Book Club 2015/2016


Probably because both of us were brought up playing sports and with male siblings, we instinctively have a bit of a competitive nature. So why not bring the competition to a new nerd level and challenge each other to read 52 books in 52 weeks! Well not exactly. We are going to split it and each read 26 books over the next 52 weeks. At the end of each month, we review!

Considering we both participate in our own book clubs, selecting books should be the easy part; however, those are on a monthly basis, so we definitely need more titles! Solution, we will read our own clubs books AND the books from each others clubs. That gives us 2 weeks a book, is it doable? Here’s hoping!

We are starting with the following books, and will provide reviews and updates periodically.

Happy Reading!
