2015 Reading Challenge


With a quarter of 2015 whoosed away, and exams on my head. I await my precious non-academic reading time.Here is a challenge I'm taking up and putting up here, so that it hurts me physically when I don't do it.

I also have an evolving Reading List of books everyone must read, do have a look. If you are joining this challenge with me, do leave a comment so that we can wallow in self pity together when we don't complete it. Much, love!
