2014 reading challenge and new follower

I promised myself that I would welcome every new member that joins Kouisse's Korner as a follower via Google. Bienvenue to Stephanie from Not Entirely Perfect!! Stephanie recently wrote a post on planners that I just loved reading. Thanks for joining and being my 9th follower. 

There is no secret that I love to read. I actually prefer reading than watching television or a movie. I was 19 years old when I read my first real book ~  Family Album by Danielle Steel. I had never heard of Danielle Steel back then and remember devouring and collecting all of her books during my 20's. I only started discovering other authors in my 30's (so glad that I saw the light and ditched Danielle Steel). And since then, I have been hooked to the best pastime ever.

I love to challenge myself to reading goals.  Last year's reading goal was 40 books but I only read 30 books (and hopefully one day it will be 52 books).  You can find my list of books here.  I am challenging myself again this year to read 40 books.  I love to keep track of the books I read in a small green notepad that I have had for years but recently I have been using Goodreads and love it. Goodreads is the largest site for readers and recommendations in the world. If you are a member of Goodreads please do not hesitate to add me as your friend (please click here).

Last night I finished (book 1 of 40) reading Souvenirs de la Banlieue - les jumeaux". It is the 6th and last book of a French Canadian series from Rosette Laberge. 

Have you set a reading challenge for 2014??


  1. I am very happy to be here :) Thank you for stopping by so I could get to know you!
    I think I signed up for GoodReads, but I never did anything past that. I really would like to read more this year, I definitely haven't been doing enough of that.

  2. I should definitely read more. I don't read enough!

  3. I keep hearing about goodreads but I've never actually checked them out... I may have to change that soon! Seems like people LOVE it!

  4. I try to read as much as I can and just joined Goodreads although haven't really "used" it yet.

  5. Good luck with your goal! I am hoping to reach mine this year too. I better get reading if I am going to do it. :)
