A New Year is a fresh start. It’s the time to make those good old New Year’s resolutions, the time to pick up some new habits (and maybe even get rid of some old ones), and most excitingly, the time to start a brand new reading challenge full of possibilities! This year, why not make your reading challenge the best one ever?
The first step in any well planned reading challenge is to set your reading goal. How many books do you plan on reading in 2019?…25? 45? 105? This is your basis. There are many free apps that can help you keep track of what you read and even keep your reading stats from year to year. One popular app is GoodReads, but you can read more about others here.
The next step in any well thought out reading challenge is deciding what you want to spend your year reading. Do you want to read more of those classics that everyone “should read?” Do you want to expand your reading tastes to other genres? Or do you want to spend a relaxing year of only reading genres and books that you love?
Here’s some reading challenges that might inspire you:
- A-Z Book Titles

The possibilities are endless. Comment below and tell us what you are looking forward to reading in 2019!
