40 before 40 Book List

As part of my 40 before 40 project, I have (possibly foolishly) committed to try to read 250 books in the next 3 years and 6 months, or 184 weeks since starting the list.

I am going to start the list off with a few books I want to make my way through, but this will be a living/evolving list that will be added too over the coming months and years.

Updat Sept 2017 – Okay I am getting a wee bit bothered by the fact that I have somehow only managed to read 6 books so far. The problem is I only read when I go to bed, and I am notorious for falling asleep as soon as my head hits the pillow. I think I am going to have to start putting time aside during the day to do a wee bit of reading.

Update Jan 2016 – The Fiery Cross (Outlander series book 5) – Currently reading  After loving the first 4 books of the Outlander series I’ve had to stop reading this book – I found it boring and a task to read unfortunately, and a book should never be a chore. Maybe I will be able to come back to the series but for now I am moving on to something else .
