LindaH | 153 comments I want to read 50 books. I have a shelf, “2018 or Bust”, which is made up of books from my TBR list and recommendations.

I want to participate in lots of challenges. I will have to make my Pre-Decideds fit with all the Challenges I can — another challenge!

One of my goals in 2018 is to read A History of the English Speaking Peoples, 4 Vols . I’m just finishing Vol 1. I’m also interested in reading British authors of the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries. Hmm, this sounds like a theme. I think I’ll throw in some Shakespeare.

I’m just a girl from a nowhere town in Southern California, who wound up editing books for young children in New York City, finally catching up.
