Beg, Borrow or Steal

I was thinking about Nat and thinking about my friend, Megan. Megan visited me tonight, and we talked a lot about books. I sent her away with Jesus Freaks and my copy of Blue Like Jazz. She promised me her copies of The End of Religion, Girl Soldier and Nine Parts of Desire. Recently, Megan mentioned that she had followed a link from one of my notes to Nattie's website and was touched by what she read there. So, with the two of them on my mind, here is my challenge to you:

Read a book that is not yours or a book that someone has given to you. Not a book they gave you because you wanted it, but a book they gave you because THEY loved it and wanted to share it with you. A book someone suggested to you (even if you have to buy the actual copy you read) is what I am getting at.

Nat was always reviewing the books she read and picking up books we thought she would like. We sent each other books all the time, and I am sure I am not the only one she traded volumes with. So, this is the Beg, Borrow or Steal Challenge (though, stealing isn't good, okay?).

Pick one book for this challenge and read it in January. Easy peasy, right?

Send me links for the sidebar if you want to be linked here. I will take down the Babysteps challenge list after Jan 1st and put up the Beg, Borrow or Steal list. As usual, post any reviews in the comments and I will create a post for those links.

Happy New Year!
