For 2016, I am aiming to read 50 books in one year. It is the first time I am joining the Goodreads reading challenge and right now I am still on track. One tactic to try and stay on track, is to have books I enjoy on my shelves ready for the taking. And since I’ve become interested in YA and High Fantasy novels lately, I decided to get a few. Well… a few… Once I got going these past few months there was no stopping it. I placed an order online, bought a few books in different book stores in my hometown AND got some books from friends. I am showing you all in the video after the cut.
How many books do you think I got?
But wait! Before you go watch the video, I have some exciting book news for you. At least it made me excited when I saw this in my inbox. On March 22nd, Jack Kerouac’s debut novel, The Town and the City will be released as an e-book for the first time.
