I've officially started my reading challenge today, my goal is to read 30 books in 2017. I pledged to so over at Goodreads. In addition to that [personal profile] sugar_cherries posted about this awesome reading challenge she plans to do and I decided to join in. That way I can find my next book and do both challenges at the same time.

My first book ticks the collection of short stories box and is one I've been wanting to read. My friend K got it for me as a birthday present, and gives me the perfect opportunity to go through the pile of unread books I have.

The Girl on the Fridge by Etgar Keret is a collection of his best short stories. It's less than 200 pages and each story appears to be an easy and quick read. Also, I love the cover. I first encountered Keret's work when I picked up Kneller's Happy Campers and I was pleasantly surprised when I couldn't put it down until I reached the last page. This novella was the inspiration for the movie Wristcutters: A Love Story which became one of my favorites. So I have high expectations for The Girl on the Fridge, we'll see once I finish it.

I put 30 books for my challenge too. :) I don't have you on Goodreads, do I? I'd like to add you there! This is me. (The link to your challenge just takes me to my own for whatever reason).

I've added you! :)

Yeah, I don't know why but I've been having issues with LJ and links today.

I will add you on goodreads! I also pledged 30 books for 2017. It seemed just the right amount. I just created one after seeing so many people on LJ mention Goodreads. It's such a useful website to keep track of your goals and to hold yourself accountable on goal setting. I also like being able to browse people's books to see what books I should be putting on my list.

Aaaand we're friends on Goodreads now :)

Yes, I thought the same, I think I can manage 30 books just fine. I also just recently joined and I'm loving it so far. Though I still need to make some updates.

Added you on goodreads and I'm definitely bookmarking that reading challenge as well. Always nice to have different genres of books molded together rather than just focusing on one <3 <3 Oooooh, I love the cover on that book as well!!!!!

I've added you back :)

I'm finding the challenge really useful while trying to find the next book I'm gonna read.
