This post hasn't been updated in over 3 years.

I was optimistic, and decided to set myself some reading goals for 2011:

But as you may have gleaned from my excuses in Nov 2011, it looked like I was failing the challenge!

The records say:

To Be Honest

This post hasn't been updated in over 3 years.

Ok, my attempts at the book challenges this year (12 e-books in 2011, Unfinished Books 2011) has been absymal.

I think my total reading is still consistent with the past few years. It just seems worse this year as I had set myself actual targets, a la the book challenges, and am falling far short! (1 out of 12 e-books, 2 out of 6 “unfinished” books)

I’m not going to bore you with the old excuse, “I didn’t have time to read”.

i almost gave up on e-books

I give up on e-books.

I was failing rather miserably at the e-Book a Month Challenge. (See my posts from January and February. I didn’t even bother writing about it for March and April.) But we’re not yet halfway through the year, and there is hope yet.

Because I got an iPad.

I’m gonna take it slow and start with “Pride and Prejudice”, Jane Austen. It’s okay to re-read things, right? 😀

My February failed, but I think I might rethink my strategy.

Option 1: Change e-Book Reader

As previously mentioned, my e-book reader is BooksInMyPhone, a Java app.

I think I am finding it difficult to read long books on it: Read more…

e-Book a Month: Jan 2011… Missing!

Excerpt from Chapter 2, The Horse-Stealers and Other Stories

Excerpt from Chapter 2, The Horse-Stealers and Other Stories

I said I’d do it. I said, “Bring it on”.

However, my e-Book review for January 2011 is… missing!

I thought I’d finish “The Horse-Stealers and Other Stories” by Anton Pavlovich Chekhov by the end of the month, but apparently not 🙁 I am still on Chapter 2!

Should I get a shorter e-Book to read? </cop out>

I will try my best, and update accordingly. Really! 🙁
