also like the Best Short Stories and Best Essays of the year

I did a drawing project during the 2007/8 financial year called '366drawings', and published it on the web at http://www.366drawings.com during the 2008/9 financial year. It was comprised of 366 drawings or one drawing a day for a year and a day. I found it a very fulfilling project and didnt have too many problems keeping up with the work load.

Some good and some bad and everything in between. Fiction and non-fiction. Yes, I recommend it and yea I grew up in a very bookish family. And also I feel like an alien in more or less every social situation because of my great big rumble sale of a mind.

It started out as a meme some 6 years ago and spread quickly through the blogs. I'm not surprised by its longevity, actually, because people who read LOVE to read.

I've been keeping book lists on mine since 2005, with some of those books being selections I've made based on other book lists' comments. If you're interested in fiction, I'll recommend Frank Herbert's Dune series, Jeff Long's The Descent and Deeper, and Michael Kodas' High Crimes: The Fate of Everest in an Age of Greed.

Happy reading!

I think what Inaki did was great. I figure this could be a way for me to knock down some of those 'blockers' I've been having.

I might try to give it a shot!
Last New Year, I tried out Vegetarianism for one month. That went well (I'm Vegetarian to this day).
Hopefully I'll have the same luck with this challenge.

Much respect 🙂

Thanks for sharing your book list chrbutler. Let me think over the day for a couple fav. books of mine for the year. This also is the first time that I'm seriously thinking of getting a kindle once I've finished reading all my review books that are starting to pile up.
