If you recall I did a reading challenge last year:
Thanks to it I read a total of 26 books.
It was fun but a bit too restrictive to me...
True, I was able to pick any book I wanted to read for each category, but it was sometime difficult to find a book I actually wanted to read, that fit the category, and was inexpensive... because, too be honest, I'm cheap, LOL!
I would rather read free or cheap books...
If I purchase a book it's usually $5.99 or cheaper (usually cheaper) with a rare exception here and there...
Book Bub is where I find most of my books... it's free and you get a new e-mail everyday w/ a list of free and cheap books you can download on your e-reader or phone reading app.
I've found most of the books I read later in the 2015 Reading challenge there:
Anyway, back to the original topic:
I decided this year to "challenge" myself again but w/ a less restrictive goal:
12 books in 12 months.
Short, simple, doable!
I originally didn't want to give myself a number, just read as many as I could...
But then Good Reads sent me an e-mail asking me if I wanted to "set a goal" of books to read in 2016 and I really like being able to see my progress on a chart, so I went for it!
12 books in 12 months...
That's not a lot at all... and honestly I think I can read much more, but I don't want to feel forced to do so just to meet my goal, especially since I've been scrapping, and art journaling again!
Currently I am reading this (see IG post journaling under photo):
Another year and more books to read... I'm excited!
Are you doing a reading challenge this year?
I'd love to hear about it!
FYI - In an attempt to reach all my readers, on Blogger and IG, I may at times post duplicate content.
Along w/ links back and forth.
If you are a follower/reader of both, please don't feel it necessary to comment on both!
But if you do, it is much appreciated!
