Louize has completed the 2013 Reading Challenge
Wow, what a year 2013 had been for me! There is so much to tell, but, of course, I don’t want to bore you with the details. Let us take a look back at what I've read for the last 12 months instead, shall we?
In the beginning of 2013, I've challenged myself to read 75 books. I am very happy to share with you that I've read 81 books. It was a mix collection; I've read from children books, novellas, to some chunkster novels. In total, I've read 21,960 pages, compared to last year’s 20,062. I've joined 6 buddy reads, and they were the most interesting by far. Also, I've read all the TFG F2F voted books for 2013.
There is a case-full of unread books that I need to tackle, and it would be very regrettable not to read them before we fully migrate to the other side of the world. So for 2014, I believe I'll challenge myself into reading 70 full-length novels only, meaning no novellas or children's picture books . I am considering to read a collection (or author) per month. This will be a trial and error process, so let’s see which will work best. But definitely, I intend to finish all those printed copies I have in that bookcase.
Another year of reading challenge, I am excited to read your plans too. Cheers!
