I think I read too much. I completed the 2015 Reading Challenge, and Goodreads tells me I’ve read 66 books this year. (Here’s a summary of what I read.One of David C Cook’s books, Just Show Up, is actually the highest rated by the Goodreads community. Fun to see.)
It’s fitting that the 2016 Reading Challenge list is a bit shorter. I’ll still read a lot, but hopefully next year I’ll diversify my free time diversions a bit. Here’s my list, taken from Modern Mrs. Darcy.
A book published this year(Bloodline by Claudia Grey) A book you can finish in a day(The Sabbath: Its Meaning for Modern Man) A book you’ve been meaning to read(The Wise Man’s Fear) A book recommended by your local librarian or bookseller(Ready Player One) A book you should have read in school(The Aeneid) A book chosen for you by your spouse, partner, sibling, child, or BFF(The Robe by Douglas, recommended by Chris) A book published before you were born(Murder Must Advertise by Dorothy L. Sayers) A book that was banned at some point(The Giver by Lois Lowry) A book you previously abandoned(Daring Greatly by Brene Brown) A book you own but have never read(Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card) A book that intimidates you(The Brothers Karamazov) A book you’ve already read at least once(Sphere by Michael Crichton)
