2016 Reading Challenge

To further recap my 2015 and start looking forward to 2016, here’s the reading challenge I mentioned yesterday. I’ve set (and exceeded) a reading goal on Goodreads the past few years, and am doing it again for 2016. (Set your 2016 goal on Goodreads! Mine is here.) It’s a simple total number of books challenge, so it’s really easy to track as long as you remember to mark the books as read and add a date.

In addition to this flat number goal, I’m going to make sure that I read at least one book during the year that helps me cross of each of the items listed below. Grab a copy of the list & join me! I’d love recommendations for a books to help me cross them off. (I’ll track my progress of the list on this page and by tagging them with 2016-sb-reading-challenge on Goodreads.)

  1. A book published in 2016
  2. A book you’ve always meant to read
  3. A banned book
