50 Books Challenge of 2015

GoodReads Challenge

Unless training for a race, I’m not good about keeping these sorts of goals, but this one has to do with books so it feels doable. I’m taking on the challenge to read 50 books this year. This is where I’ll keep my list.

The first book I started just after Christmas and prior to New Years, and whether or not that breaks the rule, I don’t know. It’s nearly 1,200 pages, so by damn I’m counting it.
