I’ve set myself a challenge to read 52 books this year. I can get a bit bogged down with things like this, but I hope it’ll go well. I’ve got 78 books on my bookshelf which I haven’t read, and they don’t seem to be going anywhere fast. Maybe this will provide the kick I need to read them (in under two years).
I’d like to say I’m only going to buy new books once I’ve finished these ones, but it’s unlikely that I’ll manage to stick to that. Instead, I’m only going to buy new books if I’m ahead of schedule with my challenge. Or, you know, stuck in an airport without a book, or something.
I’ve added all 78 books to Goodreads, and they’re tracking my challenge for me, so all that needs to be done is to sit back and read.
The question is, which book to read first? When you have 78 to choose from then it can be a little tricky to make a choice. Some of them have been on my shelf so long I’m sick of looking at them. For the moment, I’m going to start with the ones with the highest rating on Goodreads, and then work my way down. Maybe that’s not the best way to do it – some may favour starting with the worst and working up, but what if the bad books put me off my pace? Gah!
