Once upon a time I did this reading challenge where I had to read a book from an author from every state. As in where they are born, not where they live. Sounded easy and fun…..it was not! Yes I did read a couple of books just because of the state and they turned out to be great, but I also read some pretty bad books just to cross off the state. It turned reading into a chore almost, but I am now able to claim “I have read a book by in author in every state.”
While the challenge was not fun for me it did get me to read. That is what inspired this challenge. It isn’t about reading x books for y…it’s about reading books that I enjoy and feeling like I accomplished something. I have built the challenge to have different mountains to climb so that I hit mini goals on my way to conquer Mt. Readmore. This way no matter what I can see progress happening.
So what happens if I don’t achieve climbing Mt. Readmore? Well, it gives me a goal for the following year. And if I do reach the top of this mountain? Well then 2019’s challenge will be even harder! All I know is that this year I will be reading a bunch of books and the ones I select will be my choice and no one else’s. 🙂
