Reading in 2018

Posted in Tally at 10:05 pm by Amber

2018 should be an interesting year of books for me. Last year I set a GoodReads Reading Challenge Goal of 52 books which I literally finished on 12/31/2017.

Some of my librarian friends mentioned the Book Riot Read Harder Challenge back in early 2017 and I joined the forums but never visited. This year, I’m in two book clubs and I feel trying to do the Read Harder Challenge will let me be a bit more focused on what I read.

In one book club, the hostess picks the book we’ll read so when we meet up we usually end up having dinner, discussing the book, discussing what’s happening in our lives, and then we talk about our current reading picks. As readers, we’re usually reading another book not long after finishing the book club pick.

In my newest book club, we pick any book we want and talk about it. We’re strongly considering using the Book Riot tasks to focus what we’re reading.

My reading challenge this year is 54 books (I know there will likely be a handful of graphic novels) with more intentions.
