The 2018 Reading Challenge

If you have a reading goal for 2018, feel free to talk about it and keep track of it here!

The Goal:

The goal can be anything you want: 1 book in 2018, 10 books in 2018, 25 books in 2018, 50 books in 2018, 100 books in 2018, reading a certain series in 2018, reading a certain number of pages in 2018, reading the same book 50 times in 2018, etc. Your goal is whatever you want and whatever is challenging yet still fun for you. It's a personal challenge, not a contest. So you set your goal and go at your own pace.

The Books:

You can count or not count any books you want. If you want to count audio books, then do it. If not, then don't. If you want to count manga, then do it. If not, then don't. If you want to count magazines, then do it. If not, then don't. If you want to count books for school, then do it. If not, then don't. It's all up to you!

The Rules:

1. Follow KofK's rules.

2. Don't make fun of anyone for having a different goal than you. We all have different obligations, and priorities, and free time, etc, so all of our reading goals are going to be different, and that's ok. One person might easily finish a 500 page book in a few days, while someone else might struggle to finish 500 pages in a few months, and that's ok. We're not racing, rushing, or competing. We're motivating, encouraging, and having fun.

3. If you want to talk about something that happened in a book, put it in a spoiler.

Who Can Join:
Anyone! Just jump in say what your goal is!

Deadline for joining:
Feel free to join in any time before 2019!

I'm going to make my reading goal 30 books. I usually flounder between 15 and 30 each year but I need a hard goal to start pairing down my book collection. It is getting out of hand. I'm also a bit nervous as I'm a first-year teacher and that...is scary.

I'm still debating what I want my goal to be. I'm thinking 25-30ish.

Hmm, I've been slacking this year compared to the year before, aha.

Maybe I'll do 15 books this year (and another 15 books of the Bible)? That should be doable.

I'm going to set my goal at 30 this year, and I want at least 10 of them to be books that I own but have never read.
