Happy (almost) New Year! What better way to kick off a year of reading with a new 2015 reading challenge? I’ve put together a checklist of 32 criteria for books, along with a printable, for the year.
As I’ve said before, I participated in the Empty Shelf Challenge in 2014. I read a total of 50 books. Here’s a pic of my full shelf now:
For 2015, I’ve set a goal of 50 books and created my own reading challenge! I’ve created a printable one, so please feel free to join me in 2015! I was inspired by this challenge, as well as a few other ones I found on Pinterest and some fun Twitter convos.
To start off the year, I’m also participating in Kami, Jenni, and Suey’s read-along of Elizabeth Gaskell’s “North and South” this January. If you’d like to join our Twitter and/or blog chats about it, please do!
Also, fellow bloggers Cassie and Jamie are hosting their very own 2015 Jody Hedlund Challenge! They are working their way through Jody’s books each month with a discussion post. I hope to join in on it sometime 🙂
Here’s my free printable checklist! Feel free to join in and use the hashtag #TGM2015ReadingChecklist on social media. If you do, please leave me a comment so I can keep up with your progress, too!
What a creative challenge!! Thanks for sharing! 🙂
Thank you, Jamie! Happy New Year!
Oh how fun! I did a lot of these challenges this past year but I guess that doesn’t count huh? I will definitely try my best! I’m looking forward to finding an author with my initials (RAG)…..
I’m so glad you’re joining in, Rayleigh! Yay for reading several of these last year. This way, we can keep up with a list 🙂 Yes, I think finding an author with the same initials will be the most challenging, but fun!
So cool! Definitely want to read more this upcoming year, too! Happy reading, Courtney.
Ganise, yes! We can always hope to “read more” 🙂 Happy New Year, friend!
Looks like Empty Shelf Challenge was a success! Your shelf looks amazing :). And I love the challenge you’ve put together– that’s an awesome printable! Looks like a fun list.
Thanks for the shout-out, Courtney! I so appreciate your support!
Why thank you! I’m happy to spread to Jody Hedlund love. That will be so fun!
Here is my recommendation for your book over 100 years old (1912): http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/miss-billys-decision-by-eleanor-h-porter-with-a-frontispiece-in-color-from-a-paint-by-henry-wadsworth-moore-eleanor-h-porter/1026188721?ean=2940020794955
Thank you for the recommendation! That one looks fun. I haven’t read any of her work before, but I do love the movie Pollyanna!
