30 Day Book List

I decided to do one of the 30 Day Book Challenges that I had seen on many blogs.  In my search for a list to go through, I found 4 different ones, so I made my own by combining questions from each of the lists I found as well as a few of my own.  (My original posts are here and here).  On this page I’ll be tracking each day of the list and giving links to each individual post.

  1. Favorite book or series – the Mistborn Trilogy by Brandon Sanderson

So there is my 30 day book list.  I started the list September 20th 2011 and I finished it October 19th 2011.  Obviously this list is heavily influenced by the books that I have read recently.  I think it would be really interesting to come back in a year or two and go through this list again and see how much my thoughts have changed after reading more books.  Who knows, I’ll think about it.
