2015 Reading Challenges
I already read a lot. I'm doing a Master's degree in English literature. Over the last year and a half of my degree, though, I've found that my reading for pleasure has been severely lacking. With a pseudo-New Year's resolution in mind, I've decided to sign up for a few Reading Challenges in an effort to force myself to read for pleasure (slightly oxymoronic, I know).
The Book Riot 2015 Read Harder Challenge is really what started me on this endeavour. I'm really hoping to complete this challenge while still fulfilling the other challenges that I've signed up for. What I am really doing, I suppose, is making this Read Harder Challenge, even harder!
From there I decided to look for a few more interesting challenges that also include prizes. Who doesn't like prizes?! So I added the following:
Mount TBR Reading Challenge over at My Reader's Block. I'd say I have about 200+ titles on that list, but I'm limiting myself to the "Pike's Peak" (12 books) level for this one.
Ethereal 2015 over at Riedel Fascination. This challenge is outside my typical reading comfort zone and therefore intriguing! I'm just signing up for the "Intuition" (5-10 books) category, but I am really looking forward to it.
Reading Challenge Addicts 2015 should be a fun way to track my progress. I'm only officially signing up for three challenges which puts me in their "Easy as Pie" (1-5 challenges) category.
If I can find the time, I may add Random House Canada's Reading Bingo Challenge simply because I'm Canadian and want to read more Canadian literature. I really like this idea and if I ever get myself back on track in the blogging world, I'd like to host a challenge like this one myself.
Happy reading, folks! Here's hoping I've inspired some of you to take on a Reading Challenge or two!
