Goodreads Challenge – 2017

2017 Goodreads Reading Challenge Button

Last year, I chose to focus my Goodreads challenge on books that were new-to-me. I succeeded and actually surpassed my goal, reading 83 new-to-me books.

This year, I decided to go back to simply counting books overall. I have other challenges to help me keep track of the various types of books I read; this year Goodreads will just be an overall count. I’m challenging myself to read 175 books this coming year. I don’t know, I may not make that many, but we’ll see!

Right now, while the year is young, I’m not listing the books in alphabetical order, but rather in the order in which I’ve read them. Later in the year, I’ll go back and organize them more.
