50 Book Challenge #1

CHALLENGE #1 (June/July 2009 – July 2010)

This was my very first 50 Book Challenge attempt. I used to set myself a goal to reach during the summer, but then I came across people setting themselves a goal for the year and decided to join in. This is why I can’t remember the exact date I started but I managed to read 46 books in (roughly) a year.
