The British Books Challenge 2012

Last year, I signed up to do this and completed the 12-book challenge.  I really suprised myself with how few British books I read, seeing as I am myself British.  So this year, I am aiming for the 50 books!  *pumps fist to show determination*  The host has changed: This year it's being hosted by Kirsty @ The Overflowing Library
