I recently ordered an e-reader and because it did cost quite a bit more than a book I decided to challenge myself by first reading enough free books to compensate for its price. By free I really mean free, either public domain books or free as decided by the author. This means I’ve decided on reading a lot of classics I’ve either read as a kid (in Dutch) or ‘always wanted to read’.
I discovered GoodReads and created a list of books to read. I planned on having 42 books on there — we all know 42 is the only correct number — and ended up with 44. I’ll leave the extra two on, so I can skip a book or two because they suck.
Check out my readinglist: my before-buying-ebooks shelf:
Also, I created a reading list page with links to books I’ve read and books I want to read. I spent the day geeking out and tweaking Goodreads-wordpress-plugins so I can have my shelves show up nicely.
Very excited, it got shipped today and should arrive tomorrow. Snow might interfere so keeping my fingers crossed!
