Ahahaha, how embarrassing!

Thanks for pointing out my typo, Ted! I fixed it :D

I am two books behind schedule to reach 52 this year. Hoping to be able to catch up over the rest of the year as I have a 2 week beach vacation coming up soon!

I knocked out 4 books over the last 2 weeks but I am still about 4 behind track for reaching 52 this year. I may have to 'cheat' and put some short stories in the mix to balance out those beastly epic books I tend to read!

Haha, maybe some Roald Dahl? Very funny and interesting short stories. Although they tend to be bundled with 10 of them into one book, so I'm not sure if that will help you cheat ;)

I finished 50 books, the last one on New Years eve. Since there wasn't a prize I decided not to bother we the short stories!

Without really trying, I've made it to 52 books this year already. My trick was that I found a series of 25+ books (The Bolitho Series by Alexander Kent) that are short (about 250 pages) and very easy to read; I knocked out 2 of these a week.

Without even planning it, my 52nd book was none other than Desert God!
