Here we go again, folks :D .

Happy new year, and welcome to the CBB Book a Week Challenge for 2018!

The rules are the same as always, and the challenge is to read at least one book for every week during the year.

If you're new to the challenge, the rules are as follows:

1. Re-reads not included
2. At total of 52 books to be read by the end of the year. This equates to roughly one a week, although obviously some books take longer to read than others
3. All books are allowed, as are transcripts of something you would otherwise have read in book form. Textbooks etc count, as long as you've read the whole thing!
4. This is a personal challenge and not competitive

Everyone taking part in the challenge should create their own personal challenge post on this thread. Use that post for the rest for the year when you finish each book. Please edit your post as follows:

1/52 Book One-Author
2/52 Book Two-Author
and so on right up to 52 (and beyond if the mood takes you!)

If you would like to contribute more information, please feel free to post reviews in another thread within the Recommendations forum. This thread should only be used to update your own post with your book count, though, please .

If you just fancy using this thread to record the books you've read through the year, rather than aiming for 52, and or to use different colours for different genres, then please feel free to do so.

The first person to finish a book in 2018 may have the pleasure of starting their list first!

Happy reading, all.
