52 books in 52 weeks – BW19

Read 52 books in 52 weeks 2013

This year, I started a challenge to read 52 books in 52 weeks.  The goal of the challenge is to read at least one book each week for 52 weeks.


I’ve been lax in reading lately, devoting my spare time instead to getting my youngest boy caught up on his schooling and preparing for my oldest boy’s wedding.  Now that the last 9 weeks of school is planned out and the wedding is over, I can get back to my reading. 🙂

Linked book titles are Amazon affiliate links. If you buy the book, I’ll receive a small token of the sale.  If you’d like to help me out but prefer a different version than the one linked, let me know. I’d be more than happy to create a custom link for you to use.

I enjoy reading Harry Potter fan fiction stories, especially novel-length stories.  Those included here are works greater than 60,000 words to date, or are sequels of works greater than 60K words and thus anticipated to be of similar length once complete.  Individual stories link to the story page, sequels link only to the author, since I recommend starting from the beginning of a series. If you are a hard-core HP fan wanting to delve into fan fiction, there are plenty more I can strongly recommend as excellent reading. 😉
