12 months of reading

Soooo I have a lot of books and by a lot I mean a lot.

They are not books I have read either, they are the total opposite. Most of them, in fact nearly all of them are books I have not read. I have an addiction to buying books and never reading them, that’s not to say I don’t like reading because I do, I really do. It’s just I buy to many to be able to keep up.

My plan for this year is too read all my books before I buy anymore, I am not letting myself buy any more.

These pictures below will hopefully show you why it is probably going to take me a year.


So many books, so little time

All of these books apart from I would say 6, maybe 7 I haven’t read. I know, I know, why would I keep buying books? I don’t know, I can’t help it, I see it, I want it what can I say.


And there’s more……

I was originally going to vlog my reading journey, I thought it might help motivate me to get the job done but although I have recorded a couple of videos, I have realised that I am not very good at keeping up with it and I haven’t posted them anywhere so far. Thats not to say I won’t in the future but for now I thought why not blog it. I may still do some videos but at least for the moment I don’t have the pressure of editing and remembering to record a video and I already have a blog so why not use it.

I was also thinking of doing a review for each book as well as blog my 12 month journey, I don’t know if that will be of any interest to anyone but I think it will help me to keep reading without the pressure of videos (unless I want to).

I mean we are already in February and I have only read 2 books so I need to do something.

When I have read the books I have decided that the ones I don’t want to keep I will donate them to charity or see if friends or family might like them. I’m hoping that I will clear some room on my very crowded bookshelves.

The first book I read was in January and it was called The New Mrs Clifton by Elizabeth Buchan but I will do a whole new blog post about that.

So without further ado, welcome to my 12 months of reading.

Wish me luck!
