I’m really pleased by how many people want to join in with Project 24, or their own variants on it. Sure, I feel a little guilty about biting the publishing hand that feeds me – but if this Project 24 is anything like my previous one, I’ll end up buying lots of books as presents, just to feel the excitement of buying books. Do I sound like an addict right now?
It’s all to read books from my own shelves – but I also want to read books people recommend. How to get around this? WELL – I came up with the idea of asking people to recommend books I already own. Wanna help?
You can see all the books I own in my LibraryThing catalogue (and you can access that whether or not you have a LibraryThing account). I’ve tagged all the books I’ve read with the ingenious tag ‘read’ – see what I did there? – so anything not tagged is up for grabs.
I’d love to read 10 books that people recommend – it could be ones you’ve read and loved, or ones you’re curious to read about – but if I don’t get ten picks then I’ll just read and review however many suggestions I get. By the end of 2017, let’s say.
Is this fun? Is this self-indulgent? Who knows – but I always enjoy looking at other people’s collections, virtual or otherwise, so… have at!
