2016 reading challenge


At least the one I’m planning on at this moment.  Level: 50+ Married with Children

I think the reason I’m struggling with finishing the A-Z challenge is an issue I’ve had since high school. I hate being told what to read. If I have to read something, I won’t. That’s why I end up avoiding things like PopSugar or Book Riot‘s challenges even though I love the idea of them. Part of the reason I love this challenge is only “rules” are books that were published before 2015. Since I’m still trying to purge the shelves, I think it’s a perfect one for me.

Since I’ve made at least four “what should I read?” posts in the last year, including one last night for the final push to 100 books, I’ve finally bit the bullet and decided to try Goodreads. I love Library Thing for the cataloging, but I’ve never made good use of the community aspects or the recommendations. So giving GR a go even though I hated it for so long. I do review all books for Amazon so it actually makes sense.

While I’ll finish 2015 in at least the 90s, I do think it will be a bit of a challenge to hit that level again without series to binge on, so I think I’m setting my official goal at 75. We’ll see.

    I’m setting myself a doable goal of 24 off my TBR list, but hopefully I’ll do more than that. Good luck to you! I’ll check back to see how you’re doing.

      Good luck to you too! I’m hoping for better balance to go with my 75 but we’ll see how it works
