Bookish committments

The last couple of months have  been full of tempting book commitments. I'm not usually one to follow challenges, and I don't commit to reading a lot of books that friends recommend. I'm much more likely to add a book to my endless list and eventually pick it up. I did promise (myself) that I would read all the books on Janssen's best of 2011 list, and I'm doing the personal challenge, but I'm not usually much of a read-a-long joiner. However, I find myself suddenly committed (or really interested in committing to) reading several books with or for my friends. It's been a while since I have you a bookish list, so how about one now?

  • First, the Black Dagger Brotherhood series. A local friend lent me the entire series, and I really enjoyed the first three. I should review them, hm?
  • Andi Can. Not. Stop. Talking. About Outlander . I read the first 200 pages, apparently I'm just at the point where it takes off. I promised her I'd pick it back up.
  • My next commitment for the BlogHer Book Club launches on May 31st. I haven't started the book yet, but thankfully it's not a chunkster.
  • Last, everyone's favorite rock star, Trish is hosting The Standalong, a group reading of Stephen King's The Stand to take place over two months in June and July.
If I just read those books and nothing else, that'll take me right through the end of the summer! Have you see how thick some of those are?? Tell me, did Andi or Trish convince YOU to read one of their pet projects? Have you read The Black Dagger Brotherhood? What do you have on tap for the next couple of months?


  1. I read the first book of the BDB. I enjoyed it but just haven't continued the series. I need to remedy that.

  2. I absolutely loved The Outlander books, especially the first three! She's right, it picks up right about where you left off, and then it's hard to set the books down after that. :)

  3. Andi does have me thinking I should finally read beyond the first book in Gabaldon's series, but I have no idea when that will happen!

  4. Woohoo! I do hope you love Outlander as much as I did. If not, feel not guilt in ditching. *fingerscrossed*
