2017 Book Challenges

Wednesday, January 4, 2017

In the past I have tried and failed at several book challenges.  This year I've decided to only do two (ish).  I am going to finish the 50 States Challenge and I want to participate in Around the World in 80 books which I discovered on Erin's page.  I don't plan to finish that one this year, though.  However, I do plan to read at least 15 books that take place in different countries.  I've been keeping track of books by country for as long as I've been doing the 50 states challenge, so any book I've recorded during that time will count towards my goal of 80.

I got a lot of Amazon gift cards this past Christmas and of course it was spent entirely on books for my Kindle.  I've bought a lot of books for these challenges and I'm super excited to read some of them - others were a bit of a gamble but I'm interested to see how they turn out.
