Foodies Read Challenge 2013
Another super-exciting challenge for me!
I love books. I love food. How could I possibly not like books about food?
(Also, I'm secretly trying to get my license as a foodie. If I succeed in this challenge, will I be a certified foodie? Only the powers that be can truly know...)
I don't want to go too far overboard with challenges for next year, since I am quite new to book blogging, so I will refrain from committing to the highest level and I'll commit to the "Pastry Chef" level (4-8 books). Since this should easily cross over with a couple other challenges (Nerdy Non-Fiction challenge and Books on France challenge), I don't think that number will be too much of a problem. I'm not going to make an official goal to go beyond 8 books, since like I said, I don't want to overdo it. I'll upgrade to a higher level if I find I can't stop reading food books!
