2017 Reading Challenge

2017 Reading Challenge

Last year’s reading challenge included a long list of books I wasn’t interested in reading. I was only four books short of meeting my 20-book challenge, but my greater disappointment was the number of books I continued to read even though I wasn’t enjoying them. Not only do I want to complete this year’s reading list, but I’d like to enjoy reading. This means accepting when to put a book down and move on to the next.

So here’s to my 2017 reading challenge, full of satire, self-development, inspirational pieces, comic books, memoirs, and loads of fiction.
