2017 | Reading Challenge

Monday, February 20, 2017

I miss reading.

I worked at a bookstore for 5 years (RIP Borders), and I used tp read all the time. I slowed down my reading when got really into running/losing weight/TTC about 5 years ago. Priorities...

Even though I still need to get back into running/losing weight again BAD; I hope to just balance my life better in 2017.

I've been getting back on my Goodreads account lately. I found out real fast that I am soooo out of the book loop. I added a bunch of books that have been released the while I've been MIA.

The reason for this blog post is a pinterest post that I found. After looking at this list, I thought to myself, "you can totally do this". Some of these are going to challenge for me, hence it's a CHALLENGE.  :) I'm just really glad my college roommate became a librarian. #1 is in the BAG! I've been trying to work through a 12-book book series. I'm on book 6. It's a historical fiction series, and the books are not going to fit in to a lot of these challenges. I'm also going to have to look for through my TBR (to be read).

I'm going to try to update this list every quarter and see what I've accomplished. I think this will really help me move forward with my reading. I will be using books to mark off multiple items of the challenge.

Please join me if you would like. It's just February. :)
