2017 reading challenge


After completing the 52-week book challenge in 2016, I felt reading had taken over my life! I decided to halve the number to 26 books to read across the year.

The book I loved the most and was probably one of the shortest was Ernest Hemingway’s ‘The Old Man and the Sea’ – my favourite quote:

Now is no time to think of what you do not have. Think of what you can do with what there is.
