BW52: 2017 Reading Year Wrap Up

White House Book Tree 2013 

Merry Christmas to you and yours!  Our Adventurous Prime reading journey is drawing to a close.  Did you enjoy spelunking and digging up gems from around the world, uncovering polished stones as well as rough, blemished chunks of minerals just waiting to be revealed.  I had loads of fun searching for and reading new to me authors plus reading through series by favorite authors with the Birthstone Bookology challenge as well as delving into different centuries, countries, and genres with 52 Books Bingo.  

  • Where did your reading take you this year?
  • What was your reading goal for the year and did you meet or beat your personal goal?  Did you end with a prime number of reads?

  • Top 5 (or more) favorite reads?
  • Which book stayed with you the longest after finishing it?
  • Which book made you want to read it all over again?  
  • Which book did you think you were going to love, but didn't?
  • Which genres or authors you thought you'd never read and was pleasantly surprised to like them?
  • Which countries and time periods did you visit?
  • Which books or authors would you recommend everybody read? 
  • Which mini challenges did you enjoy? 
  • Please share favorite covers or quotes
  • And last, but not least, share your list of completed reads! 
Congratulations and thank you to everyone who joined in our 2017 adventurous reading year.    I'd also like to thank all who have followed our progress.  Are you ready to dive in yet?  *grin*  Whether you read fast or slow or listen to audio books;  read fluffy, light romances or heavy classics, comedy to drama, urban fantasies to thrillers, or nonfiction to comics, the most essential thing is reading.  

“Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counselors, and the most patient of teachers.” 
~ Charles William Eliot

I have enjoyed sharing our reading journey and look forward to the new year and more bookish adventures.  

~Cheers to a blessed and happy reading new year!
