the year in books :: January {the link up}

the year in books :: circle of pine trees blog

I’m excited that so many of you would like to join in with me for the Year in Books project!

Here’s how it works…

The aim is to read a book a month during 2014.

At the start of the month, let’s blog the book that we are planning to read in the month ahead. If we feel inspired to, we could also write a little about the previous month’s book. Not a review, as such, ย just some thoughts: a recommendation (or otherwise!) for others who might be thinking of reading it.

It’s not a traditional book club, so we don’t have to all read the same book (although I will let you know each of my books a month in advance, in case anyone feels in need of a suggestion). This is just about trying to ensure that we make space for reading in our busy lives, and hopefully a way to discover more lovely books (and lovely bibliophiles). You don’t have to just read novels, it can be poetry, non fiction, biography- whatever you fancy!

If you would prefer to share your book choices over on Instagram, that would also be great, please use the hashtag #theyearinbooks so that we can find your posts. I’ve also set up a Pinterest board for us, so do let me know in the comments if you would like me to add you as a pinner.

If, like me, you fancy joining Goodreads to help you to keep track of your books during the year, I have started a group for us: somewhere that we can compile the books that we are reading, and even chat about them if we want to. You can find the group here and you are welcome join whether or not you have a blog of your own.

Finally, I’ve created a blog button for the link up. If you would like one to display on your blog then you can grab the code over in the sidebar.

So, let’s get started! I look forward to seeing your book choice for January- please add your link below.

Thank you, and enjoy those quiet moments of reading. x
