Louise Right, so last time I counted, I owned more than 1000 paper books and 100-200 audiobooks and e-books that were unread. It's probably more now, so for this challenge I want to read/listen to 48 printed books & audiobooks in 2016.

Louise I'll place a ✔ and a date, when I finish a book.

Amy (amybf) | 41 comments You're good! I can't plan out a list of books to read. Every time I try to do that, I find myself dragging my feet on reading the books on my list. It's like I resent being told what to read -- even when it's me telling myself! I'm definitely a mood reader. Good luck with your list--and your mountain! I'll be climbing alongside you. Perhaps we can share oxygen. ;)


message 5: by Jessika (new)

Jessika (jessika_56) I would love to do Steelheart as a buddy read! Sanderson is one of my favorite authors. Let me know when you plan on reading it!


message 6: by Louise (new)

Louise I'll probably end up changing some of them along the way Amy, I usually do :-) Feel free to share my oxygen and coffee anytime!

Let's do that Jessika - I haven't read anything by him yet, but I've been meaning to for a while. When will suit you?


message 7: by Jessika (new)

Jessika (jessika_56) Anytime Louise, I don't have a set reading schedule
