Discussion: 2017 Reading Challenge

Happy Early Thanksgiving, Readers! As many of you know, last year I participated in two book challenges (not including the yearly Goodreads Challenge I do). I'll post an update of how I did on those either in the last week of December, or the Beginning of January. There's still some time for me to work on those.  They've inspired me to create a reading challenge for 2017. I've had some friends interested in it, so I thought I'd share it here. Hopefully, everyone enjoys it!

There were some good ones on the previous lists and some that just aren't going to happen. Some of my items are similar to these other challenges so as a credit, here are those links again Pop Sugar Reading Challenge Modern Mrs. Darcy's Reading Challenge

  1. I love it! I couldn't do it because kids make it hard to find time to read. Reading 50 books seems unattainable. Not being a very fast reader doesn't help either. But I like the list!

  2. Yeah, 50 books is going to be a huge stretch for me as well. My goal for 2016 is only 35. So, we shall see! Glad you like it :)


Thank you for reading my book blog. Please feel free to leave a comment to further or start a discussion on the book reviews and other posts. If you have a book recommendation for me, I would love to hear it!
