2013 Reading

On the first day of the new year, I vow to continue to pursue my bookish tendencies, but maybe it might do me well to take a break from taking on a challenge that requires me to read 100 books because the books I want to plow through will definitely take me more time than 365 days. I don’t want to pick up books and finish them just to add to the count anymore. I want to actually make more sense in my intellectual pursuits.

In 2013, starting today, I shall tackle books from BBC’s list of 100 Books to Read Before You Die. The list hasn’t been updated in eight years, but I shall add my own picks to it as I get through the list in no particular order.
