My Reading Challenges For 2017

Every year I love to join up with fellow readers in various challenges. I’ve been known to join 10 to 15 in previous years. This year it’s going to be just a few. These are the areas of reading that I really care about.

First of all is the GoodRead Challenge in which I keep track of the number of books I read.

I also like to keep track of how many books I’m reading from my local library. It’s important to me to support local libraries.

I began the Foodies Read Challenge several years ago and still love to join in each year.

I’ve been a part of this challenge ever since my friend at Beth Fish Reads took over the challenge. Although she no longer manages it, I still like to try to match my book titles to the various categories. Last year I only managed to get one, but I feel more confident this year. Wish me luck.

What’s In A Name?

Goal: 6

1. A number in numbers

2. A building

3. A title which has an ‘X’ somewhere in it

4. A compass direction

5. An item/items of cutlery

6. A title in which at least two words share the same first letter – alliteration!

    I don’t think I’ve been part of the Foodie challenge since you gave it up. Maybe I should join?

    Nan, My advice is to join in the Foodies Read challenge, but then I am biased. I like joining in, not necessarily to challenge myself to read more food related books, but to keep track of what I’ve read this year and to see what others are reading.

    (As you can see, I moved your comment. I don’t know what’s going on – probably some little glitch.)
