The Sunday Post/Sunday Salon: Blog News/Mid Year Recap

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~ It's a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.

Before I share blog news, I wanna share something else. I have returned to reading with a vengeance after nine months. I thought why not set myself a challenge. I have decided to re-read all the 33 albums of The Adventures of Asterix in two weeks, starting July 1, 2013. I barely remember some of the albums. I am going to have fun reading the series! No one can get enough of the comics. If you wanna join, you are welcome to do so. You don't have to read all the albums but you have to read at least 5. I think that is not a big deal. If you know anyone who loves graphic novels and can do this challenge, please pass it on!

I don't know how to create a button. If anyone helps, I am not averse to it!

And if we are into graphic novels, if you know any e-graphic site, do let me know know. You can gift me pdf files of the same.


Getting back to blog news, I posted the following on my blog last week:

I am doing this mid-year post, just to remind myself how less I have read in the last 6 months. Yet it is a little better in past few days. I am catching up. I think I will be able to read 50 books! Previously I was thinking in terms of being able to read only 12 books this year!!!

Looks like a busy week. I have not heard of the Asterix Series, so I will have to do a bit of research. Best of luck with your challenge.

I loved the Asterix books, which I discovered in high school. They were both fun and funny. I think the first one I found was actually in Latin. Unfortunately, our library only had a few of the titles (in English), so I never read them all. Enjoy your challenge! And thanks for stopping by yesterday.

Yay. Back to reading. Sometimes we just need a break and other times we need a breakthrough. I don't know how to make buttons either. Wish I did.
