Book Business Tuesday: The fiftyfifty.me challenge
Fifty books. Fifty movies. One year. One you. Over the weekend I signed on to the fiftyfifty.me challenge of reading 50 books and watching 50 movies in 2013. I usually average about 30 books a year (that I keep track of here on the blog) and thought it would be fun to try to up that number this year and also to keep better track of the movies I watch.
The challenge comes with a well-designed web site where you can keep track of your lists and includes great community components for sharing book and movie recommendations. I'm off to a strong start with three books and three movies under my belt.
Here are a few great resources to help with the challenge:
Goodreads: Keep track of what you're reading, what you want to read, recommendations from other users/readers and more.
What should I read next? Exactly what it sounds like: Type in the name of a book you like and the site will generate a list of recommendations.
The New York Times bestsellers list
National Book Award winners
How about you? Wouldn't you like to join in the fun?
