My reading challenge for 2016 is going to reflect the recent change to my lifestyle. I have moderately increased the number of books I plan to read, from 15 to 20. Reading is just one of my interests, I still want to continue with my blogging, sewing, crocheting, National Trust volunteering and my rediscovery of knitting. Never mind enjoying the garden, a little baking and days out. When I typed like that I wonder how I ever found the time for work, but hobbies can be so rewarding.
I will use the Goodreads website again for tracking my 2016 Reading Challenge. You can see my progress whenever you visit my blog, on the handy little tracker widget located on the right hand side of the screen, or sidebar as we bloggers like to call it.
|A Penguin Classic read Jane Eyre|
I will start my 2016 Reading Challenge with the third book in the Divergent series called Allegiant by Veronica Roth. From then on I am wanting to read books by well known authors I have never previously read. Such as Ruth Rendall, Charles Dickens, Dick Francis to start with, I already have the next Lee Childs, Jack Reacher novel so that will also be on my reading list. One of the features of Goodreads is that it allows you to add books to your virtual bookshelf, waiting for you to read them.
I have some unread books on my bookshelf and also received a beautiful copy of Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte for Christmas. It must be over 20 years since I first read it, so it will also be part of my reading challenge. The majority of the books will be from my local library, use it or lose it as they say - although we have a number of shiny new libraries where I live. Or the many secondhand bookshops that are available, particularly those at National Trust properties.
Do you have any book recommendations for me? Is there a must read I need to add to my bookshelf? Tweet me, or comment on my Facebook page or leave me a comment on this blog post.
