Books are amongst my favorite possessions. A lot of my favorite memories come from books. Books have always been a constant companion.....but over the past few years, as I have raised small children and began to scrapbook more, my time spent reading has went down. I still read, but I move slowly and sporadically through books.

This makes me a little sad. I imagine that as my children get older and I sleep better, I will have more room in my life to devote to reading again, but I don't really want to wait for this--I want to read more now. So, enter the 2015 Popsugar Reading Challenge. The challenge is to read 50 books in one year, with each book coming from one of fifty categories. Sounds fun and frankly, nothing quite motivates me like checking things off on a list ;). 

Of course, I had to scrapbook this.....

2015 Read
2015 Read 2
2015 Read 3

How about you? Are you a book worm, or not? When do you read? I find myself reading the most while waiting to pick up my son from school or practice because the girls are usually occupied and locked into their carseats. Reading before bed is usually not an option because I am so darn tired and just want to go to sleep. I'd like to set up a designated daily quiet/reading time for the girls and I, but I'm not quite sure if my two year old would cooperate. Will have to work on some ideas if I am going to make the 50 books happen!
