Links I loved in the book blogging world from the week of April 13, 2018.
Create a list of books to read before you die that is customized for your tastes, curiosities, reading quirks, and for the ways you want to grow as a reader, thinker, and human being.
How to approach rereading your favorite books to make the most of your time, appreciate the book, and remember the details of the story.
My reading bucket list includes 50 books I want to read at some point in my life. Here are my plans to progress through my reading bucket list in 2018, and the books I’ve read since I first made the list in 2017.
As I mentioned in my look ahead post, my goal in 2018 is to read as many unread books that I already own as possible—and not buy more until I’ve made a good dent. In the spirit of a new year of reading, I’m calling this my “Read My Shelf Challenge”–though you know how I […]
