Seduce: to win over; attract

Yarn seduces me with her siren call. "Pick me! Pick me!" I am hopelessly enchanted by yarn and am delighted by the endless choices.

52 Books in 52 Weeks in 2011


I had so much fun last year with the Ravelry group, 52 Books in 52 Weeks, I had to join for this year.

So once again... the challenge is to read 52 books in 52 weeks.  Last year I read 92 books (one more than the year before).  So for this year, I'd like to challenge myself to read more than last year... maybe even make it to 104.

So check back later and see how I'm doing.

Good for you! I start a lot of books and confess I get sidetracked doing other things. I'll look forward to following your progress.

Well, Susan, I decided to join this Reading Challenge this year. I might as well given how many books I peruse at the Library, and how many books I've read since the installation late last year of the Kindle Application for my iPhone.

I wish you the best in reaching your goal! I'm sticking with 52 books for 2011. I suppose I'll actually get the dust blown from my blog this year, too...

Best wishes!

Good for you! Guess I'm already behind -- unless knitting books count ;)?

52 books in a year would double what I normally read. Too many projects get in my way. :-) Good luck with your goal!
