The Books

Number #3 on my original Things to Do Before I’m 40 list is “Read 400 books”.

That means I have 1,750 days to read, well, 400 books. It sounds like a pretty impossible task (although, when you break it down it’s only one book every four days) but I’m going to give it my best shot.

To help me keep on track of where I’m at, I’m going to list each completed book here, and will link to a little review.
