It’s almost the new year, which means it’s time to reset our reading goals.

I always tried to surpass my goal from the previous year, I’m thinking this year it will be set at 250, I read more than that in 2019 so hopefully I can do it again.

Sometimes I find it very difficult to read a variety of books. I usually stick to one or two genres, or even maybe just a few different authors.

Do you find that you have the same problem?

We’ve made this easier by creating a *NEW* 2020 reading challenge.

I’ve compared previous reading challenges and thought pretty hard about this one. Hopefully this will broaden yours, and my, reading horizons. 🙂

  • A book published the year you were born
  • Top shelf, book number 7
  • A book with an ugly cover
  • A self published book
  • A pink book
  • A book written by multiple authors
  • A book nominated for an award
  • A book you previously abandoned
  • A book your mom (parent) loves
  • A book you chose based on the cover
  • A book set in a country you’d like to visit
  • The first book you see when walking into a store (bookstore, grocery store, kindle store, etc.)
  • A book swapped with a friend
  • A book by your favorite author
  • A book with a title that starts with the first letter of your name
  • A book that is over 100 years old
  • A children’s chapter book
  • A choose your own adventure book
  • A debut novel
  • That book you should have read in highschool
  • A Steven King novel
  • A single word title
  • Set in multiple points of view
  • On Oprah’s book club list
  • A book recommended by another author
  • A graphic novel
  • A book you saw someone reading in public
  • About mental health
  • Book everyone says is terrible
  • A book all about food

Please remember is it one book per “challenge.” Meaning you cannot count your 100 year old book as your debut novel, and so on. That’s cheating. 😉

Get a jump start by printing out our 2020 reading challenge and Googling the books you’ll be reading.
