I had such a marvellous time doing A Century of Books in 2012 that almost as soon as I finished I was eager to do it all again. It was good to have a year long break but today I (and several other ambitious bloggers) start again with the goal of reading one book published in each year of the Twentieth Century. I’ll be keeping track of my progress here.
I don’t have very specific reading plans (as I noted when I finished the challenge in 2012, the key to keeping it fun was having lots of options for each year so that I didn’t feel pressed to continue with a book I wasn’t enjoying just for the sake of checking a year off the list) but I do have plenty of ideas for what to read. I consciously held off reading some of my own books last year, knowing how good they would be for A Century of Books, so I am very eager to finally start on them:
Do let me know if you’re doing A Century of Books this year, too. It is so much more fun when you have a buddy to cheer you along!
