I’m doing the Ultimate Popsugar Challenge as well as a Goodreads challenge. Last year I managed 55 or 56 books across many genres. This year, I’m shooting for 65 books. But, full disclosure, I work in an indie bookstore, so the pressure is great.

Ps If anyone has a favorite book to recommend, I’d love to hear about it.

If you like mysteries, ANY book by Ruth Rendell is aways great.

Mary Roach writes these amazing, fascinating non-fiction books about different subjects that you think you'd never want to read about but then you can't put it down.

No reading challenge here. I just want to read one book at a time. I usually have 4 or 5 books going at the same time. No goals on number of books either. Just however many I can squeeze between now and December 31st, 2019. I try not to have a book unfinished at the end of the year. I started reading R is for Ricochet by Sue Grafton today.

I'm working on the Popsugar Reading Challenge for 2019. I did it last year and really enjoyed it. I'm still finishing it up. ;) I have about 4 books left for the last challenge before I start this one so I want to get it done. I read more than 50 books last year (the number in the challenge) but not everything fit a prompt!

I'd like to get my hands on a copy of that graveyard book of yours. When are you going to publish it?

Every summer our Seattle Library has a reading bingo card challenge and you are to read the books and get a Bingo. Of course, being a BIG reader, I usually do the Black out of the card and read everything. Sometimes the different categories are challenging to me. They usually always have a "read something out of your comfort zone" Blah. Poetry and graphic novels are always a challenge for me, but luckily they are usually quite short and quick to get through! LOL

Doing the PopSugar challenge again—plus personal goal of 95 books for the year (including audiobooks).
