Fran | 11003 comments 2018 Create-Your-Own Reading Challenge:

With the year ending, most of us have started looking forward to the new year and have some reading goals we really want to reach.

This is the place to Create-Your-Own-Reading Challenge for 2018.

I've used the acronym SMART to explain how you can put yours together.

SPECIFIC - Sure we have goals and resolutions, but for this challenge you need to be specific on what you will read. Are you going for all classics, books of a specific author, books you already own, etc? You set the parameters, but make sure there is one.

MEASURABLE - Please don't say as many as I can read, please :). Knowing the titles in advance is not required, but you need to put a number of books as your goal. This is a requirement to participate in this challenge.

ATTAINABLE - Be realistic for this challenge. I know how we can go overboard, but you know, how many hours you read in a day. Do not set yourself up to fail. On this note, you are only allowed to have one Create-Your-Own Reading Challenge entry.

REWARDING - A tenet I follow everytime I create and/or join a challenge, is that it should be fun. This is not a punishment, but an activity that you really want to do. You get a better chance of completing it, if you are enjoying yourself.

TIME-BOUND - This challenge is good for the whole year. If you want to set a different start and end date, its up to you, but make sure I can see the duration period of your challenge.

Here is the suggested format:

I'd like to make a dent in these poor guys I've been neglecting so I propose to read 10% of them this year. That's about 40 books from my kindle library & 40 from regular ole paperback/hardcovers.

Challenge Description: I have three specific goals in mind—
(1) Use my Kindle Unlimited subscription more consistently

(3) Donating to charity bundles is great, but those books are collecting electronic dust

With respect to the above, each month I want to read one Kindle Unlimited book, one physical book, and one charity bundle book.

Backlog sources for some of these goals:
- Monthly Book Club

Cyliena | 236 comments I made it!!! Completed in post #18. There were a few rocky months, but I was determined to meet these goals. I discovered a handful of superb books, plenty of good ones, and a few terrible ones.

Challenge Title: The Power of Three


Duration: January 1 – December 31
Number of Books: 36
Challenge Description: I have three specific goals in mind—
(1) Use my Kindle Unlimited subscription more consistently
(2) Don't just decorate shelves with physical books: read them, too
(3) Donating to charity bundles is great, but those books are collecting electronic dust

With respect to the above, each month I want to read one Kindle Unlimited book, one physical book, and one charity bundle book.

COMPLETED: 36/36
