Pinterest Reading Challenge: The List

Pinterest Reading Challenge: The List

So, as previously mentioned in my last post, "The Reason: The birth of a wine-loving bookaholic" I taken several Pinterest Reading Challenge suggestion lists and have compiled them into my very own challenge for this blog. The following is the list of suggestions. Some are my own ideas to help get me out of my comfort zone of what I normally read. Others are suggestions from friends, family members and readers like you! Thank you to all who have helped contribute to an idea or a book to read!

I've decided that to spice things up: my posts will not go in the order they are listed. So, don't hold your breath waiting for me to respond to the next suggestion, as it probably will not be the next one I'll be working on. I'm leaving it all up to chance!

So, 'Chance,' I've written every idea on a Popsicle stick (now my office smells like a giant Popsicle without all the sugary goodness!) and placed them in a canning jar. A couple problems:

  1. All the ideas don't fit in one jar (at least not in the jar I have).
  2. I can't pull one out. However, I found while shaking it to make a tinkling noise for Emry (learn more about him and my other fur children in the Lifestyle section), the side to side motion makes one pop up out of the jar.  This could be a really cool way to have the topic chosen for me. It really would be a total chance as to what I have to read next! But we'll see, seeing how I still have a third problem.
  3. Not only is the jar too small for all the topics, I don't even have all the topics written out yet! So this may not work. I'll have to see if I can find a bigger jar. But for now, the 150 topics that are in the jar will do.

I will continually update this list as I come across new ideas, but for now: the list... so far.
