So which, out of the multitude offered, did I settle on?
A quirky foodie book challenge and a women authors of science fiction bookclub. Both of which should enhance not interfere with my normal reading habits. I'm tickled pink because these two are ideal for me-- and Tracy, my favorite co-blogger, decided to join the sci-fi book club too which doubles the fun!
Last week, I determined to finally post about my foodie/sci-fi fetish and officially announce my participation in these two events, because two is absolutely plenty--- BUT wouldn't you know it--- The Serendipity Fairy paid another visit to Mrs. BG!
As I was minding my own bloggy business, this perfectly darling little challenge caught my eye: Read to Me Picture Book Challenge at There's A Book!
|Isn't this the sweetest little badge?|
|And isn't this cute cute cute?!|
Picture books have never been neglected here at Mrs. BG.
Recalling that my favorite co-bloggers, DeLynne and Leslie, have both posted here, here and here about picture books, I hatched a devious plot to ensnare them into the picture book challenge. But they jumped right on board so I didn't need to cajole much less twist any arms. Have I mentioned how terrific my co-bloggers are?
We will aim for the "Watering" level of 36 books. Although we read hundreds of picture books between us annually (especially Leslie since she has three kiddos of various ages), it would be detrimental to our sanity to post about them all. Since our children will be participating with us, the focus will mainly be on their favorites. Hopefully, we won't exhaust their interest or put them completely off reading and blogging!
How exciting! Our first participation in a challenge!
Can't believe the announcement and sign up is complete! That wasn't so bad--- One of these days, I may even settle my commitment issues and officially announce my participation in the foodie book challenge-- sometime before December 2011, I hope.
