Random Thursday: Books to Read in 2014
Time for some Random Thursday fun!
I could go through tons of photos to post pictures of the books I want to read, but that would take forever, so I'm going to do that. The best way to see what I want to read this year is to look at my Reading List. I've made a lot of progress since I started this list, but there is still 38 books on that list that I haven't gotten to yet. Eight of them were just ordered on Tuesday with the gift card I received at Christmas.
I've started my first book for the year this week. In order for me to complete every book that is currently on my reading list, I will need to ready just over 3 books a month. That doesn't seem like much to some people. I know someone who can read 3 books in a weekend. However, I am a very slow reader and typically only read during my lunch hour. I guess this could be a big goal for me. Finish this reading list in 2014 and start a new list. Taking into consideration my plans for the year, I wonder if this will be a possibility.
I can't believe how much progress I've made on classic books. I've read 9 of the 15 on the list and all that is left are the most intimidating ones. I say that because of the language and the way the book is written. Some of these are really old books, but I have faith that I can read them and maybe even enjoy them. One of my favorite classic books from 2013 was Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea. That was a big surprise!
So these are the books I plan to read in 2014. What do you want to read this year? Join in on the fun!
