__________________________________________________ ____________________

Frequently Asked Questions:

[spoiler]
1. How long is the challenge?
The challenge runs from 1st of January 2019 to 1st of January 2020.
Roughly 52 weeks to finish 52 books with an average of one book per week.

2. What's the purpose of doing this challenge?
General purpose of this challenge is to finish one book/week, and in the process develop the habit of regular reading and increase enjoyment of reading.

My goal/purpose-


3. What type of books are allowed for this challenge?
-ebooks/regular books
-Textbooks (if read in its entirity)
-Comic books/ graphic novels
-Audiobooks

4. Can I read comic books/ graphic novels for the purpose of this challenge?
Yes, but it's not recommended that readers read comic books in bulk to complete the challenge. The rule of thumb is maybe keeping it to 3-5 comic books/ graphic novels per challenge.

5. Will I have to write a review for the books I've been reading?
It's recommended, not mandatory. This year I will try to write reviews for every single book that I finish.

6. How will reading change my life?
Maybe it won't turn your life around 180 degrees (Misc 360 degrees..moonwalk.gif), but it will give you the insight/knowledge/tools to navigate through your life easier (hopefully).

7. My reading level is laughable, how can I 'level up'?
'Levelling up' occurs from being better than your previous self. In the world of books, you can always read books that are more complicated than the previous ones, books that'll make you stop reading and reach for a dictionary/ponder on points.

8. I don't have the time for reading books, is this challenge right for me?
If you're insanely busy, this challenge might seem like a chore and you're better off not doing it. Forcing it would be counter productive. Reading should be a natural act and not a process of self-flagellation...imo.

9. I don't have money to buy books, is this challange right for me?
Not all of us are born rich, so issue of money is a stark reality. Here's the solution: public libraries where they're free and you can even access some of them online. Websites like the following can also prove to be useful:

Scribd (legal source)
[removed previous year's links as midway through the year a mod told us that any links to sites that may contain pirated goodies are not allowed anymore]
Some of these sites might be risky in terms of access and content, so use it at your own discretion

If you're reading classics, they are legally available for free in these places:
www.manybooks.net
www.gutenberg.org/

If you have ereaders- many of their native sites offer free ebooks all the time. Check your ebooks store.

10.I can't concentrate, or sit still and read, is this challenge right for me?
Books might be therapeutic in improving concentration. I'm not aware of any scientific studies but googling might help.


11.Are there any group/groups of people for whom this challenge is not right for?
Some groups of people for whom this challenge might not be optimal / beneficial:
-People who are reading for bragging rights, and who are reading without any comprehension to meet the weekly quota. It's better to read 20 books well than to read 100+ books haphazardly.
-Genuinely busy people.

12.Are their any tricks/ tips of reading 52 books in 52 weeks I should be aware of?
There were several posts in the previous threads regarding speed reading. Search the old thread.
I'm urging all to post useful tips in this thread.

Some suggestions from previous threads:
-Take a book with you wherever you go. Wear ear plugs (headphones more optimal??) in noisy places. (Credit: jreacher)
-Read the right books

[youtube]cVLpdzhcU0g[/youtube]


13. Are there any groups/people I can talk about books, and reading in general?
-Well, this thread comes to mind.
There is a goodreads Misc reading crew that's hardly active-
http://www.goodreads.com/group/show/68524-misc-brahs

MISC Reading Suggestions
https://www.goodreads.com/list/show/...ng_Suggestions

Librarything might have an online community but I'm unaware.

I’m in this year. Going to finally read that Jordan Peterson book everyone is going nuts over first. Steer me towards some others too my man. I like dystopian and post apoc stuff with political overtones and stuff that delves into social psychology

I wouldn't start with his 12 rules book personally, but if its because you just want to see what the fuss is about I guess give it a spin. Its probably my least favorite work from him though its still good. Maps of meaning was a lot more rich.

I don't love post apoc and dystopian narratives much but I will say that Homo Deux book by Yuval Harari is a non fiction book that considers where we are headed in the age of computer technology and I loved it. youd prolly dig that a lot.

I read less social psychology work last year Id have to dig up 2017 list to get you some of those books but the social animal by ron aronson I think it was is one of my favorites

Mcdonaldization of society was another one of my favorites if youre into sociology

Word I’ll start with those, I’ll peep the book you mentioned before the 12 rules to get a good baseline for him

YO finishing up this English literature class I took for the winter semester and one of the reading assignments was Araby by Joyce which I understand is one of the chapters in Dubliners and we had to analyze the symbolism in the narrative. pretty cool class especially if you like to read. Ill never read a book or watch a movie the same again in my life honestly.

but yea Joyce is dope...I hope Ireland isn't still as depressing as it was in his day for your sake LOL

1. Permanently Suspended - Anthony Cumia (2/5)
2. Fire and Blood - George RR Martin (currently slogging through)

Had a 50 dollar gift card to barnes and noble and didnt know what to get. Got the Cumia book to support cuz hes a top tier radio turned podcast guy. Book blows. Its a guinea tin knocker autobiography about how he was a piece of trash from long island who caught a break and was funny on radio and went on to earn millions with opie and anthony. All the good stories he already told on radio and podcasts tho with funnier people interjecting etc. So it sucked.

The george martin book is a boring history of westeros about the targaryan kings before anyone in the game of thrones books aka all that anyone cares about anyways

But i already have the other big illustrated companion book about the world of ice and fire so i figured id grab that too

That’s dope man, sounds interesting. I’d love to do something like that. Or creative writing part time even.

I’ve never read a lot of the “classics” and I’m from Dublin so I said fuck it let’s get depressed. I’m going to read Ulysses next. There’s something really gratifying about reading about Dublin man. It’s been through a lot as a city, there’s still bulletholes in a lot of famous landmarks from the Rebellion. It’s not as bad now haha.

One I would recommend for your list which is centered around Dublin is “The Hearts Invisible Furies” - John Boyne. Same guy who wrote The Boy in the striped pajamas. I didn’t even know he was Irish until I started reading it. Really wonderfully written, very witty, typical Irish dark humour. I’d give it 5/5 for sure.

Here’s a goodreads link:

word ill definitely peep sometime this year. The first year I did this I read a fair amount of classics...theyre classic for a reason but word I like to read more modern stuff these days...now and then ill opt for a classic though

an word that's wild about Dublin...definitely best time to indulge in depressing work is when youre happiest lol

Audio Books.

No one reads anymore, they listen.

Could be done whenever and 100% more convenient. I mostly listen on my rides to and from work.

I don’t think I can do a book a week as I don’t have the time to sit every day and read but I’ll give it a try, got 25 books to read in my goodreads challenge so if I get to that, atleast I’d of made some progress. I think I read 15-18 books last year. And that’s me slacking off so I know I could do better.

I am thinking about reading less books but reading each two or three times.


But for now:

1. Robert Greene - Laws of Human Nature
Reading Ray Dalio - Principles
Albert Camus - the plague
