66 Books In One Year
Last year I came up with an idea that I would register and rate all the books I would read during one year. I blogged about every book (a Swedish blog) and added some notes to each and rated them. Now it’s finished! I’ve finally completed a long term project ;).
I’ve read 66 books since last year and I’ve even have several periods when I didn’t feel like reading at all. So I thought I should share a list with you guys, a list with books that’s gotten 4 and 5 out of 5. I’ve linked them to Amazon so you can read more about them. If you want to read the titles in Swedish, take a look at this post!
I’v added a * to the books you really really should read!
