2017 Reading Challenge

booksLast year my challenge was to read more non-fiction books.  I think I read more than the previous year although I didn’t review many of them on my blog.  This year I just want to read more books.  I found that I didn’t read as much as I would have liked so my challenge this year is to read 104 books.  That is two per week.  An ambitious challenge but I am going to give it a go.  So far this year, which is only up to 9th January, I have read the following books.  It is the holiday season so I have read far more than I normally would.

You can link to reviews by clicking on the blue titles.

We are now in April and the pace of my reading has slowed markedly.

It is now August and I am up to thirty-eight books.

Now we are in October and the number is fifty-two.

Now mid December and the number is 64, nowhere near 104.

I have finished the year with a total of 69 books, not quite 104 books but not too bad.
