One reader, 197 books, one year to finish them all

One reader, 197 books, one year to finish them all | Online reading challenges and book clubs | Scoop.it
In 2011, Ann Morgan, a journalist and author in the UK, set herself the goal to read a book from every country in the world in one year. And she blogged about it.
OTEN Creative Writing's insight:

 

Self-initiated reading challenges such as this one give the reader scope to design their own approach. It's great that this reader chose to share her reading experiences via her blog, so that we can all read about the results.
