Thanks to My Tiny Obsessions, I learned that Popsugar put out a Reading Challenge 2015.
Now, I know that I already have a reading challenge set and reading 52 books in a year is almost impossible. I struggle with 35 and I set 40 books for this year plus there’s that Classics Adventure which is a long term project. I’m happily reading my second Jane Austen novel this year before heading back into the next indie book. While I’m here, if you have indie book suggestions/recommendations, please send them my way. I have a bunch still in my tablet but I’m always on the prowl for more.
Here is the list. You will find the printable at the link up there, just click on Reading Challenge 2015. Maybe you’d like to join this Reading Challenge also, right?
The ones I’ve read will be bold and italicized along with the link to the book review. If I already know what book I intend on reading for whichever one, I’ll put it next to the category.

Here’s my Reading Challenge for 2015. This is going to exceed my Goodreads challenge but even if I don’t finish it in 2015, I will continue to make it happen. A secondary goal this year is to save money and that means exploring free ebooks and reading ALL the books I have bought but haven’t checked out yet. So, that’s the basis of my list here.
Anyone up for doing this Reading Challenge in 2015 also? Any books to suggest?
Let us start the week easy with this “quick” list 🙂 Happy Monday!
