It’s going to be a big year for change with a new human and a new place to update.
I’m setting it to 52 books. There will be a lot of children’s books because I plan on reading to little man a lot but I’m hoping to knock out some adult books as well.
I’ll probably devote more time to ebooks (one-handed) and YA since those go by quickly. I might dabble in romance since that’s been getting a resurgence.
The casual challenges I’ll be participating in this year:
If I finish any of them? Great! If I don’t, no big deal. There is some overlap between some challenges and my own goals so that’s helpful.
Since it’s 2020, my personal challenge will be to check off a book from each of the following categories:
- Author is a person of color
- Author is LGBT+
- Author is a woman
- Celebrity memoir
- Children’s book
- Collecting dust
- Graphic novel
- Library book
- Movie or TV show
- Mythology or fairytale
- Part of a series
- Star Wars
I’ve enjoyed doing a deeper dive into the new Star Wars EU via the books and would like to do more of that. Dust is a book I’ve had a long time and cover is what you think.
According to the Freakonomics documentary, being the kind of parent who buys parenting books means you’ll probably do OK. Imagine how good I could be if I read them!
I’m considering creating a shortlist of 20 books I want to get to in 2020. The list isn’t yet done and I’m not sure how good of an idea this really is. I may scrap it. We’ll see.
