2018 Reading Challenge

For anyone who is interested in playing along, this is my reading challenge for the year. Twenty-six books. Theoretically one every two weeks. Which is 100% possible. It is, in fact, more than possible, given as a child, I would often read a book a day. It is also proving to be a larger challenge than I would like. Adulthood gets in the way of reading for pleasure.

At any rate, I will update this as I finish each new book. Feel free to play along on your own.
