Reading Challenges for 2016

Wishing everyone a very Happy and healthy New Year!

A New year and new challenges ahead!



My overall goal is to read 350 books in 2016. I will keep a running total here as well as on Goodreads.(In 2015, I listed the books on Goodreads but did not keep up here. I resolve to do better! But I surpassed my goal of 350 books in 2015 – by 8))


Here are the challenges I am joining for 2016

  1.  Modern Mrs. Darcy Reading Challenge


Hosted by Modern Mrs Darcy

12 categories, 12 books


2.  PopSugar’s 2016 Ultimate Reading Challenge

 This is a new one for me. I hope to read all 40 books from a diverse list of categories.

Check here for the categories.


3.  Mount TBR Reading Challenge

Mount TBR 2016

I have attempted this the past few years but my TBR pile never seems to decrease! If I stopped buying books it would help I am sure.

My goal is to read at least 2 TBR books a month so I plan to climb Mt. Blanc!

Check here for details.

My goal is to read 100 picture books next year (including non-fiction picture books as well.)

    • Thanks! A number of those were picture books though. Also I am retired so have a bit more time on my hands. But it was a good year for reading for sure. Lots of variety.
