In 2018 I had the “ten year anniversary” of this challenge. I wanted to introduce the 52 books that I read last year. In the list below you will find the title, the author and the star rating out of five possible stars. The links to the books are affiliate links to Amazon. This means, should you buy a book from Amazon via one of these links you pay as normal and I get a small fraction of the sales revenue as a thank you from Amazon. Of course, there is no disadvantage for you.
According to statistics, the majority of the population does not even read a book a year. On the other hand, one often hears that “successful” people read at least ten books a year. Whether these facts are true or not, they inspired me almost ten years ago to make me read at least 50 books each year. That’s how my “52 Books in 52 Week Challenge” came into being.
In 2018 I had the “ten year anniversary” of this challenge. On the one hand, I wanted to introduce the 52 books that I read last year, on the other hand, I wanted to explain in a video how I actually manage to read 52 books in a year:
The key things are:
Know why you want to read so many books.
Know how many you really want to read.
Don’t worry about how too much.
Combine reading with listening.
Use times in between to get extra reading in.

By now, I’ve read over 500 books in my life so far. The lessons from these are immensely valuable to me these days. I hope this list inspires you to launch a similar challenge in 2019 for yourself as well! Let me know in the comments, if you are open to this and if you have already done something similar in the past. Are there perhaps any books which I should read in 2019? Let me know in the comments.
