2019 Reading Challenge
i set myself a reading challenge every year, which is to read more books than the previous year. 2017 was the first year i did this on Trisphee, (i had a great time! thanks Moonshadow!) and last year i had fun hosting... so here we are again!

so, (snagging from previous threads), set a challenge for yourself: read 50 books, read only the books you have at home that you haven't read yet, read a specific genre, read only non-fiction books... whatever you choose.

Your first post should contain your challenge, and use a spoiler to indicate how you are progressing in meeting that challenge. i use a spoiler for my booklist. =)

Please feel free to chat about books, your day, anything!

my reading challenge: in 2018, i read 37 books. my goal is to read more than that.... Goal Completed, and still going!

for my information:

Kaderin Triste 12-27-2018 03:26 PM

Hmmm...I did pretty abysmal last year. I think this year, my goal will be...only 15 books. *Was only gonna try for 12, one per month, but I actually have a lot of in progress books, so I should be able to maybe finish a couple of those off in a month.

I was hoping this would be here! I flaked out and forgot.

My challenge this year is to read (for challenge credit) only the books I already own! (Christmas presents count. ;)) For extra fun, I've wrapped them all so it's going to be something of a surprise which ones I end up reading and in what order.

trystan830 01-03-2019 02:03 PM

off to a good start! i read I Work at a Public Library, by Gina Sheridan in a day! heh. fun little stories about library patron. most made me stare at the page and go "really??" at end though, i think my allergies were acting up, it was really dusty where i was reading it...

Quiet Man Cometh 01-06-2019 04:32 AM

Really? I want to read that! I'm hoping to get some experience in a public library this semester.

trystan830 01-06-2019 02:41 PM

heh, have fun!

here's an excerpt i posted on my instagram....


Quiet Man Cometh 01-08-2019 03:18 AM

Hee hee.

I like reading job stories. Some stuff can get a little odd, and people can be weird about anything.

trystan830 01-08-2019 12:22 PM

check out - highly entertaining, even if it does make you want to smash your head into the desk more than once....

Quiet Man Cometh 01-09-2019 02:32 AM

I hate that expression. And it's always cited by the most irritating customers.

Will totally check it out!

trystan830 01-09-2019 02:08 PM

agreed - the customer is not always right.

>->; I should probably read more often..I didn't read a lot at all last year...
Can I join the reading challenge? :[ I have quite a few things I've not gotten around to reading and even got two books for Christmas.
<x[ I've been neglecting the book book books. Like finishing Frankenstein finally,
and re-reading a collection of short stories that I read a long time ago in Jr. High, and also getting around to reading the harry potter series in order this time...

trystan830 01-11-2019 10:03 PM
