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 :)

48 books in one year is amazing! I think I've read 5. I don't know what's wrong with me but I just can't get lost in books anymore.

Well done, you!

Oh sweetie, I would feel so lost without books but then, they have always been my escape. Maybe it's just that your reading likes have changed and you haven't yet found a new genre. I know what that's like because I used to read a ton of fanfic and now don't. And I find I do miss it. Oh well :)

I do feel lost without books. For as long as I can remember they've been such a huge part of my life. Now I stand in front of my bookcase at least once a week, looking at all my beautiful books only to sigh and walk away empty handed.

Sorry but that makes me feel a little sad but I will assume that you just have so much positive going on in RL that you don't need an escape :)
