2015 Reading Challenge

I have found my challenge for the year. Aside from reading 90 books in 2015, that is.

 

I'm going to do Book Riot's 2015 Read Harder Challenge. Here are the details:

 

There are 24 tasks in the Read Harder Challenge (or roughly two per month). You can tackle them in any order, make any changes, do them all in a month or spread them out over the year. Make the challenge yours!

 

A book written by someone when they were under the age of 25

 

A book written by someone when they were over the age of 65

 

A collection of short stories (either by one person or an anthology by many people)

 

A book published by an indie press

 

A book by or about someone that identifies as LGBTQ

 

A book by a person whose gender is different from your own

 

A book that takes place in Asia

A book that someone else has recommended to you

 

A book that was originally published in another language

A book published this year

 

A self-improvement book (can be traditionally or non-traditionally considered “self-improvement”)
