Default 2018 Reading Challenge   #1  
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, and had a great time! (thanks Moonshadow!)

so, (snagging from last year's thread), 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!

I'm trying to get back into reading more, and I think I have some books I haven't read in years or at all. So my challenge will be to get those read. xD


Went to grab a coffee, came back with a bag of 67 Cubix Cubes instead.

Oh snap, I forgot this was starting again!
I'm gonna try to read only 20 books this year because I definitely didn't make it to 30 in 2017.

In 2018 I would like to read 60 books, but with the stipulation that they cannot be rereads! I'm really bad about reading the same few books over and over. Time to branch out!

Book List:
Issuing myself a personal challenge of posting at least 10 times in non-game related threads per day.

Think I can get to 5k total posts by the end of the year?

I haven't actually read that series yet, but I love the Xanth series and the Apprentice Adept series.

But then I love puns...

We're all mad here.
Well, I guess I could go easy on myself and try and read more than last year, but given I read very few, that might be harder than it looks. I'll need to migrate my old challenge lists over here. Or perhaps, I'll just keep a list this time and keep track of my aging challenges on paper at home.

Okay, here's my thing!
Books (at least one!) must be completed in the month they are marked for.

~ QMC's 2018 Reading Challenge ~

1. January: Nine Lessons I learned from My Father - Howe
2. February: Where the Red Fern Grows - Rawls
3. March: Vas: An Opera in Flatland - Tomasula & Farrell
Big Red - Kjelgaard
4. April: The Princess Diarist - Fisher
The Hellbound Heart - Barker
5. May: The Whispered Tales of Graves Grove - Anthology
6. June: Great Dog - Cali
7. July: A Boy Called Bat - Arnold
My Friend Dahmer - Backderf
The Skeleton Tree - Lawrence
8. August: Chase - Barclay
Ungifted - Gorman
9. September: Mary Who Wrote Frankenstein - Baily
10. October: The Land of Forgotten Girls - Kelly
11. November: Tales from the Inner City - Tan
Collision: Stories - Breukelaar - abandoned
The Darkest Dark - Hadfield
Drumheller Dinosaur Dance - Heidbreder
12. December: The Last Wish - Sapkowski
finish what's UNfinished!
