Reading Challenges

I like to do many yearly reading challenges that are aimed to broaden my reading horizons–as well as motivate me to read all of the many books I’ve bought & not yet read. I’ll use this landing page as a summary page, but specific challenge links are available below or in the menu at the top of this page. Click them to find out more about each challenge & see some of my anticipated reads!

My reading challenge philosophy is that books can be counted for multiple challenges–but I do not double dip for the same challenge. For example, if I read a book that fits 1 prompt in 52 Books in 52 Weeks, and also fits a prompt in Beat the Backlist, I’ll count it in both. I will not, however, count 1 book for 2 prompts in the Beat the Backlist challenge. I tend to read at least 100 books a year, so it’s doable.

I set my personal reading goal every year for 100+ books. As long as I hit 100, I’m happy–but also, I try to care more about the quality of my reading than the quantity–and I have a lot of BIG books on my TBR this year.
