I’m adding two more reading challenges for the year.
Yes, I know. I’ve probably taken leave of my senses. But one of them is obvious, and I’ve done it for several years now; I just haven’t announced it before: the Goodreads Reading Challenge.
Last year I set my goal at 175 books and read 186, so I more than reached it. This year, I’m setting my goal at 180. I have a feeling I may be reading some longer and more challenging books this year, so I don’t want to make my goal unreachable. If you’re interested, you can follow my progress throughout the year in the sidebar.
The other challenge I’m taking on is the PopSugar 2015 Reading Challenge. This challenge aims to diversify your reading. There are 50 entries, but since one is a trilogy, it’s 52 books. As you know if you read my blogging goals, I’m trying to read more books of my own choosing this year, and I’m not entirely sure how the PopSugar challenge will fit in with that goal, but I do want to stretch myself a bit as well. So rather than challenge myself to the entire list of 50 requirements, I’m going to go for half of that. That means I need to read one book that fits the challenge every two weeks. In July, I’ll see how I’m doing and possibly add some more requirements. To leave myself plenty of flexibility, I’m not going to specify which requirements – I’ll base it on my mood and what sounds like fun at the time. And every few months, I’ll try to let you know where I am with it.
Here’s the full PopSugar list. You can see a larger version on their website, as well as a link to a printable PDF.
