Books, Books, More Books ...& a Contest



I've never done it before, taken a picture of my TBR pile that's on top of my nightstand. Well on Sunday I did it and WOW!! There are 2 really thick books in that pile.


Then I was possessed to take another picture of the books that are in my nightstand just waiting to be put on top of my nightstand...

Quite a lot of books, eh? So in order to make this more than just a random musing, I thought it would be fun if I made a contest out of it. So, whomever picks the closest or the correct date for me to finish all these books will get a prize. What is the prize you asked? Well what do book lovers love....yup a gift card to either Barnes and Noble or Borders for $20.

I thought I would help you out though by giving you some hints on my life and my reading habits:

  • Married with 2 children under 4 and work a full time job

  • I try to read at lunch, when my job allows

  • I am leaving for vacation in 10 days; vacation will include a 3.5 hour flight both ways, but with a 3.5 year old, and will last 6 days

  • I'm currently reading my 9th book of 2009

  • I read 55 books in 2008

So leave your guess/estimate for my completion date of the 17 books pictured. Guesstimates need to be posted by Monday March 16th to be eligible.

I am going to guess May 8! Good Luck! What a fun contest! I think it would be fun to do even without the prize!! :)

My original guess was July 14th, however, since you do have a couple of thick ones, I'm going to go with July 21st!

Good Luck!

Have a great vacation!
