For the last 2 years I’ve set my reading goal to be 35 books. I surpassed that goal last year, totalling 43 books. Before the end of this year is out, I’ll have reached more than 50. (I’ve discontinued my book pages here in favor of the Good Reads button on the side).
I’d like to change things up a bit for next year and make more of a challenge. I plan to read 15 classics and as many other books as I choose. I have not defined this challenge for myself beyond that, yet. I’ve thought about making it 5 modern classics, 5 poetry or essay type classics and 5 pre-war classics. But, as of yet, I’m undecided.
I’ve also thought about selecting the 15 books ahead of time, as a “mandatory” list. Or, I could just wing it as read whatever classic I feel like reading at the time.
Any suggestions, thoughts or ideas? Any book suggestions?
