The deal is this: To participate in Cannonball Read II, I must have a blog. So here we are.
I have actually signed on for what I have dubbed the Half Cannonball, 26 books in a year, which seems potentially doable. (As I teach my students, it's important for your goals to be achievable.) The Cannonball Read also entails writing reviews of the books, so we'll see how successful I am at actually doing those.
Now that I have a blog, of course, it's entirely possible that other subjects will end up in my posts.
