This little reading machine finished 50 books in one year.
For some of you this might not seem like a big deal but to me, it’s a sign of something much bigger than just reading books.
It was about finishing and accomplishing a goal that was larger than I expected or thought that I could actually complete.
For years I’ve set this goal for myself to read 40 books in one year and never accomplished it. LET ALONE READ 10 OVER THAT GOAL.
It’s kind of like the whole, “lose 15 pounds this year,” New Year’s resolution. You set it knowing that you aren’t going to do it and then when it happens it’s like the happiest accident.
The difference was that this year I set the goal and I told myself that I was hell bound and determined to accomplish it. AND I DID IT. WHAT!
Here is the list of books that I read in order of how I read them, not based on how good they were..just on the order of how I read them. I honestly picked whatever caught my eye and kept my attention. Some of them have cuss words (sorry about that).
Thanks to all who recommended some of these great reads. They were awesome!
