I'm getting close to my 26 book goal! It's been fun doing this challenge. I've done more reading than I have in years. Time is running out a little bit - hope I read the rest before the year is up, but we shall see. The holidays are so busy!

For book 20, a book "everyone" has read but you, I chose Yes Please by Amy Pohler. It was funny but I just couldn't get into it. It's a collection of short essays so it's something you can pick up and put down any time though.

I started Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert. It really doesn't fit into any of the categories... so I'm changing the criteria for book 19 to "a book that teaches you something". That works for me! This book is pretty neat - she discusses inspiration, finding your creative flow, how to be in the moment and recognize those moments of pure genius.

I love reading each and every comment! Be sure to keep up with me on Instagram, Pinterest, and Facebook!


  1. You are so close Emily and I would say 19 would have been hard for me as well. I pretty much read whatever we were given in school, except those boring history books.

    1. Yeah I definitely didn't skip any reading assignments in school!

  2. Wonderful how your progressing with the list ! I bombed out in October when the new TV season got into play and I ended up watching more TV. Maybe after the holidays I can start the list again :) It sure was fun trying though :)


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment - I love reading all of them!
