2018 Reading Challenge

Each year since 2013 I have done a reading challenge, of my own.

This is the main page each year for the challenge. At the end of the year I will publish all of them at once in one post as the archive for the year so it can be found in a search.

 Want to do your own challenge?  They can be done in a few different ways,

  1. By the number of books to read in the year like GoodReads does (but a friend and I don’t agree on however they time it when you are ‘so many books behind your challenge.)
  2. have a theme of what to read for the year (be it all one Genre, author or plot type)
  3.  Reading ‘prompt’ challenges.  These are ideas to read like in this search pick one that looks interesting. There are ones for adults, ones in General as well as ones for children. (You can also find some of the ideas I liked most at the end of this page)
  4. Read a certain amount of books before you can buy yourself a new one. (mine is usually five, see below how I did myn 2013 reading challenge in the link below)

This year I need to get some of what I have of series read… so I may do what I did back in 2013 when I read 30 to 40 something books!

(sadly I know I won’t get that many read although it would put a nice dent in my pile here! Wish I could read a book a week or even every 2 weeks.)I have to read more than one book to get another! It was for every 5 books I could get one  though I would cheat sometimes and it would be at least a minimum of  3 read, then I’d replace them with one
