The MobileRead Annual Reading Challenge, 2017!
#1  pdurrant 12-02-2016, 08:42 AM
For the 8th year, MobileRead has an Annual Reading Challenge!

But unlike most reading challenges, for this one you make up your own target, and then track your progress through the year.

Maybe you would like to read a certain number of pages this year, finish a certain number of books, concentrate on a specific genre, or deplete your ever-growing TBR list.

If you'd like to join in, reserve a post in the 2017 Reading Challenge List Thread. In this post you should set out your 2017 challenge, and track your progress (by editing your post) through the year.

You can discuss what goal(s) you might set yourself in the 2017 Reading Challenge Discussion Thread. Once the year starts, you can share your successes or ask for sympathy about your disappointments.

Above all, remember that this is just a fun activity that some of us have enjoyed doing in the past. Many of us have found reading challenges to be an entertaining way to set goals for ourselves, get ideas for books, and see what others are reading.

Whatever you do, please do not worry about whether or not you will complete your challenge for 2017.

I want to thank you, again, Paul for taking the time to set up and moderate the Annual Reading Challenge threads. Your work and dedication are greatly appreciated!

My goal for 2017 is to read. Read, read, read.

As a recently returned college student, full-time substitute teacher, and mother of teens, it is easy to let everyday life take over even the simplest of pleasures. This was the case in 2016. I concentrated on everything else and let my joy of leisure reading slip by the wayside.

So, while I do have a challenge or two in which I'd like to participate, my main goal for 2017 is to just read!
