Reading Resolutions: December Update

31 Dec

With so many Reading Challenges out there, I figured keeping a monthly update on the ones I’m participating in will be a great way to keep track of my progress!

I actually posted my comprehensive update here.

Off the Shelf 2015– I forgot to include this review during the last week’s #IMWAYR.

A Christmas CarolA Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I think everyone is more or less familiar with the story, so ingrained it in are we. But it was a fun festive treat to read the actual story and I ended up appreciating it more.

Nonfiction Picture Book 2015 Goal: 104 books– I actually exceeded my goal by reading a total of 130.

To Be Read 2015/ Must Read in 2015– I forgot to include this during the last week’s #IMWAYR.


Peril at End House by Agatha Christie

I don’t know if it was just me who did it but I was constantly editing my TBR list. I didn’t want to continue reading books that weren’t grabbing my attention and I kept finding ones that were calling out to me. I also decided I’d replace the ones I took off and in the end I added 21 books on the list. I read a total of 73 books!

My suggestions for anyone considering having a Must Read list is (1) to do it and (2) to have a quarterly review of it!

– I visited yet another bookstore- Passages Bookshop. They just relocated to their new location but it was my first time going there. The owner was super nice and knowledgeable.

Happy Reading in 2016!

    Okay, Earl– You’ve killed the “must read” list! Way to go! I think your advice regarding a Must Read list is smart. After finishing my first “go” at this, I know I need to revise my list quarterly–if for no other reason than that so many additional books are published, and I hear about so many that I didn’t know about when I made my list! Happy reading to you in 2016!
