For this I am planning to take on the infamous ‘fifty a year’ challenge, in which the aim is to read fifty books in one year. After I’ve read each of the books, I’ll rate it and give a little review on how I found it.
However, as a little twist I am going to complete this challenge FOR FREE, attempting to find and review good quality books without spending a single penny. Partly to make it a bit more difficult, partly because I haven’t got a penny to spend…
Rules: I can only read;
- Books that I already own but have not read
- Books from the library (a tougher task than it seems!)
- Free books available to download on the Kindle
- Books that friends lend me, although I can’t ask for specific books and need to trust their judgement
If you know of any books that I can acquire for free and you would like to see me read, please feel free to leave me a message!
I was inspired to do this challenge after reading Clare Diston’s (aka gildius) blog. Her break down of Fifty Shades of Grey is a brilliant read and you can find it here http://www.50ayear.com/the-fifty-shades-saga/
