To Read and What Not to Read! - Book Reading in 2014

2014 Reading Challenge

2014 Reading Challenge
Natalie has read 0 books toward her goal of 20 books.

I have been compiling a list of books that I would like to read in 2014.
I am signed up for the Book Reading Challenge on Goodreads again this year, as I have done for the last 2 years, and this time I would like to accomplish the goal of reading my 20 books.
This is what my stats look like from the past 2 years:

book reading in 2014

As you can see I managed to nearly double it in 2013 which I think is awesome.

What helped me increase my reading stamina was my online bookclub. Firstly the members there helped me to select the next book to read (which is mostly where the problem arises) and secondly I had a healthy time span in which to read the books.

The bookclub is a very quiet one and I would love for it to become alive with new members, so if you are looking to up your reading time this year, why not come on over and join in? You can join the club HERE
