My friend Adriana posted the reading challenge and I jumped on that bus without thinking. Then I thought... WHAT WAS I THINKING?!?!?!
2012 was the year I read and listened to almost 30 books... this year's resolution is, well,, do at least a third of it.
The challenge contains 52 books, theoretically, you're supposed to read a book per week.
I know myself and I KNOW I won't be able to do it. So, in order to avoid future disappointments, I chose books that fit more than one category. To make up for that I plan to read books in Spanish, English, a book written in French and a book in Portuguese.
I can't assure I'll be able to finish, but I solemnly promise I'll try.
Anyone ready to take the challenge, be my guest.
