I love reading and regularly visit the library, now I carry a notebook with this list and as you can see I’ve already completed a few. It makes looking for books more of a challenge, planning what to look for in advance.
Any suggestions welcomed…
Updated from an earlier blog post, so far so good. Only a few months remaining to complete the challenge and it’s looking promising.
