Read My Own Book Challenge

So, I started the year by challenging myself to read more books using Popsugar's 2016 Book Challenge but as I was going through books on our "library" at home I realized that I should just ditch the reading challenge and get on with reading the books I already have at home. We do have quite a lot of titles I haven't read and there's no better time reading them than now. It felt fulfilling going through all our books at home, sorting them into piles and all the time I was thinking of the big book haul I will be doing after I get through this reading challenge (guilt-free book shopping!) I limited my list to just 40 books which gives me a book a week to read, but I wanted to be realistic (take in those busy weeks where I wouldn't be able to get my hands on any single book) and I have quite a few ebooks in my eReader that I also wanted to get through (I only counted the physical ones for this challenge). So here goes my list:

1. Angels & Demons - Dan Brown
2. The Da Vinci Code -  Dan Brown
3. The Lost Symbol - Dan Brown
