Popsugar Reading Challenge 2017

I tried to do the 2016 reading challenge by Popsugar, but I started late and the few months I had did not go as planned. This time I'm early, and this time I'll complete the challenge, hopefully before the summer.

In order to reach 300 books before my 30th birthday I need to read 102 books. How do I do it? Audiobooks. Libribvox, youtube or my own library, there are plenty of books ready to be listened to. I don't have issues listening to books while doing other things, like crafting, so that way I'm able to double up my productivity.

I already have a list full of books that will fit this challenge, but I won't add them before I've actually read them.
