Last year I read 43 books. My goal this year is to keep it above the 40 mark. If you want to see if I'm on track you can check my progress on this 50 Book Challenge thread.

I also am trying to finish an Alphabet Challenge. The Alphabet Challenge, 26 books with authors all beginning with a different letter of the alphabet, can be found here.

Other challenges I want to complete in 2017:

What's In A Name Challenge
(read a book with these things in the title)
A number in numbers: Around the World in 80 Days by Jules Verne, finished 6/15
A building:
A title which has an ‘X’ somewhere in it:
A compass direction:
An item/items of cutlery:
A title in which at least two words share the same first letter – alliteration!

Monthly Keyword Reading Challenge

Interesting link, The "Mad Men" Reading List:

About my libraryUsually I only keep a book after reading it if I love, love, love it (or as I like to say, it becomes a part of me). What you see in my virtual library are those books, an embarrassing amount of books waiting to be read, and a few books from my classroom library which is far too extensive to even begin entering in earnest.

I also enjoy wasting time using the "Read but Unowned" category. I have been a chronicler since I was a kid and have pieced together some of my reading life pre-LibraryThing through photos, journals, and lists of books I read during my summer breaks as a child. It's been fun entering them here and seeing which ones I remember!
