For 2014, I read 20 books in total. Not bad but I want to raise the bar this year and read much more then that. I have set my Goodread's 2015 challenge at 50 books. A bit of an over shot compared to last year. BUT! I have challenges this year. Simple ones that I've taken from other lists of challenges, some I added my self but still its an average sized list. So, I have only three rules for myself for this list of challenges. RULES, #2a0847 1. One Book per challenge: Meaning if I choose one book for a challenge, that is the only challenge I can use it for. 2. One Challenge, two books MAX: Meaning I can read two different books that correspond to one challenge, but no more then two(Unless it's the Trilogy challenge). 3. Deadline 11:59 pm on December 31, 2015: I have to finish all of the challenges before January 1, of 2016. Pretty simple I think. Now, I'll list all of the challenges I've come up with, for myself. CHALLENGES, #2a0847 A book that became a movie A popular author’s first book A nonfiction book A book you own but have never read A book you can finish in a day A book from your childhood A book you started but never finished A book with a love triangle A book set in a different country A book that made you cry A book set in the future A book from an author you love that you haven’t read yet A classic romance A mystery or a thriller A memoir A book based on a true story A banned book A trilogy A graphic novel A book by an author you've never read before A book with a one word title A book by a female author A book by a male author A book published this year A book based entirely on its cover A book with a number in the title A book with a color in the title A book of short stories A Book Over 500 Pages I think that's a healthy list, but if you have any Challenges that you think would be good for my list let me know. And would anyone join me in doing this Year long challenge? I might make a group for it so we can all chat about what our choices for each challenge will be and talk about our reading so far for it. I am very excited for the new year for reading!
