Project Bibliophile: 52+ Books in 2015

I am a certified bookworm. I grew up reading a lot of books and I spent most of my lunch breaks at our school library. My childhood was basically an adventure to the other side of the realm. Reading is fun as it takes you to other worlds for free. This is probably one of the reasons why I wear a -225 grade glasses now - the effect of too much reading. But then again, no one can stop me from reading!

In 2014, I didn't had the chance to read a lot books. During that year, I was still a new kid in town (lol, I didn't care if everybody loves me, lol at the reference though), adjusting to my new work environment. New Year 2015 came and one of my new year resolutions was to read more books.

My initial plan was to read 100 books in 2015, but I thought it would be impossible because I work five times a week, and some of the books that I want to read are thicker than my wrist. Change of plans: 52 books to read in 2015. That literally translates to one book per week. Seems possible. As of this writing, I have already read 59 books! Yey! Proud to say that I've exceeded 52 books!

Below is the list of books I had read since the first day of 2015:
