A new year means a new reading list!! So let’s talk reading goals, shall we?
Do you track your reading? If so, how? Are you a member of Goodreads, or do you use a journal, notebook or computer file?
As for myself, I keep up with the bulk of my reading on Goodreads, but I also keep a Reading Log on my computer that helps me sort through the various challenges that I’m working on.
And speaking on challenges, do you enjoy adding a little fun to your reading experience by participating in reading challenges? There are as many ways to participate as there are books to read. I have some personal challenges but my favorites come from one of my Goodreads groups.
This year, I’m hoping to put some sort of dent into my To Be Read pile, specifically the books I currently own on my kindle or bookshelf. I know I won’t come close to scraping bottom, but in an effort to make my mark this year, I’ve decided to challenge myself not to simply read ANY author but off of a preselected list of authors. I have two such lists. One is called the Must Read Author List and I’m challenging myself to read two books from some new favorite authors that I had found in 2015. Along with this list is a list of authors that everyone keeps talking about but I haven’t tried yet. I’m challenging myself to read at least one book from each of these. Wanna see my lists? Maybe you can even recommend a title if you find one of your favorite authors on there. 🙂
Must Read Authors:
Susan May Warren
New Author List:
I’ve also challenged myself to read:
5 Civil War Journals
10 Books from my personal collection
Finish all 4 open series
Complete a 12 book challenge on Goodreads
There’s a lot here to work with and I’m looking forward to it. You can keep up with what I’m currently reading on Goodreads.
Now it’s your turn. Do you have any authors you’re hoping to try out this year? Are you planning to pick up any classics or non-fiction reading? Do you have any series you’d like to finish this year? Any fun challenges you want to share?
