After getting a Kindle for Christmas last year, I challenged myself to read more and to see just how many books I could read in a year. I have to say… I definitely disappointed myself. Not even a book a month! I’m not trying to make excuses, but some months were definitely busier than others… and sometimes I didn’t want to spend the money to get a book…
Completed books: 7
- The Razor’s Edge
- Where’d You Go, Bernadette?
- The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle
- The Rosie Project
- I Didn’t Come Here to Make Friends
- Orange Is The New Black
- Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki
I do know that I read a whole lot while traveling — since a flight from Hawaii to anywhere is at least around five hours. Having gone on two trips in 2014, I know that’s when my reading level probably spiked — aside from January, when the challenge was fresh and I read three books!
Since I had such a poor showing last year, I’m challenging myself with a similar task: to read more than seven books this year — at least twelve! Be on the look out for the final report in 2016. Hopefully I go on more trips this year to help boost the number…
I’ll try to write some book reviews when I feel like it. Here’s where you’ll find what I’m currently reading plus a list of what I’ve read! And once again, send me your book suggestions or post them in the comments!
What are your plans for the New Year?
