2015 Challenge: Goodreads

25/50 books

Challenge Basics:  

Name: 2015 Goodreads Reading Challenge
Previous Hosts: Goodreads
Starts: January 1, 2015
Ends: December 31, 2015
Eligible Books: Any!

Why I'm Interested:  

I like keeping track of the books I read each year. Last year I set a goal for 60, bumped it down early on to 50 because I wanted to read more heavy historical books, but ended up reading 65 anyway. This year I'm going to try for 50 again because I liked the low pressure of an achievable challenge (it's so nice seeing "you're X books ahead of schedule!" instead of the dreaded "behind schedule" message).

  1. Oh, gosh!I get you on the pressure! I set to read 200 in 2014 like I did in 2013, but had to bump it down to 150 and then to 120 because work was nuts.

    I think I like the low pressure though, so I'm going to aim for 120 again ;) ... and maybe read lots of novellas...

    Anyway, good luck Small, and happy new year

    1. Wow I'm still super impressed with 120! It's all relative :) Novellas are a great way of bumping up the list. Good luck to you!

Because I am absolutely terrible about following through with blog awards, I can't in good conscience accept any more. Thank you very much for thinking of me though!
