With my past dismal history of participating in challenges, I should not really take up any more challenges. But, let me leave the negatives of 2015 and move on to a more positive 2016. This year I am combining my love for books and challenges into one and participating in the Outdo Yourself Reading Challenge 2016.
2015 has been a great year for me with regards to books and all things related to books. I have always loved to read. But somehow, post marriage and then children, the reading habit fell by the way. It had fallen to the point of not reading anything at all. But, life was great and I didn’t miss a lot.
Since 2014 when I started using Twitter, I met a lot of like-minded readers who loved books to the extent of everything else. I must thank the twitter book club @TSBookClub which re-ignited my passion to read. Slowly and steadily I got back into the habit of reading. Though I have not recorded all my reads this year, it has been the year I read the maximum books.
Next year, I attempt to read 25 novels / anthologies calculating I can complete 2 books a month. At this point, I do not have a theme for my reads. My bookshelf is groaning under the weight of my TBRs and this will be a good opportunity to clear them. That puts me on the Level –
I’m on Fire!: read 16+ more books (or 4,000+ more pages)
Looking forward to the challenge. Those who want to participate, follow this link.
