2019 Reading Challenge Update

At the beginning of 2019, I challenged myself to read more and pledged to consume at least 45 books since last year, I finished a total of 35. I know it’s a bit of a conservative number but I just want to be slow & sure, too. So far, we’re right on schedule and here are the list of books that I’ve read since January.
