Ronda Nichols | 320 comments My personal challenge this year is 30 - I had to drop it down. I've been at 40 the last two years and have not made it that far. I also joined the A-Z challenge so that must keep me in for at least 26 right!!!

First book for the year is Little Woman (my daughter is thinking of auditing for the musical and I want to know if there is a good part for her!)

Vikki-Booksie Best of luck! I love Little Women and will be on my list at some point this year I’m sure

I read Little Women many years ago and loved it then. I don't do re-reads because there are just too may wonderful books, too many for just 1 lifetime. But I've heard, and it sounds quite logical, that your appreciation for a book varies according to age and stage of life. So maybe I wouldn't love it now, but I sure did then and it's a book I want to keep (selling many of my books cause I simply don't have the space for them). I hope your daughter succeeds in her audition for the musical, sounds awesome!

Wishing you the best of luck with your goal Ronda & a very happy reading/New Year!!

Ronda Nichols | 320 comments Thanks ladies! I did not have a very successful reading time for January :( I was super busy and had a hard time finding time. I loved Little Women :) I read it a long time ago and was looking forward to a reread of it...

Fingers crossed that February will be better for you.
It has been quite some time for me too that I read Little Women. Remember that I loved it!

Blagica  | 12028 comments 4/30 is a great start do you have a book that stands out this year? Also just an FYI your thread says 2019 not 18 if you need help fixing that let me know.

I seem to have a problem with new years :) LOL!!! I fixed it. I put 2015 for my students the other day and it took ALL day before they even caught it. I don't think I have a favorite so far from the year... However, Hidden Figures was fantastic.

Hope you're enjoying your reads Ronda! That's way more important than how many you are reading :)

Veda  (moonchild63) | 40 comments 4 out of 12 💃- considering signed up recently - that's awesome!

Yet, it Bedlam (Young Sherlock Holmes, #3.5) by Andy Lane took me longer then it should have for a short story (35 pages in all) because I was confused by 'how' it fit in the series of Andrew Lane 'Young Sherlock Holmes,' I kept putting it down & the 2018 Reading Challenge had me pick it & the pace up!
