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!
