As some of you are aware, I decided to challenge myself in 2016 and try to read at least 50 books. I had fallen out of the habit of devouring books despite it defining my entire childhood, until a couple of years ago when I decided to read all of Terry Prattchet’s Discworld. It was a very pleasant year of reading, that reignited my passion for the written word. Then a friend insisted I read Rothfuss’ Kingkiller Chronicles, going as far as to transport his copies of the books all the way from Switzerland to Greece in order to lend them to me, which pretty much meant that with the addition of Neil Gaiman’s works I had been reading very few books that weren’t fantasy. Wanting to depart from my reading comfort zone, I asked my tumblr followers to send me recommendations and they really came through.
As of this month I have read 5 out of the 50 books, which means I am well on my way to victory.
