Adventures, Books!

📖 52 Book Reading Challenge 📖

I know it’s a little late to be starting a book-a-week challenge for 2018, but some of the reading challenges are so easy to complete that you could easily read 2-3 books per week.

Rules for this challenge:

  1. Books CAN be Re-Reads. Just try to limit yourself so you aren’t just re-reading throughout this whole challenge. Let’s get those TBR’s down!
  2. No Duplicates. You can’t read one book and mark off 4 different categories.

Now before I get on with the fun list, here are a few links to help you save some money. (Since this is totally an excuse to buy new books. 😉 )

Ebates – Ebates is a website where you get paid to shop. I know, sounds too good to be true. Ebates gets a commission for sending its members to retailer’s websites and they share that commission with us. This link will give you $10 back off of your first purchase of $25 or more! Best part, They partner with over 1,800 stores! Including DisneyStore, Etsy, eBay, Barns&Noble, Society6 and so, so many more.

So far I’ve earned nearly $90 for using Ebates. It doesn’t sound like a lot but it’s a nice little chunk that gets put in my PayPal after the Holidays.

BookOutlet – BookOutlet is a great place to get NEW books for a fraction of the cost. They also have Scratch and Dent books for even cheaper. (I recently got a Hardback Box set of the Lunar Chronicles for $13. Just the corners and one of the sides were a little banged up.) And free shipping with a $35 order. With this link, you’ll get a $10 coupon when you spend $25!!! 

Book Depository – This is the best place to get international book cover and have it shipped to the U.S. I’ve personally bought all of the 20th Anniversary U.K. Harry Potter series with the new covers. And they are just beautiful ❤ And free shipping WORLDWIDE to boot!

Thrift Book– Get Used books that are in good condition starting at $3.79! And free shipping when you spend over $10! Ten. Dollars. So inexpensive!

*using these links gives me a small kickback 😉

And now, on to the fun stuff!

I’ve really been lacking in the reading department lately. All I’ve been doing is reading Avengers fan fiction.¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I’ve included the dates I finished each book. I think it will be fun to look back and see when I finished each book.

So far I’ve finished Challenge:

36. A book with a character that has your same name (or at least very close to it)
