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

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. 😉
