128 Books That I Read in 2018 aka Yearly Reading Wrap up


Hey guys, I am Sankalpita and you are watching
bookGeeks India which is a channel where I make book-related videos. If you like books, if you love reading, make
sure you are subscribed to my channel, like and share my videos. Turn that notification on and guys please do comment
because you know it that I love it when you comment. Also, guys do recommend my channel to your
friends and family, share my videos if you like them if you think your friends or family
or anybody that you know might like them. Please do that. It really helps small booktubers like me,
small YouTubers like me to go ahead on this journey. If you guys know me, every year I take this
challenge called the Goodreads challenge wherein every year I decide upon a fixed number of
books to read. It is nothing sacrosanct or nothing that cannot
be changed or altered but yeah I like to give myself a little motivation in the form of
a challenge and if I, you know, beat it. It’s wonderful. So last year I gave myself the challenge to
read 120 books and thank God I actually managed to read 128 books. In this video, I tell you about the 128 books
that I read last year. Because if I start talking about to you about
each of these books this video will be so long that Youtube will actually not allow
me to publish it in one go. So, I am gonna keep it real short this time. I am just gonna be telling you the names of
the books that I read and show you the pictures here. I would love to show you the hard copies also
but trust me guys I don’t have that kind of patience. and I have so many bookshelves in
my house that it will take a lot of time to fetch all of these books. And some of these books I have also given
as copies to friends and in giveaways to you guys and I will just put the pictures here. Now, before I start this video I want to tell
you guys that these books are not in any order of preference. So, I am going to be starting with the first
book that I read and moving on to the last book that I read. So, the chronology is in terms of the date
that I read them. Starting from the first, starting from the
books that I read in January to the books that I read in December. And now, because I have spoken a lot already,
