Announcing the "XBooksPact" | April 2015 to December 2015

So, I'm seeing a lot of buzz on social media around the ‪#‎100SareePact‬ .  For those who don't know, it is a promise to wear sarees a 100 times in 2015 and share the pictures along with the stories of the sarees.. To know more, click here or read a write-up at Huffingtonpost. This is indeed a wonderful initiative by Anju Maudgal Kadam and Ally Matthan; and also goes to show the power of an idea and the power of social media

I'm loving the pictures and stories of ladies in sarees. And hope the #100SareePact gets more women to flaunt their saris!

However, I don't know if I'm ready for this pact. But in the spirit of making a pact and trying to revive something - I surely want to read more this year.. So I'm thinking I should do a ‪#‎20BooksPact‬ from 1 April 2015 to 31 Dec 2015.. It can be any book - free / paid, eBook or Print.. Whatever.. Just an attempt to commit to reading more books this year..

I shared this as a FaceBook update yesterday and a lot of "book loving" friends felt 20 was too less, and many already finished 20 books in past 3 month! Wow! So, I decided to make it the 2015 "XBooksPact"; where X is any number of books you choose to read..

Keen on making a pact? Here's how it works.
Step 1 : Define the number of books you want to read. So it may be 5 or 200! Whatever works for you! That is your 2015 Book Pact
Step 2 : Join the FaceBook Community here
Step 3 : Share your commitment on the number of books you want to read
Step 4:  Let the group know what book you are reading, and read your book :)
Step 5: If you want to recommend the book to others, let the community know
Step 6: Get others to join the community

Enjoy Reading!!
On that note, Happy Reading!

PS: The 1st book I'm reading is a parenting related book.. Any guesses what the title is????
