Default 2024 Reading Challenge   #1  
hello again!!!

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 i've been hosting this since 2018. it's great fun ... 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. =)

And while we're reading, please feel free to chat about books, your day, anything!

if you ever have any questions, go ahead and post it. the only silly question is the one you don't ask. :D

reserved... just 'cause it's good to have another post reserved. as soon as i don't reserve one, i'll need it for something.... right, Murphy? XD

(and as long as i keep reserving a post that i don't need, i won't need it. right?)

Oof, how is it already another year?

My challenge this year will be 60 books. The library has a 50 book challenge for adults this year (with a separate prize for staff even!) so 50 for that, plus 10 not part of it.

Finished one book yesterday and have a handful at home that are either about 1/2 done or are really small.

I really have to stop just checking books out because they look good. I have too many at home already. Lol
Just checked out another last night.

I mean...yeah, but only twice. And I also have an Etsy shop to maintain so I don't really have as much time as I could otherwise for reading...lol.
And also only if the books don't have holds. And almost 100% of what I have are new books, so are likely to have holds when I need thw renew. xP

Same really. And in reality, most of the books I have aren't that popular so I doubt they'll have holds on them unless booktok and bookstagram suddenly shifts from spicy romantasies to just straight modern fantasy anyway.

yeah, i get that.
i have a series on my to-read list that's a paperback series, the Wishcraft series - the last book is from 2019, so i doubt people are suddenly going to be reading it XD
but my new books are Dirty Thirty from Janet Evanovich, and another Patricia Briggs book out this year. and the last two books in the latest Warriors series
