52 Weeks

A combined reading and blogging challenge I've set for myself for 2017 to read 52 books in the 52 weeks that make up a year.

Seventeen of the books on this list will be books I started in previous years, about half a dozen or so are books I've borrowed from family members and not gotten around to reading, and the rest (I hope) will be from my bookshelves. I have far more books on my shelf that I haven't read than books I have, and I hope to put a good dent in the number of unread by the end of the year.

Here's the list. Book titles will be added as the challenge progresses, and links will be added as posts go live.
