52 Books in 52 Weeks

The Read 52 Books in 52 Weeks Challenge is hosted by Robin of My Two Blessings. It's pretty darned simple: read 52 books in 52 weeks. As she says "The goal is to read 52 books. How you get there is up to you."

The challenge is an annual one, running from January 1st to December 31st. In addition, she hosts several optional mini-challenges during the duration. She does weekly updates and posts with book weeks beginning on Sundays (with the exception of week 1, which runs from Jan 1st to 10th). You can join any time, and read anything (with the exception of children's books) in any form. Even better, rereads are totally fine and your books can overlap other challenges (which is really important for someone who has a pile of challenges like I do).

As with my other challenges, I'll be tracking my progress on the progress bar below. In addition, I'll be linking my completed reads below. Each link will go to the book's page on Goodreads. If I post a review here on the blog, I'll also indicate and link that.
