But You Don't Have to Take My Word For It.*

Phoblog's friend Class Maledictorian has accepted the 50 Book Challenge. As I pack up a basket full of shiny new books - some of which were acquired this Christmas, too many of which were acquired during Christmases past and trucked down here in hopes that I'd read them - it seems like a good idea to hop on the 2005 literacy wagon myself.

There are some rules out there, but I'd say it's a personal choice kinda thing. What books count? Most anything, really. I plan on first attacking the stack of biographies I've gathered (Adams, Franklin, Truman, LBJ - all of 'em, Brown (Willie), Burton (Phil)). I won't count "Understanding Securities Regulation" toward my tally, promise.

I don't know if I'll actually hit the goal. But it will be fun to try . . . . Recommendations welcome, natch.

*quick - identify that reference!
