50 Books in 2012

I Read 50 books in 2012, Yes baby, FIFTY. And thanks to Goodreads.com, I have been able to keep track of it.

I took upon the challenge in July, so I was trailing by a big margin. actually huge is the word. But somehow I made it. I must be thanking good reads for rekindling my love for the dusty pages. 🙂

You must all try The good reads challenge. It would do you a ton of good.

So there goes the list of the fifty books I so voraciously consumed.

  2. 50 books!! :0
    That's great!!
    Bhwaahh 😦 I always think I should start reading books! but, I don't!! you see am too lazy! :/
    Any tips how to start?? 😛 (This question sounds stupid I know :P)


  3. Oh wow amazing!!! I had also made a goal of 50 books this year on good reads but i am going to woefully fall short of my goal because throughout the year I read very few books!!! My last year's goal of reading 30 books was fulfilled though.
    Congrats to you for finishing your 50 book challenge! 🙂


  4. I understand your inclination, Princess. But still come on, you should give the idiot in the box a rest.

    Goodreads will help trust me, If you like a challenge there you go.

    50 next year? I challenge you. 🙂
