Book Challenge 2014
Seeing as there is some good discussion about 2014's reading in the 2013 thread, I figured it was a good time to start 2014's Book Challenge thread! Post your goals and recommendations!

Errrrm, I feel I always overestimate myself when it comes to books, I only read 6 or 7 this year when I was hoping for at least ten

Maybe I'll go for 12, a book per month

I am decreasing the number in 2014 so I am aiming at 25 books at least.

I'm going for 35 for now. I'll see how much fuel I've got as time goes. I already started my first book. It's fiction and it seems sweet and funny.

01. The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion

My main is to finish the Game of Thrones books, largely as they belong to my brother so at some point he'll want them back.

I can read a book in a week but lets be realistic, I won't want to read everyday of the year. So I'll say 25 books.

I am once again going for 30 but this year I doubt I can make it, as I will have a lot in hands...

I want to read all the Game of Thrones novels as well, but I'm reading each book before its season. So it is all still fresh in my mind. First book of the year!

1. Lord of the Rings: Return of the King - JRR Tolkien

I'm back in school and it's really cutting into my reading time. I'm aiming for 15 this year, hopefully I get through more.

1.) Twenty Letters To A Friend by Svetlana Alliluyeva

I'm going for 25 books this year. I only read 22 in 2013 so hopefully I can meet my goal this year!
