Reading Goals 2015

In 2014 I signed up for two reading challenges: Tuesday's Wednesday 2014-reading-challenge (read 24 books from 24 different categories) and Roof Beam Reader's TBR pile challenge  (read 12 books that have been on your to-read list for over a year)  My list

For the 2014 reading challenge, the rules were too convuluted for me and involved forcing choices on myself, and adding books to my list, instead of stitcking to the books that had been on my list for a while.

This year, I'm signing up again for the TBR challenge.  I think this challenge best fits my goals and this time, I tried to choose more of a mix of titles. I did end up picking 4 books over 400 pages, but I knocked a few off that were almost 1,000 pages, so I hope that will help me complete the challenge.

2015 TBR Pile Challenge Book List (my official list post)

  1. In the Woods (Dublin Murder Squad, #1) by Tana French
  2. The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt
  3. Moby-Dick; or, The Whale by Herman Melville
  4. East Is East by T.C. Boyle
  5. Everything Is Illuminated by Foer, Jonathan Safran
  6. My Life in France by Julia Child

 Two alternates:
