2017 Books

2017 Books

 

For the past few years, I have made a yearly goal to read more than the previous year.

Once again, I took on this challenge with a twist - to both read and quit as many books as I please. You can read a little bit more about my reading methods on this previous blog post.

Below is the list of my completed reads, but I would also like to highlight that I checked out over 100 books from my local library over the course of the last year.

Out of the 100+ books that I checked out and from my own collection, I only read 45 those books. 

I quit a lot of books this year. Without giving myself the permission to quit books, I probably would've never have completed and/or found all of the 45 books I really enjoyed this year.

Here's to challenging yourself to larger goals, and the courage to quit. 

Hope your 2018 is filled with beautiful reads.
