Reading with Nerd in the Brain: Challenges, etc.

Advertisements

I’ve been reading books. I swear.

Nerd in the Brain has some pretty cool reading and writing challenges that I just noticed today.

I’m doing fairly well on my challenges – the ones in my brain, not the ones for Nerd in the Brain. I’ve been keeping track of all of the books that I’ve read for 2015 on Goodreads. If you want to see what I’ve read or what I plan to read, that list is here:

Or you could start your own list and share with everyone or no one.

So for this challenge, I started with “And the Mountains Echoed” by Khaled Hosseini. My book was stolen yesterday. No joking. I only had about 50 pages left. So I will have to pick up another copy in order to finish challenge #4 – a book that includes math.

The kids are reading books too. I might not have them do the challenges.  It could be fun. Or like pulling teeth.

It remains to be seen. I’ll be over here plotting fun reading things for my kids to do.

“Just a small town girl – living in a lonely world.” Concert tickets are practically essential. Musicals are the key to life. I like movies, music,books, and corny jokes.

  1. I’m gonna have to check out the challenge and the book… I listened to an audio of A Thousand Splendid Suns so I think I’d like the one you mentioned, provided not dirty, rotten their steals it!

My newest love is blogging that helps me stay focused and grounded and most importantly find the humor in everyday occurrences. I am constantly evolving into the new person I'm becoming with each new day, and often stopping to pause for just a moment to take it all in while breathing and taking time to enjoy the ride.

      Well, self-help books count . . . they would probably tell you that they are just as good as any book. Self-affirmations and so on. 😉

  3. I’m doing the goodreads challenge in which you choose the number of books to read during the year and then try to meet your own goal. So far, so good. I’ve been reading a lot more than I usually do.

      I have been doing that too! I had to increase my goal so that’s a plus. 🙂
