60 Books in 1001 Days

To be honest, I started the book challenge earlier in the year after finding out about it on's book club forum. That's a little over a book a week, which is more than manageable for me because I read all the time. I thought about adding more books for the purposes of this challenge, but I decided to add the goal of completing a "Must Read" list that a professor gave me a few years ago in a creative writing class instead of simply upping my number of books read. (I will post the "Must Read" list in a different blog.)
