Reading Challenges


I am currently doing four reading challenges.  One with an open ended time frame, one with a 5 years plan (once I formulate the list), and the 2018 Goodreads challenge that almost everybody is doing.

The Reading around the world challenge.

This is a lifetime read challenge to try and read a book either a non fiction or travelogue about the country or fiction written by somebody who has lived there at least.

The Classics Club

I was thinking that I should try and read at least one classic a month  and then read this post by Jessie@Dwell in Possibility.  I do like a bit of serendipity in my life. Click the title to go to my list and any progress I have made (including links to any reviews I have done)

Pop Sugar 2018 Reading Challenge
