Hi!

I hope you are all having a wonderful, relaxing holiday! January 1st brings us a new year, new resolutions, and of course, a brand new start to the 50 Book Pledge. That’s right, all of our counting officially starts back at 1.

Are you taking the pledge this year with us?

Have no idea what I’m talking about? We officially took the #50BookPledge for the first time last year, vowing to make reading a priority in 2011. Here, Cory explains why. Basically, we pledged to read 50 books in 2011, or roughly a book a week. Now, 50 really was just a random number. The real reason we wanted to take the pledge was to track our reading progress over a year, and really make an effort to make reading a bigger part of our lives.

Plus, it gave us the chance to talk books with fellow pledge-rs throughout the year!

How will 2012′s #50BookPledge be different? Well, we have plenty of new ideas and will share them with you later this week! My big goal is to have a big group book pick, a kind of #50BookPledge book club, so that we have one book that we can all discuss. But for now, we have a brand new badge to share with you:

So, are you taking the #50BookPledge with us??

Let us know below, or tweet to us #50BookPledge.

Then, it’s officially time to start Book 1!

    [...] The 50 Book Pledge - please click here to find out more about it. Basically, this challenge is to read 50 books in one year. I’m starting with LOTR’s The Fellowship Of The Ring. I’ve read The Lord Of The Rings trilogy before, but it was a while ago. So now I’m reading through it again. [...]

    I took the 50 Book Pledge in 2011 and was successful.  I read about 58 books. The positive feedback and encouragement I received from Savvy Reader when I posted on Twitter was great.
    I like the idea of a “book pick”.

    I have read 4 books and am half way through book 5. Doesn’t sound like very many, but I am also in school so I don’t get a lot of free time to read – most of it’s spent doing homework.

    I’m on book #24 and # 25 – I tend to read more than one at a time.  I don’t think I’ll have a problem reaching the goal of 50 books for a year.  It’s my first time taking the 50 books in a year pledge – but since I’m “book obsessed!” (I own 4 e-readers) I didn’t think it would be hard. :)  I also have an unfair advantage as I’m not a student (I’m 53) and I’m currently not working – so I do have lots of time.  I don’t watch TV and I LOVE to read!!!!
