Every January, I set a reading goal for the coming year. There are lots of ways to challenge yourself to read more, and just as many ways to track your progress. I like to use the Goodreads Reading Challenge – it keeps records of when I read a book, my reviews and ratings, how many books I’ve read thus far that year. The only thing I don’t like about the GRC is that it’s a tad difficult to include re-reads of books.
With so many possible parameters for setting a yearly reading goal, everyone seems to do it a little differently. What about you? Do you set a reading goal for yourself?
Do you simply say, like me, “I want to read x number of books this year”? Do you count re-reads in your progress or only new-to-you reads? How about categories? Some bookworms follow a list like this one from Bethany House. They pick books with a certain setting, or a particular kind of narrator, or that belong to a specific genre….
The possibilities are endless, so why not participate in a reading challenge this year? Go on, get reading! 🙂
