I'm lucky enough to work at a bookshop, with fantastically well-read, intelligent, knowledgeable people. My and my colleagues were at the pub recently, and one of my colleagues claimed to read three books a week. I thought: "Wow, that's a lot of books to read a week!". Turns out, that's about average for a bookseller. So, in an attempt to step up my game, I've challenged myself to read a minimum of 52 books this year, with a goal of reading 156 books. You can keep up with my progress on Goodreads, if you like.
