'Reading a book is like re-writing it for yourself. You bring to a novel, anything you read, all your experience of the world. You bring your history and you read it in your own terms.'- Angela Carter

Goodreads Reading Challenge 2014

Last year I managed to get way over my challenge of a 100 books - something that I am soooo happy about. I'm hoping this year will allow me to read even more than 2013 because there are no more essays to write! So this year I've challenged myself to read 130 books :).

  1. Good luck! :) I'm a slow reader, but I hope to read 100 books in a year someday.

  2. Good luck! I went for a 100 this year, hopefully I can make it. I already did in 2013, technically, as HP doesn't show up on 'read' anymore on GR. :)
    Happy reading!
