My mission101 for 2016_Project #21_Read 50 Books

no title While I didn't entirely make it, having read 48 out the 50 books, I feel I am close enough to call this task COMPLETE & I also feel I am done with books for the remainder of the year. I think from now until December 31, I'll read my back-log of magazines and start fresh with this whole book thing in 2017.

Some of these books were part of a meme fansee posted about & that I decided to play with. The meme challenges are marked in RED.
Some of these books were part of my bookclub & are marked in BLUE.
Some of these books were rereads & are marked in GREEN.
I've done the colors, mainly, to make this post prettier :)
