100 books read. That is what I want to be able to say at the end of 2015. It is kind of a lofty goal. I mean, that is two books a week! I’ll let you in on a little secret, I have only read one book so far this year. And it is already the 16th!
I have seen a lot of people put up their reading list for the year, and I thought that was an awesome idea!
Of course, compiling a reading list is not an easy feat.
I thought that I might be able to easily write down 100 books that I wanted to read this year. Writing down 100 books is easy, but figuring out the ones that I want to read this year, not so easy!
I have come up with a smaller list of books that I want to read though, and have ordered some of them. I hope to use the library to fill in the gaps! Some of these books I own and have never read, some I have read before and want to re-read because they are that good. Here is my *much smaller than 100 books* book list for 2015, in no particular order.

So technically this is only 30 books. But, I feel like it is a really good start! It certainly is heavy on the non-fiction, but that is what I am feeling right now. I am sure I will easily get some fiction reading in.
I also want to reiterate: all books that are over 100 pages that I read with the kiddos will also be included in my 100 books read goal!
What is on your reading list this year?
