Pop sugar 2015 Reading Challenge

A couple of weeks ago I reblogged a reading challenge.

I need to read more.

Firstly I thought wow there’s 52 books in this list. That’s one a week.

Then I thought ‘Ouch, too much spending!’

So rather than just posting it. A couple of days ago mid festivity season I thought I’d start by checking my book shelves for some books that I have that I haven’t read yet.

I found thirteen.


And they fitted some of the criteria.

I printed the list of books. I’ve marked them and written a list of titles. And I’ve read two already. Okay so I started before 1 Jan but I figure a good habit should start as soon as I can.


Plus, although I can read a book in a day, fifty two in a year is a bit spectacular.

I also think I can blog about the books I’ve read. Every blogger knows that subject material is always welcome!

Happy New Year!

What are your resolutions?

How do you achieve goals?

    Good luck in your reading challenge! I have so many to read, it’s a case of shoe horning in the time.

    Reading more is definitely on my list, but first I have to learn how to sit quietly for more than 3 minutes without jumping up and thinking about something I really must do at that very moment! Also doing more arty stuff is something else I want to do more of…
    Happy New Year and Happy blogging!

    Great selection. I envy your collection here. It feels so much more personal to read the actual book rather than the kindle version too. What a great challenge for the new year. Wishing you a happy new year full of great things.
