Diversity on the Shelf 2014

I linked to this challenge in my New Year's post, but I need to just make a post dedicated to it because it's such a cool idea.

My Little Pocketbooks is hosting a reading challenge this year. I would try to summarize the reason and the purpose, but they do it so much better than I ever could that I'm not going to try to reinvent the wheel.

The point being: There's room for all sorts of characters and authors in the world. Read some of them.

I personally will be aiming for the 1-shelf goal of 1-6 books, because I can be a slow reader. I'm hoping to read more. I've already got plans for that many this year, so we'll see.

  1. I love your summary of the challenge. So true!! Welcome to the Diversity on the Shelf Reading Challenge. I look forward to reading your reviews. Thanks for joining.

  2. I'm so excited about this, I can't begin to explain it. I'm looking forward to reading -all- of the reviews. Thanks for hosting!

  3. I am a classic, "smell of the new book" kind of girl. I enforce this and already informed the local school that if computers were to take over my children's classrooms, I will pull my girls and homeschool.

  4. I'm still not sure how I feel about virtual textbooks, aside from the saving kids back problems later on aspect. Not everyone learns the same way so not everyone absorbs information off a computer. As an add-on kind of option, it's probably useful, but...
