The 2016 Reading Challenge is not nearly as intense as last year’s. Here are the categories:
A book published this year.
A book you can finish in a day.
A book you’ve been meaning to read.
A book recommended by your local librarian or bookseller.
A book you should have read in school.
A book chosen for you by your spouse, partner, sibling, child, or BFF.
A book published before you were born.
A book that was banned at some point.
A book that you previously abandoned.
A book you own but have never read.
A book that intimidates you.
A book you’ve already read at least once.
I’m excited for the challenge and I think it is very manageable – only 12 books, one of which has to be read in a day. Anyone want to play along??
There is another reading challenge underway in our household. Ava is participating in a 1000 Books Before Kindergarten program that the library at my old school has organized. Kevin and I have been reading to her at least a few times a week. She has no shortage of books – my mom (a librarian) has been keeping a database of all the books in Ava’s personal library. I think we’re up to nearly 200 books!
What are your reading goals for 2016?
