101 Books

As I mentioned in my post 101 in 1001: What exactly is it? I’m changing up my book challenge a bit this time around. The list maker in me loves to put together that long list of books to read, but I didn’t enjoy it as much as I thought I would with my last challenge. I found it tough to get through, as it was just so many books and over such a long period of time. I didn’t like feeling as though I had to pick up a certain book next, just to meet my deadline. So I’m trying something a little different.

This time I’m giving myself some themed categories – or I guess you could say several mini challenges within the challenge. For the most part I’m leaving the books blank, to be filled into each category as I go along. I still want a challenge, I just want to to try it a little bit differently.

Instead of crossing books off when they are completed (because I find that can be hard to read) I will highlight them in bold. I’ll still add my rating next to the book.
