2016 | 50 Book Pledge

One of my challenges for 2016 was to read 50 books in 52 weeks and I reached that goal. I read a total of 67 books in 52 weeks. Not only was it my goal to read 50 books in 2016 but to also read as diversely as possible, which I did an alright job in attaining. I’m continuing on with both of these reading goals in 2017 and hoping to do even better than I did in 2016.
