New Year’s Resolution

Well, I had so much fun with Popsugar’s 2016 Reading Challenge, I think I should make Popsugar’s 2017 Reading Challenge my New Year’s Resolution.

Unlike this year, I will start out with just one book per category next year.

This next one has 40 books to read, like the last one, plus an “Advanced” list of 12 more books, in case I finish the first 40 in less than a year.

(There are going to be some real challenges for me in this one. For instance, I’ve never had much luck with following an audiobook.)
