I like checking things off of lists, having a goal in mind, or reframing my current participation with an outside challenge to get me involved in a different way. Sign me up!
I have chosen these challenges:
- Tuesday's Wednesday 2014-reading-challenge (read 24 books from 24 different categories)
- Roof Beam Reader's TBR pile challenge (read 12 books that have been on your to-read list for over a year) My list
- Goodreads 2014 reading challenge (personally set goal of 60 books read)
I used to be really concerned about the rules of this thing, but who cares? If I read the book (ebook, paper, audio, children's, non-fiction, whatever) from cover to cover, then it counts. If I don't finish something, fine. I'd like to still keep a list of books I remove from the to-read list, so in a few years when I forget that I tried to read Lolita, I can look in my list and see why I didn't continue with the book. (Can you tell I love lists?)
Current Goodreads tally? 561 books
You know I will be adding title to the list. I'll take some work, but I'd like to get the list down to 500 by the end of the year.
I have participated in the Goodreads reading challenge since 2011.
