2013 Reading Challenges


As 2013 approaching, it’s time to do some more reading & library-cleaning.

I have more than 500 books and 3/4 of them are still waiting to be read.
Tahun ini gue belum berhasil baca 100 buku, tapi lumayan lah, udah 60an yang sudah dibaca. Tapi, dasar bookworm, setiap jalan ke mall rasanya ga lengkap kalo nggak ngintip toko buku, beli atau nggak (banyakan belinya sih).

Untuk menebus dosa setelah membeli banyak buku secara impulsif, maka gue iseng browsing book blog dan menemukan banyak tantangan membaca untuk tahun 2013.
