Do I Still Have Time?

There is roughly 52 weeks in a year and currently about 27/28 weeks left in 2016. I don’t know the exact math. I do know that I want to try to read 52 books before 2016 is over. I think if I put enough effort into it I can. I got a kindle (I was anti kindle and anti e-reader for a while) and since I have thousands of books thanks to torrent sites I plan on utilizing my kindle.

I’ve been on a comic, manga, and graphic novel kick for the last year or two with only reading a small amount of actual novels.

So here are the books I plan on reading

The first 31 books are obviously on my kindle as you can tell by the fact that they are in order. Also, I think about two or three are novellas so I may be able to cram another book in. The first 31 books were free and you can get them too thanks to Project Gutenberg & Feedbooks. Some of these books I’ve read like a chapter or two. Currently I am reading Anthem by Ayn Rand. Anybody have any reading goals?

  1. I just bought #29, I love everything Oscar Wilde and thus highly recommend #23, and #9 is awe-some! (Wells is also one of my favourites. He had a way with words that makes me happy he quit his teaching job in order to write). And I wanna buy #41.
    I saw you put a Mary Shelley on your list. If you haven’t read Frankenstein, maybe you could put that on next year’s list. Along with To Kill A Mockingbird (such a good book!)
    Either way, have fun with this project! 😀


      • I did the same with The Importance Of Being Earnest. Read it while working out on my hometrainer :’) Keeps exercising interesting.
