Hello, everyone! My name's Sarah, and I'm the host/creator of #Ampersand2019. I'm hoping to get my physical TBR collection down to around 100 books by the start of 2019, so I'll be using this challenge to (hopefully) wipe out half of the remaining books.

Pretty sure each prompt fits more than one book on my TBR, so I'll see what I'm in the mood for throughout the year!

Dana Cristiana (silvermoon1923) Hello! I'm Dana, I'm a 22 years old student and I love reading since I was little.

I love Sarah's book photo challenge from Bookstagram, and because I have so many books that I want to read, I'd love participationg in this reading challenge as well.

Thank you for creating this group, Sarah!


Stef (Noveltea Corner) (novelteacorner) | 1 comments Hey, I'm Stef and I'm from Melbourne. I have an on-going goal for myself to read books within 12 months of purchasing them, but I'm also up for other book challenges, too! I also talk a lot about books on my youtube channel.

I'm looking forward to tackling the #Ampersand2019 reading challenge next year.

Hello Stef. I just started following you on Instagram. You have a beautiful feed.

Amy (ms_voraciousreader) (ms_voraciousreader) | 1 comments Hi everyone, I'm Amy from Brisbane. I very easily fall into a reading rut, so I find challenges are a great way of trying to broaden my reading. I've been dabbling with bookstagram around my demanding work and uni schedule.

Andria Sedig (petrichorandparchment) | 2 comments Hi friends,
I'm Andria and I currently live in California USA. I teach middle school and am working to really get my TBR to fit on less than three shelves (ideally one would be great, but ya know). I also am really trying to diversify the books I read this year and this challenge seemed right up my alley!

My instagram is instagram.com/petrichorandparchment

Looking forward to getting to know everyone!

Aimee (daisyreadthat) Hi everyone! I’m aimee, from Newcastle NSW. I’m on insta - Instagram.com/daisyreadthat

I have a TBR of over 200 books (plus at least 20 2019 releases already on my radar) so I really needed some motivation to get through my shelves and read the books!

Camilla Andersen (baagoe) | 9 comments Hi! I'm Camilla and I live in Denmark. I'm a history student so my reading can vary, but I love to dig into a whole other world. This will be my first reading challenge, so I will just try and dive into it!

Brenda (sassyred37) | 5 comments Hello everyone. My name is Brenda. I love reading, I taught myself to read around 4 years old. This challenge sounds so interesting and fun. I love all kinds of genres, but I am really enjoying YA.

Lauren (AWriterCanDream) (awritercandream) | 1 comments Hi everyone, I'm Lauren (AWriterCanDream) from North Carolina. I read mostly YA fantasy and a little contemporary mixed in. I'm excited for this challenge and getting my own tbr under control before I end up in yet another bookstore.

Jackie Sedgwick | 50 comments Hello! My name is Jackie! I love to read! Mostly YA, but I like a little of everything! I’m excited to knock off some books that have been just chilling on my TBR.

message 12: by Juliana (new)

Juliana | 25 comments Hello there! I'm Juliana, a Canadian living in Perth, Australia. I have more than 200 books on my TBR pile and I love reading challenges, so I thought I'd join in. I mainly read Sci Fi and Fantasy, although I'm willing to give almost any book a try. There are very few books that I have abandoned mid-read!

Carissa (carissareads) | 19 comments I'm Carissa! I'm an almost-25-year-old from Washington state and have been following Sarah for a while now and participating in her challenges for several months and when I saw this reading challenge, I jumped on it!

message 14: by Ingrid (new)

Ingrid Strand | 8 comments Hello! I am Ingrid and I am from Norway. My goal for 2019 is at least 26 books. I have picked out 25 of Sarah's prompts and added one of my own (read a banned book) and look forward to a great year of books and reading.

Inga Lady Of Bookland (ladyofbookland) | 1 comments Hi, I'm Inga, a Latvian living in Finland. My goal for 2019 is to read 80 books, and I have joined 12 different reading challenges, this is one of them :) I enjoy the most YA fantasy books and sometimes YA/NA contemporary romances.
I guess I'll try to do at least 45 prompts from this challenge.

message 16: by Stina (new)

Stina (stinalyn) | 21 comments Hi, everybody! I just now found my way to this group, but I started on the challenge at the beginning of the year. I'm having a great time so far and making some good progress on my TBR. Though I suppose it's a little hard to tell, as I'm a book hoarder from a long line of book hoarders. I was literally born with a TBR.

I'm a writer and musician in Northern Colorado, and my Goodreads goal this year is to read 98 books. I'm also doing a bunch of other reading challenges, so I expect I'll exceed that goal by a fair bit.
