“A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies”


I hate New Year’s Resolutions. They create a lot of pressure and expectation, and honestly I never live up to it. I struggle to stick with diets and work out routines.  But last year, I made a resolution I thought I would for sure be able to stick with. I challenged myself to read 52 new books for the year (one a week). I have always loved to read, but I thought with a full time job, a husband and a toddler, this would be a struggle for me. To my surprise, I hit 52 books before the end of June. So I challenged myself further – read 100 books before the end of the year. By December 31st, I had read 134 new books.

One of the hardest parts of this challenge is to read a NEW book. One I have never read before ( I could read the Harry Potter series over and over again).

This year, I want to surpass that incredible achievement. The goal for 2017 is 150 books! We are a month into the year and I have already read 12 books. I have been using Kindle Unlimited (since books can get expensive!) and have loved it so far. What books are you reading? What is your favorite book?
