I posted yesterday about my top 10 out of that list.

for 2014, goodreads has again challenged me to set a goal and this year, I’m going to try and reach 100. I was given a Nook for my birthday last year so I have that at my fingertips .. and working for a digital media company, I have access to just about every eBook I could want to read and my 2 library cards are definitely getting a good workout. I’m not sure if I’ll get to 100 (which evens out to about 2 books every week) but it’ll be fun trying!

currently reading: Easy – Tammara Webber

currently re-reading for book club: Mr. Penumbra’s 24 Hour Bookstore – Robin Sloane
