2016 Reading Challenge

READING CHALLENGE
Pantone®’s Color of the Year 2016: Rose Quartz & Serenity

Welcome to 2016! Ha. 10 days inactive and has the audacity to return like nothing happened!

Anyway, this is a welcome post as well as a quick update: I’ve only read one book in 2016 as of this writing, and my book buying ban is still on. Today, it’s all about reading goals!

As much as I want to, I’ve never been one to participate in reading challenges. Being a college student is not a walk in the park; this semester, I’m working on both my dissertation and internship. I just never had the time! It doesn’t help that I’m a mood reader either. I tend to read whatever and whenever I want. I never force myself to do something I don’t feel like doing and ends up lying on the sofa, watching tv shows and movies, playing with my dog, and all sorts of unproductivity. But when I do want to read, I stare at my unread books, pick up something I’m in the mood for, and just bam.

Yes, that’s how I do it.

But, now, I just realised there are so many books out there in the wild that I need to get into and I should not waste my time by being unproductive.

My 2016 reading goal is to simply read moreRead as much as possible, read at least 2 chapters a day, and read outside my genre.

But to up my reading game, I decided to combine reading challenges by POPSUGAR and Tim Challies to create one that is achievable by me (I can’t be too ambitious and take both challenges, can I?). I did this by writing each challenge on a piece of paper, folded them in half, put them in different jars, picked 20 from POPSUGAR’s and 5 from Challies’.

I’m so proud to say I didn’t cheat while making this list. Not even once!

Here’s what I came up with:

I’ll be updating you with my progress, and at the end of the year I’ll show you with an accomplished list… hopefully. Ha.

Help me by suggesting any book that fits a certain challenge and let me know if you’re going to take this reading challenge with me!
