2019 Reading Challenge

My 2019 Reading Challenge is a list of 50 books. I have a fair amount to still read carried over from last year’s challenge, quite a few of which I actually bought on Kindle but didn’t get around to reading. So I’d like to read those as a priority. I’ve then added a few series continuations, and some non-fiction Christian books for a change.

I will probably set my Goodreads goal to 30 books again. It’s a number I can easily meet, but I like being able to track how many books I’ve read.

My aim is to read the books I already own, and to read some of the books that have been on my list for a couple of years, and not get distracted by too many shiny new books.

We’ll see how that goes! Here’s the list:

      One year I quite fancy trying one of those challenges where you read books from different categories (women writer, published in year x, on a particular subject etc).
