So Many Books, So Little Time

How to start off 2013? New Year’s Resolutions everyone knows you’ll never keep or a feeling of self-loathing as you shovel down even more Quality Streets left over from Christmas while promising that the diet would start tomorrow? I’ve vowed that in this New Year I will take part in a reading challenge, set by myself, to read over 100 or more classic books and decided that on the 1st of January, 2013 I would start and finish on the 31st of December. I would read all of them, cover to cover in that time while also posting reviews of them all each time I’d finish. Seemed easy enough. What could go wrong?
