With all the excitement of becoming a foreign exchange student, I completely forgot to update my reading list as I read books last year. I even neglected my Goodreads for a while… but I’m changing that now.
Just like last year, I’ve joined the Goodreads Challenge and am aiming for 24 books this year. I just finished my fifth one – The Graduation (The Testing Series) – and am trying to pick out what book I’d like to read next.
If anyone would like to follow me on Goodreads, simply send me a friend request there and I’ll add you. I’m not worried about adding people there since there’s hardly any of my personal information on that site. I’m also keeping a reading list here on the blog if anyone doesn’t have Goodreads and wants to just keep up here.
I’m thinking about doing reviews, but it’s still a debate for me. I’m honestly a little overloaded with schoolwork and other activities that I’d rather not make reading not-fun by writing reviews. I guess if I really want to recommend a book, I will. We’ll see what happens.
Catch ya later!
Well, I can officially check off one item on my 17 Before 17 list already!
Since I am staying in Massachusetts with one of my sisters for the summer, I decided to either get a part-time job or do some volunteer work during my time here. After all, I need something to do during the day instead of sitting around playing videos games or reading… well, reading isn’t that bad, but you know what I mean.
Being an avid reader, I spend a lot of time going to bookstores and libraries and sometimes they can get a little messy, just as any store does. Books will be in the wrong section or out of order and for a person like me, that’s very unnerving. So I went to one of the local libraries in the area and asked about volunteer opportunities and guess what? They have them!
So for the summer I will be working in a public library organizing the returned books and making sure things are in order a few days each week.
Because the job is not every day of the week, I still might try to get a part-time job so that I can make some extra spending money. Of course, I’ll also be working on learning how to drive once I get my permit (which is also on my list).
We’ll see what happens.
