A few years ago I complained that academic study had wiped out my life-long passion for reading. As 2015 draws to a close, I can honestly say - I'm cured. I've managed to read 43 books since January and am proud of the variety of genres selected; I've definietly avoided my old trick of sticking to a handful of beloved authors.
This simple app has helped turned about my reading mind-set. Linking up with other readers in a specific book group has helped to vary my monthly read and initiated my 'War and Peace' challenge, which I'll finish reading this Summer.
It's surprising how many titles you intend to read and for how many years only to remain on the shelf untouched. Thanks to the book group many of mine have now been dusted off and polished off allowing space for others.
My reading challenge for 2016 is to complete the alphabet of author names, alongside my W&P challenge. I've got a funny feeling I may struggle on certain letters but hey, let's give it a go!
