52 Books in 52 Weeks


Listen here

In a few weeks people will be making their new year’s resolutions. Some will vow to stop smoking, others to exercise more.

Here is another challenge that some people might attempt in the new year: reading a book a week for 52 weeks, starting at the beginning of January.

If you decide to take up this challenge, then you might wish to select books that are relatively short in length – 300 pages or less. Tolstoy’s War and Piece and Hugo’s Les Miserables might be too long to read in a week.
