Reading Presently

An update on my reading project for next year - the one where I read 25 (or maybe 50, depending on how it goes) books that I've received as gifts - I was throwing around some names on Twitter and decided upon Reading Presently.

I was wondering if there were any people who enjoyed making badges for projects?  If so, and you fancy making one for me and anyone else who wants to do this, let me know in the comments!  In fact, let's make it a competition!  (If more than one person wants to, that is...)

Comment, and then email me your Reading Presently badge - it just has to feature those words, the rest is up to you - and in a week or two I'll declare a winner - with some sort of bookish prize!  (Clue: it'll probably be a book.)

  1. I'm no good with badges, but I'm thinking of joining in the project. I haven't been counting gift books in the grand TBR totals, but I haven't been reading them either.

  2. Any format or size restrictions?

    1. Sorry not to reply to this before - I'm now back in Oxford. And no restrictions, I suppose, although not in too esoteric a format! As long as I can open it and upload it to a blog post, that's fine.

  3. Whatever talent I have for making badges is contingent on pictures and typography. I think for this challenge the badge probably needs someone with some actual graphics expertise. Otherwise I would be all over it. And I don't really let people give me books so I can't even participate.

    1. I wasn't expecting anything more than pictures and typography, Thomas, and I know you make lovely badges - so feel free to have a go if you want to!

    1. I see some in my inbox! When I've got around to looking through inbox properly, I'll have a gander :)

Thanks so much for taking the time to comment - my favourite part of blogging is reading your comments!

Annoyingly, Blogger often messes up with comments... try refreshing, or commenting Anonymously (add your name in, though!) or using Firefox/Chrome instead of Internet Explorer. (Ctrl+c your comment first!)

Failing everything, email me: simondavidthomas[at]yahoo.co.uk - or just email me anyway :)

Thanks!
