Update on my Reading Challenge for 2013

I admit it, I have slowed down a bit. I started out really good, but then I hit a wall. It was taking me longer and longer to finish a book. I love reading, don't get me wrong, but I haven't been able to stay focused on a book for too long. So, my goal, this year like many years in the past, is to read 50 books. 50 is not too unreasonable is it? As of today, September 29, 2013, I have read 28 books. I am 9 books "behind schedule". That's not too bad though right? I look at it this way, even if I don't meet my goal, I will still have read more books than many people read in a year, or even in there lifetime. You have to start somewhere. I track my goals at 43things which is a great site to track your goals on. I also track my books at Goodreads. You can see my goal here as well as the titles of the books I have read so far.

Have you heard of Influenster yet?

So, I just joined this new site called "Influenster". What happens is your social media activity, as well as your product reviews, etc, help build up your expertise and you can qualify for VoxBoxes, which are boxes of products for you to try...for free! How cool is that? I haven't qualified for one yet as I just joined, but I am busy reviewing products I have already tried and building up my Influenster Expertise Score. Interested in receiving an invite? I have two left!
