Resolve to Read 50 Books

I love to read, but I never get enough time to read all the books that I want to read. That’s why I’m excited to commit to HPB’s Resolve to Read 50. That’s right – I am committing to reading at least 50 books this year. Now, I just need to pick the books! I want to read some older books that I’ve never read but also a lot of the new books that have come out in the last few years (and some that will be coming out this year) that I really want to read. Here is what my list will probably look like.
