27. Read 100 books

DSC_6133

When I was younger, I used to read everything you could possibly read. Now that I don’t have as much spare time anymore, I tend to spend it differently. However, I do still like to read and whenever I pick up a book, I am reminded of that again. You could also take a look at my book shelves to know that I still like to read, though the amount of books that I have read versus the amount of books that I own is simply ridiculous.

But my spending habits are not what I wanted to talk about today. I wanted to talk about reading books. I want to motivate myself to read more books and there’s almost nothing that motivates me more than lists. So, like last time, I want to make a list of 100 books I’ve read for my Day Zero challenge.
