My 2015 Challenges

my 2015 challenges

Happy New Year! Are you making any resolutions this year, or joining in any reading challenges? Last year I only participated in the Goodreads challenge (I rocked my goal, yay!) but I missed participating in other reading challenges, so I’m going all out this year. There are challenges to stretch my mind and body, and get me organized. I’m excited to get started!

My 2015 challenges:

 

my 2015 challengesHosted by: Book Journey

Objective: Get to know your local library! Promote the events your library offers, check out new releases, put pre-release books on hold, and utilize your digital library as well.

Since most of my audiobooks come from the library this challenge is a cakewalk for me- I’m going for the “Going Pro” level of 28 checkouts.

Hosted by: The Book Nympho & Hot Listens

Objective: Give audiobooks a try or beat last year’s listening record. Any genres count, re-reads count- they only need to be in audio format!

Last year I listened to 106 books, which is a personal best for me. Not sure if I can beat that next year but I’m signing up for the “Marathoner” level which is 50+ audiobooks.

Hosted by: The Geeky Blogger & That’s What I’m Talking About

Objective: Readers focus on fitness! Get moving with your exercise regime of choice. There are weekly check-ins and monthly “are you in” posts.

This year I struggled with keeping up with my workouts due to injuries but I’ve picked it up again. I’ve been logging my food and workouts and this challenge is another way to help me meet my goals. And since I listen to audiobooks I can get my “reading” in at the same time!

Hosted by: Reading Wishes & Rather Be Reading

Objective: Read more diverse books! There are no set goals or minimums for this challenge, so it’s low stress. However, you are encouraged to read at least one diverse book a month. I do that already for the YA Diversity Book Club, but the more diverse books the merrier!

Hosted by: The Book Addict’s Guide

Objective: Get your blog organized! This is a half-year challenge that outlines monthly tasks to help you keep your blog looking spiffy.

Since moving to WordPress.org six months ago, I haven’t really taken the time to figure out all the bells and whistles of self-hosting. I’m looking forward to spending some time cleaning up my blog this year, and the monthly tasks I think will help make this process more manageable.

Other fun challenges I’m perusing: Pop Sugar Ultimate Reading Challenge, Book Riot Read Harder

Good luck with all your 2015 reading goals! Let me know what reading challenges you’ve signed up for.

  1. Sounds like you picked some great challenges! I still haven’t decided if I’m going to pursue reading challenges this year or not. It’s just one more thing to worry about and with a full time job it’s hard for me to do. But I am interested in the Book Riot Read Harder challenge, so I may try that one. Good luck, and have a fantastic new year’s!

  2. Fun challenges!!! I like the diversity one, I participated in one of those a while back and I really liked searching out books of diversity.

  3. I am doing a number of these. I found #fitreaders which was #bookblogwalkers in 2014 really motivating, I think its the idea of others doing it, even if you are doing it by yourself really. And the accountability as well. Hope it goes well for you. I thought about the blog organization but decided no in the end. Although I am shifting to self hosted wordpress 2015.

  4. These are some great challenges! Man, I wish I had the time to participate in some. I’m a PhD student and I work full-time. This year, I’m going to get into reading a LOT more. At least non-school books, lol. Any ideas or tips?
