2018 Book Challenge

2018 Book Challenge

I’m not the best at book clubs, I’m not great at writing reviews, mostly because I just want to read more. Gobble up the books, the audiobooks, the Kindle books – all the books. But I really want to read quality in 2018 over quantity.

Reading more is always great, but sometimes I get stuck reading the familiar and comfortable. This year I tried to push myself to read things outside of my favorite genres.
I’m just putting this out there if you want to participate with me for 2018 that is great.

The objective is to chose a minimum of the 12 categories below to challenge and inspire you to branch outward from your normal reading. 24 categories are provided to allow for flexibility and the feeling of freedom.

Our to-be-read lists will grow and multiply.
