52 books in 52 weeks
For this year I've decided to start reading again, something that has been neglected over the past few years of my life. I remembered a friend of mine doing this 52 in 52 challenge when we were at school and so have decided to give it a try!
So far I'm three books down. I'm currently reading Day of the Triffids by John Wyndham and Battle Magic by Tamora Pierce. I'm also listening to the audiobook of Dr No by Ian Fleming (audiobooks count in my challenge as long as they are unabridged).
Completed books are:
The No.1 Ladies Detective Agency - Alexander McCall Smith
A Study in Scarlet - Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
Mort - Terry Pratchett
Has anyone else ever done this challenge? Are any of you attempting it now?Name lover & Engaged to a wonderful man

I'm in grad school, so I don't get to read a lot for pleasure. That said...
So far this year I've read:
Longbourn by Jo Baker
Hyperbole and a Half by Allie Brosh
Discovery of Witches and Shadow of Night by Deborah Harkness
and I'm working on (slowly):
Bleeding Edge by Thomas Pynchon and Hologram for the King by Dave Eggers.
My husband is working his way through all of the Bond books! I haven't read them, but he seems to like them.
Goodreads is excellent for keeping track of the books you've read. They even have a challenge feature and I love all of the user lists. I also love Novelist for book recommendations. If your library subscribes to it, all you need is your card number to log in. If there's a book you like and want to find more like it, Novelist will help you find "read-alikes." If you don't have a library card, there's bookbrowse.com. They have limited functionality if you don't subscribe, but they're good for a few recommendations.Under construction...
