National Novel Reading Month

I read my fair share of newspapers, magazines, and, of course, blogs and yet I felt like something was missing. What I needed was a real challenge, something to really exercise those flabby eye muscles. Then I heard about National Novel Reading Month, better known as NaNoReaMo. It's where ordinary people like you and me commit to reading a novel during the month of November. That's right, a whole novel! If that sounds impossible to you (and I'm sure it does), all they really ask is that you read 50,000 words. Sure, it's a daunting task, but it sounds like a great idea—and I wanted a challenge, didn't I? I only have one problem: an entire week has gone by, and I haven't selected my novel yet. Yikes!
