I like to Read

Inspired by the 50 Books in One Year challenge that my friend Steven is completing, I decided to see how many titles I actually complete in a year. Unfortunately, I began this at my 156th new thing, so I am a little behind. While I don’t really think that I will complete the number of titles recommended in the challenge, I thought it would be fun to just keep a list. You see, I love lists.

I’ve forgotten the names of several books that I have read in no particular order (being 154 days into my “year”), but I’ll try to keep up from now on. And perhaps you will understand why my blogging is so far behind!
