Every year for the past two years, I have tried to take the pledge to read fifty books in one calendar year. This is the first year that I won’t be enrolled in school and will have more time to enjoy my leisure reading. I hope to complete the pledge by December 31, 2013.

Edit: It’s the start of the new year – and I have in fact, completed the 50 book pledge this year! I’m indeed proud of myself, but want to aim higher for 2014. Thank you everyone for their support and recommendations of new reads. I want to add more ‘meaty’ books for next year, so stay tuned! 🙂
