100+ Book Challenge 2015 Sign Up

Back again for another year, I decided to do this challenge. Congrats to everyone who took part last year, even if you didn't read 100 books.

I read, so far, 85 books last year. Not bad at all in my opinion. I always aim for more though, even if it doesn't always happen.


Rules are as follows:

1. Create a post, but list as you read, either a blog or GoodReads, somewhere I can see it, and leave your url to that post in the Linky below.
2. Read some books. Any books. No limit in pages, even the phone book counts if that is your fancy. Just read!
3. That's it!



Sign up closes April 1st, 2015
Sign up is closed now. If you wish to join, you must email me or leave a comment.

Same as last year. Easy. Just read and link up your review so I can read it and possibly add to my wishlist. :-) 

Same as last year I will be awarding prizes if I can afford to. I am not under obligation to award prizes though, just to be clear. I did pretty good last year. I tried to award every one who added to the Linky each month. 

Each beginning of the month a new Linky for your reviews will be posted.

See you there and happy reading!

Read 100 books or more in 2015!
Good luck!

  1. There was a time when I cleared a couple hundred titles every year. Now I'm doing good to go through a dozen a year.

  3. I find Jan-Dec 31 spans taxing, hence I'm struggling through linking and even reading till I step out for new year's! Thereafter, I'll have time to consider writing new posts. Yours will be among them, my fellow Canadian. I would pleased to have you in my own parlour. Have a look. :) Joyeux Noel! Carolyn. https://cmriedel.wordpress.com/riedel-challenges-2015/

  7. Could never read that many, only if I count all the books I start but never finish, ha ha! I try to finish three books a month, but occasionally do four.

Why Upping Your PR Skills Can Help You as a Blogger

When it comes to running a blog, there are a lot of things you need to think about to be a success. Some of them are obvious, like coming up with quality content and marketing yourself well on social media, and yet they can be forgotten by a lot of bloggers. You may have great content but if you don't have good ways of boosting your blog's image, or dealing with the people who engage with you, then you'll be talking into a void. Here is why having good communication and PR skills, and even studying to improve them using something like an online master of communication management degree from the University of Southern California, is so vital for blog owners. You Want to Be a Credible Source of InformationWhen you put content out on the web, you want it to be either entertaining or useful – ideally both. You may work hard on writing good posts or hiring people who can create useful and interesting stuff…
