Recent Reads – John Steinbeck’s East Of Eden

“No one who is young is ever going to be old.” John Steinbeck, East of Eden

2015 Reading Challenge

This year I have decided to give reading a good and proper go – compared to my customary reading of once in a while. I have dusted down my Goodreads account (which had been left just as vacant as my books) for a piece of well needed inspiration. I’m always up for a challenge and when I saw on Goodreads the opportunity to set myself a 2015 reading challenge, I signed straight away. Thinking realistically, I have given myself the challenge to read 12 books over the next year. There is nothing more to gain from this except for personal pride and a slight feeling of smugness. We shall see how it goes. I didn’t want to be too daring as my commitment levels to new hobbies are not the best. I’ve tried hard to not create a list of ‘must reads’, instead I will just see what comes along and draws my attention. I’m not very particular when it comes to genre and I like to read a bit of everything and anything.
