Back in 2015, I committed to read at least 50 books and by July, I successfully finished the reading challenge at Goodreads. The official count was 79 books but based on my own list, I almost read a hundred. I forgot to update Goodreads with some of the titles that I read, some chick lit and Ya books which one could finish in a day or two. Unaccounted were some book of poems that I don’t need to finish in one reading. There are books that truly inspire and I usually read them again and again. This year I am challenging myself to read 100 books, an eclectic mix of poems, historical novels, fiction, memoirs and some classic books that I found last year. I have just finished Neil Gaiman’s The Graveyard Book and in the middle of reading the third book of the century trilogy by Ken Follett entitled Edge of Eternity. It’s a tome, maybe an equivalent of three romance books or chick lit. I love the story though, it happened at the time Kennedy was the US president and when Martin Luther King was a revered figure of the black population in America. It happened when East Germany put up a dividing wall preventing its population to cross West Germany. I guess this is the best of the three books. It’s really hard to put it down.
If you find some words here that are clearly misspelled, blame it on the autocorrect feature of my tab.I am really finding it hard to publish a new post and check the blogs I follow here. Hopefully, everything goes back to normal in a month or two. Who am I kidding, I wonder if I could last that long without eyestrain.
