As I started the 50 book challenge on 1st March last year, I had wanted to try and finish by January, so I could start again in the new year, but that didn’t work, as I am one of those people who reads constantly, but doesn’t read very fast.
However, considering that during this year I also graduated, went travelling around Europe for a month, and that seven of the books I read were from the Game of Thrones series which could easily be a year long challenge on their own. I will do the 50 book challenge again this year.
One of the most interesting things I found was the amount of books I got given by people who knew I was doing this. Either books they’d read and liked or had bought for me as presents as they thought I would like them. The other interesting thing was how much more I paid attention to what I was going to read next, I would actively seek out books, rather than just paying attention to the one I was reading. For the first time since I was about 14, I have had a To Read pile on my desk all year, and I miss my To Read pile!
So, this year I am starting the 50 book challenge with Frankenstein by Mary Shelley
