I absolutely love books and reading but over the past few years I really haven’t read as much as I would like so this year my new years resolution is to read more. I asked on twitter what is a realistic amount of books to challenge myself to read this year 52 or 100 and the majority voted for 52, one book a week. As I am a fast reader and have plenty of time on my hands at the moment as I am currently off work due to health issues I think this is actually a very doable target.
I shall be listing all 52 books here as I finish them and will even be turning my hand at writing reviews of them.
*Affiliate Link – I also want to try to shop more locally this year and not give all my money to amazon, which along with charity shops is usually where I purchase my books, so I have joined the affiliate programme for Bookshop.org a fantastic website set up at the beginning of the pandemic, who’s mission is to support local independent bookshops by giving over 75% of their profit margin back to store, publications and authors, so please do check out my online Bookshop here, Where I will list all 52 books read this year, some of my all time favourites and what else is on my bookshelf. I will be purchasing all new books via them. If you purchase through my shop I will receive 10% on every commission and they will give a matching 10% to independent bookshops.
