This year I started the WHERE Are You Reading Challenge and I have already been having a lot of fun with it. The idea was to just read what you are planning to read anyway – and just see where in the world you are reading. I offered prizes as you got to the end of the year if you were able to read in each of the 50 states, and bonus entries and prizes for those who read outside the states. You can find all details here.
Each month, I would like to recap where we have been and how this challenge is going for us. Here is where I am for the month of January 2011:
I have read 11 books so far in January, and listened to 6 audio. On my Reading Map they have landed:
One unknown (Clementine – friend Of The Week!)
What I have found most exciting is that all of these places I have landed have been unintentional! It is really for to see where they land on the map and how many areas I have already covered!
For those of you participating in the WHERE Are you reading challenge, please feel free to create a monthly wrap-up post and link it here if you would like. I plan to do this each month. For those of you who are not connected to this challenge, it is not too late to start your map and join in! Challenge details here.

And finally… I have come to really enjoy Alyce’s (At Home With Books) Saturday Snapshot. It’s a fun weekly meme she has created of just random pictures that mean something and anyone can join in. I love seeing what she posts weekly and want to start participating when I can. Saying that, here is my Saturday Snapshot:
This is a picture of a bike ride I was participating in my with my cousin Jarrod and his friend Brian in 2009. The winters in Minnesota are LONG and I anxiously am awaiting when I can bike again this year.
