In keeping with my 2017 goals, this year I am embarking on my first ever reading challenge! I know, right, so exciting. Well, actually I did participate in the Goodreads reading challenge last year, but I didn’t get on board with it until October and I only committed to three books (you know, one a month for the rest of the year) so that doesn’t really count. Anyway, I’ve been scouring Pinterest in search of just the right one, and you know what? I didn’t like any of them (boo). And then I found just the one I was looking for.
Okay, so I know technically I’m a year behind on this. It appears this lovely blogger does a reading challenge every year, and she does have a new one up for 2017, buuut it looked complicated and scared me a little. I like this list better, and since it is my first challenge I figure I should go easy on myself. If this goes well maybe next year I’ll jump on board with the 2018 challenge.
In addition to this challenge, I have also committed on Goodreads to read 12 books this year. Since MMD’s reading challenge is for 12 books this will work out perfectly. Two commitments to the same goal? Clearly, I have to follow through. (That is how that works, right?) I haven’t decided exactly how I’m going to go about incorporating this challenge into my blog, but I do have a couple ideas, we’ll see how it goes.
Here’s to good books in 2017! And making time to read them.
