My 50 Books for 2016 Challenge

My 50 Books for 2016 Challenge

The smell of the pages as you turn them, the printed words on the paper and the thought of closing one book only to start a new one; I love all these things. I have always been a voracious reader and I can easily finish reading a book in a day or two, provided I have nothing else to do. However, I have been very busy lately and in the past year I have read very few books and to me this is sort of a failure.

Books for me have always been vessels of knowledge and the more I read the more I know about things. They do more than just improve my vocabulary. They entertain; they make me laugh; they make me cry; they make me human.

In order to not repeat the mistake of reading too few books last year, I have decided to challenge myself this year and the challenge is to read 50 books, both fiction and nonfiction. So, in no random order, I have listed 50 books which I should finish reading by the end of 2016.
