2015 Reading

I am planning to put a huge dent in my TBR list.  As of 12/31/14, I have 128 books on my Goodreads to read list. Therefore any book added after this date will not be considered a TBR.

I'm ging to really work on this. I'd like to read 1/3 of this list. That is around 42 books or so from the list.  That is a tall order, but I would be happy if I managed to read 30.

I also want to try to read larger books. I say this every year, but never actually manage to do it.  Books 400 pages or longer totaled around 16 for this year, which is good.  So I'm going to attempt to read books that are 500 pages or larger.

I have made my goal 65 books for 2015.  This is because I'm still in school and I'm not sure of the work load.  And the books with more pages will mean I will read less books per month.

I found a challenge that I will join to help me in this endeavor.  I'm going for "First Kiss". That means I'll have to read 21-30 books from my pile.


The books I am going to read if it kills me:

The Color Purple
The Autobiography of Malcolm X
The Rosie Project
We Are Not Ourselves

There will be many more

These are books that I own, but have yet to get to. I tend to keep going to the library for new books and neglect them, but 2015 is my TBR year!!

The Rosie Project might have been the best book I read last year that wasn't a re-read.

Thanks for the Top 30 List. You reminded me that I really want to read another Rutherfurd!

Good luck with your 2015 TBR Pile Challenge! I hope you're able to tackle a big part of your stack. :)
