I'm definitely pulling back on challenges and goals this year, as I want to focus
1. BookLikes/GoodReads challenge: 52 books
Even though I went over my challenge numbers for the last two years, I am pulling back because I feel like I am under pressure to finish every book I start so I can make the goal. One book a week feels doable and I will take more chances on longer works. Probably will be updated higher after the summer edition of COYER.
I made a non-fiction reading list to immerse myself in World War I in anticipation of the 100th anniversary of the Armistice in November 2018. I am not aiming to read all these books, but want to get to get to as many as possible, at least 25%. If you scroll down to the comments, Mark K makes some excellent suggestions to add to the list (one of which I already added to the main list).
3. 3x Bout of Books, 2x COYERs, and 2x 24 in 48 Read-a-thons
These were relaxed challenges that I've enjoyed in the past and felt really productive in my reading afterward. Dewey is too intense and I have a hard time trying to fit social media participation with reading, so I am bypassing those for 2018. The Pop Sugar challenge included too many prompts that I had to force myself to read. I am planning on participating in whatever game/challenge is going on here at BL, because I just can't quite you guys *XOXOXO*.
COYER Winter Switch: December 16, 2017 - March 9, 2018
Bout of Books Cycle 21: January 8 - 14, 2018
24 in 48 Read-a-thon Winter edition: January 27-28, 2018
I might end up dipping my toes into Broken Tune's women's right to vote project. Why are all the anniversaries of historical good stuff happening at once? It's hard out here for history buffs, lol.
