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.

      1. Thank you for the suggestions, I’ve read all the Harry Potter books so will look at something different for magic. I’ve not read any of your other suggestions so I’ve made a note and will look for them in the library and on my travels.
