2015 Reading Challenge

I saw this on Pinterest yesterday and was like, “I have to do this!” I never know what to read next–too many options on my “to read” shelf and I’ve banned myself from the Recommendations department (still find myself there way too often).

And…I guess I could cheat and use one book for more than one item, but I challenged myself to read 50 books this year anyway.

Anyway, this is the tentative plan for what I’ll be reading for the rest of the year (or have already read):

  1. A book with more than 500 pages
    1. 1493: Uncovering the New World that Columbus Created
