I decided that 50 books isn't enough of a challenge for me now that my health is a bit better, plus I really need to attack my TBR pile. Therefore, I'm doing a 75 books challenge- not counting audiobooks and manga. But at least 50 of those books have to be books I own, at least at the time I'm reading them (if I don't like them enough to keep, they will go on swap sites). So my 50 book challenge and my read your own books challenge are exactly the same this year.
