Breathe To Read

2018 Challenge

This year I am going to do things a little differently.  I am going to just try to read 75 books - no categories assigned.  My ORIGINAL plan this year was to start to read a book from an author of every country, but now that we are in Switzerland, it is very hard for me to get books in English.  So - since I don't have a good library to borrow from, I am just going to pick books I can read on my Kindle or possibly borrow from our small English library here.  Category challenges will have to wait until we move back to the US.

I put a request out on my facebook page and the Ladies Library page I follow for ideas.  I have some avid reader friends, and they did not disappoint.  A large part of my list here are from their suggestions and recommendations.  It is going to be fun to read this year.

I did put 75 books on the list again, so we will see if I can reach it.  I am still going to be abroad this year, and we have a lot of trips planned, BUT - I need to fit in more books.  Take them along more often on my explores. 

So - here is the list as it stands today.  It may ebb and flow a bit as the year goes along depending on what I can TRULY borrow (I have done some research and it looks like I can borrow about 95% of this list) and what I can get when we return for a visit to the USA this summer.

I linked the books to their Amazon page, so if you are interested in reading about any of them - just click the title and it will take you to the description page on Amazon.
