Happy Blogiversary!

Today is the one year anniversary of Book Fifty! This is a huge deal for me, because it’s the first time I’ve ever been able to maintain a blog–or any type of writing project–for that long. I thought today I’d take a trip down memory lane and share some of my all time favorite Book Fifty posts from the last year!

1. What is a Classic? 

This post is the first of a two-part series about why the classics matter. In this particular post, I share my definition of a classic book.




2. Six Reading Goals for 2016

I’m pretty proud of this post, which offers practical advice on how to set a reading goal. I wrote it around New Year’s, but you can set a reading goal any time!

3. Audible: Pros and Cons

This post is one of my most viewed, and I think it’s a great review if you’re still on the fence about whether or not audiobooks are for you!

4. London Wrap-Up

You all followed along as Mom and I trekked to the UK in April, and this post is a great summary of what worked and what didn’t.

By far the biggest book I’ve read this year was Alexander Hamilton by Ron Chernow. This book review combines history, theatre, and political drama!!


So those are just a few of my favorite posts, but I’ve loved getting to share my thoughts about all things book-related here on the blog. I’ve also been overwhelmed by the support for my pictures on Instagram. Thanks for following along and encouraging me–it means a lot.

Keep Reading!
