Last year I created a summer reading list for further incentive to read those books I've been putting off. There are few things more satisfying than checking a box and turning the last page of a book- though though the latter is a little bittersweet.
This year I joined the 50 Book Pledge to keep track of my progress, and because I wanted the challenge of reading 50 (!) books in a year. I'm also determined to get through all of the Game of Thrones, excuse me, the Song of Ice and Fire series so I can scoop up the 6th installment when it is released. (I do love book releases!)
I'm currently reading Talk Like TED: The 9 Public-Speaking Secrets of the World's Top Minds. Think of the lives changed and people impacted after watching a TED talk. Now imagine you're the one who has impacted those people. I want to do that. I also want to be able to tell stories where I don't feel like ending them with "... and then I found $20!"
I'm also making my way through Dracula. Yep, the O.G. of vampires. I'm reading this during the brightest and least spooky part of the year because, let's face it- I'm a wuss when it comes to scary stories. And I prefer my vampires sparkly, sensual (I'm looking at you, Lestat), or being kicked around by Buffy.
I'll admit that my to-read bookshelf is overflowing but that won't stop me from asking for recommendations. What are you reading?
