100 books in a year

I wasn’t really sure I was going to participate in another 100 books in a year challenge in 2012 as I knew  my year wouldn’t be conducive to much reading. Turns out I did pretty well (still didn’t achieve the 100 though).

And as the challenge I usually participate in doesn’t include non-fiction books, I didn’t register for it but kept a list for myself.

You can see I listed some stories and novellas as well – anything to get the number as high as possible and re-reading HP helped as well as I read it fast (and it helps with stress too). So, with little cheating with the novellas, I actually got the list to a higher number this year (it was 81 in 2011).

New books challenge! Summer at Hogwarts

This one is definitely for me (yes, I’m aware I said the same for the Romance Summer challenge too). 🙂

But the thing is, I love Harry Potter books and I was thinking about reading some of them again but not sure where to start so now I know. At the beginning. 🙂

If you are interested in participating, head on over to Loving Books and enjoy. You have 2 months (summer at Hogwarts) starting June 1 to finish all 7 books (which is plenty of time).
Hope you join!

P.S. It seems she was a bit mistaken (I realized it only when I started reading the series again). Summer holidays at Hogwarts start with the July 1.
