I had said I would read at least 2 books every month till my 30th birthday, but for my fifth 50 Book Challenge I’m going back to basics and challenging myself to read 50 books this year.
1. Choose an amount of books that you want to read in 2013 (e.g. 25, 50, 75, 100)
2. Read, read, read!It’s time to pick a reading goal for 2013!
There isn’t a rule about what type books these have to be so read anything you want (novels, short stories, non-fiction, graphic novels, school books…). You can make a list of the books you want to read before you start or you can just choose books as you go along.
To keep track of how much you’re reading, you can use the Goodreads Reading Challenge, create a list (on Tumblr, LiveJournal, LibraryThing, WordPress, your computer), write book reviews, post every book cover – it’s up to you. I personally like to create a 50 Book Challenge page, which I can update easily. You may want to use the #50 book challenge tag so that others can keep up with your progress. Feel free to use the above banner on your page!
However, although this is a quantifiable challenge, the most important thing is that you’re reading and that you’re having fun doing it.
