Reading Challenge 2019.

Each year I set myself a reading challenge and ultimately try to beat the previous years. I have not been successful at hitting my target due to work or being in a serious reading slump, but this year I have been doing much better.

I also have included audio books this year which I have never done before. I have found that I enjoy listening to audio books and podcasts – something I never took the time to do  before.

So my challenge is as follows: 25 Books  and 5 Audio Books.
