My 2019 reading challenge

Hey there! I got out of the funk I was in during my last post. Thanks for putting up with my pity party.

Now that we are in the new year, I have created a reading challenge for myself. During 2019, I challenge myself (and anyone who wants to join me) to read the following:

  • A children’s book
  • A book by a local author
  • One of my top three books I’ve ever read
  • A book based on it’s cover
  • A genre I don’t normally read
  • A book with a one word title
  • Reread a favorite book
  • A book recommended by someone with good taste
  • A book set in my home state
  • A debut novel
  • A biography
  • A book over 500 pages long

I have already made some progress.  The first book I read this year checks off the children’s book category. I read “I’m Just a Little Cow”. An adorable board book that I spotted while checking in returns at the library where I work.




This little cow is adorable.  I’ve recommended it and even put it out on our staff picks shelf.

I’ll be posting more as I work through the list.

Happy New Year!

My husband, Mike, and I moved from NJ to Southwest Florida in September 2006. I currently work at a local library and fill my free time with crafts, reading and my experiments in the kitchen. Our fur kids, Buddy the dog and Nibbles (aka Brutus) the cat, keep us entertained all day.
