    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?

    I have always wanted to do this. I always do the goodreads book challenge. I am going try to read 50 books this year. So far, I have only read one.

    I would love to, but it's hard to budget time with school and stuff. So far this year I've read "Tales of the Jazz Age" by F. Scott Fitzgerald. I'm going to try and get a reading list together this month.

    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.
