Oh My God! Exactly why I want to read it :D

I'm planning to read it super early in the year though like January early. I'm actually reading Peter Pan And Wendy. Peter Pan/Peter Pan and Wendy seem to be the same thing so it should be fine. I'll read Jane Eyre whenever.

How long is your to-read list??

Alison G. (agriff22) | 1083 comments i can do january and change my around the world books a little. Let me know when u start. And my to-read list is so long I don't even think I will be able to get through it in my lifetime. I need to quit reading other peoples threads and getting ideas for books!


message 8: by Adriana (new)

Adriana | 3888 comments I'd love to start the second week of January and to be able to finish by at most the last day of January. Is that alright with you?

I just didn't expect your to-read list to be so long! I thought my 1,300 and something to-read books was a lot (;

Alison G. (agriff22) | 1083 comments Yeah it is. I get carried away! lol That time works for me.


message 10: by Kathryn (new)

Kathryn | 581 comments You've got some good books there, Alison!! It's like a "How many have you read?" list!! Are you going to get through all of them in 2014? Do you know how many there are?!

I was looking at the chapters and pages online and it's actually shorter than I thought lol. Around 17 chapters but around 150 pages. So it's probably better to do it one week and just like 3 chapters a day?? - Peter Pan


message 13: by Alison (new)

Alison G. (agriff22) | 1083 comments I can do that! It works for me. Just let me know when you wanna start. We still planning the 2nd week of January?


message 14: by Adriana (last edited Dec 17, 2013 01:46PM) (new)

Adriana | 3888 comments Yes! Where would we discuss it though? I guess we will just message each other (:

Alison G. (agriff22) | 1083 comments I am going back to school in may i think so when i figure out my books i will be putting them on here too. It might halt me from reading a lot of books for fun with challenge but i will still try to continue them too when i can.


Canadian Dragon  | 879 comments What are you going to school for ??


message 36: by Alison (new)

Alison G. (agriff22) | 1083 comments either medical coding certificate, health science or health care administration. I havent decided exactly what yet lol! I think im leaning towards getting the certifcate, getting certified, getting a job and then getting the bachelors in either of those other 2 after i get money saved up.

Good luck, Alison! Does the health science degree mean you work as a medical technologist? That's what I did here in Australia (and a little while overseas) before I went back to study nutrition and dietetics. And a friend who lives nearby (who also worked in the lab for a while) went back to uni so she can now work as a coder!


message 38: by Alison (new)

Alison G. (agriff22) | 1083 comments not medical technologist. I actually don't know exactly everything I can do with it. I want to be a coder but if that doesn't happen right away I'm hoping I can get a secretary job with the health science degree.


Canadian Dragon  | 879 comments Sounds interesting keep us posted :)

Alison G. (agriff22) | 1083 comments I decided to do my medical billing and coding certificate. It will take around a year and I start May 14th. I will find out my classes this week.

Alison G. (agriff22) | 1083 comments I'm still gonna try Jodi!! I am gonna do my best to get quite a few books done before I start. Hopefully I will still be reading, but I might be making mass updates. lol

Alison G. (agriff22) | 1083 comments Im trying to get all the books that I have on my nightstand and already started done before I start school in 3 weeks. I dont know if it's gonna happen! I am in the middle of 3 right now and I have 3 more on my nightstand to read. Reading is just tiring me out. I think I have set my challenges too high. Especially with me going back to school. But I am going to try my hardest!!!

Not sure about Alison, but I can recommend this one - I've probably read it about 10 times and it's a lovely read. I always take something else away from it!


message 48: by Alison (new)

Alison G. (agriff22) | 1083 comments brianna- it was good but not my kind of book. It was written good in a sweet, innocent way. If u have read the Little House on the prairie books and liked them, you should like Anne of Green Gables.
