You didn't think I had forgotten, did you?
The year is almost up, and it is time for all of you to make guesses on where I landed in my personal challenge of reading 100 books in 2008. I am only giving you one hint...
I came within +/-15% of my goal.
Now it is up to you to guess just how many I read. Mind you, I have 28 hours or so still to go here... I might improve on my current target. Some of you may remember what inspired this personal challenge - this MSNBC article that said that 1 in 4 adults read no books last year. It's scary and sad all in one go.
So, I guess you will want a prize if you win, huh? How about this - I'll only be able to open this up to Canadian or American people, but if you win, I will send you a $20 gift certificate to the online bookseller of your choice. If a few people guess the same number I will have to have a drawing.
Please remember to include an email address in your comment so I can get in touch with you if you win. I will not accept any guesses past midnight EST on 12/31/08.
Stay tuned for Friday's post, where I will reveal the winner and dazzle you with all sorts of statistics from my snazzy Excel spreadsheet!
