It all began in 2003 in a small LiveJournal community for book lovers, and those looking to re-awaken their love of reading:
Could you challenge yourself to read 50 books in one year's time?
Since then, the challenge has continued and spread around the internet to many other communities, websites, forums and personal blogs. People around the world are pushing themselves to get back into reading and rediscovering the joys and knowledge that reading books can bring into our lives.
Does the idea of reading 50 books in one year seem impossible to you? Or is it something you already do as an avid book-reader and lover of literature? What are some of the obstacles keeping you from reading books regularly, and how can you tackle them? I have tried to take on the 50 Book Challenge several times before, and always failed in the past - but I'm trying once again in 2015. Want to join me, or simply learn more about the challenge? Then read on as I share information and links about the 50 Book Challenge, as well as continue to update this page as I take on the 50 Book Challenge myself and share book reviews and personal progress along the way.
