Project:50Leaves is a personal project that aims to bring back a love of reading to people who are willing to bring the love back. At first, it was an aim to read at least 50 books in a year. On its second year, it has now realized that its more of trying to read and enjoy as many books as possible in a year.
The basic point of the project is to go back to a love of reading, moving away from school and work requirements. It’s about setting aside time to read books that we love reading, amidst the stressful things in life.
How to join:
i. Leave a page/entry dedicated simply to this project. Entitle it 50Leaves.
ii. On that page/entry write down (in numerical form) A title of the book/s you are reading B author of the book you are reading C a vague idea of the date you finished the book (doesn’t need to be specific, could be just the month, or could be down to the exact date). If the book you are reading gets finished kindly put on bold the entire line.
1. The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown (finished around April)
2. Angels and Demons by Dan Brown
iii. Once you’ve written a page and followed at least A and B of the previous number, please don’t forget to link to this specific page on your blog (and entitle it as Project:50Leaves) and please don’t forget to leave a comment below with your name and link url to your 50Leaves blog entry/page.
iv. At the end of the year, leave a tally at the end of the list saying how many books you’ve finished. It would be easy to count since the books you’ve read will be in bold.
v. Extra bonus. If like me, you like to write reviews, you can choose to do so. Write your reviews on a separate blog entry then link to them via your 50Leaves list. Just please remember to keep your page neat and clean.
vi. P.S. The manner in which you want to make the list is optional. Haha. I think I made it too complicated. As long as you have the name and author of the book, and as long as you (in some way) inform people which books you are already done with, then any format is acceptable. 🙂 Thanks.
Let’s start the year of with a productive dream! Cheers!
