Challenge #1 - Lower the number of books on my TBR mountain. Looking at the picture below makes this one an obvious choice.
My LibraryThing account tells me that there are 169 books sitting on those shelves. It also tells me that I have 164 unread young adult books on my Kindle.
Challenge #2: Read in my reading blind spots. Donalyn Miller calls them book gaps here. I am aware of my two major gaps. I don't choose to read contemporary young adult fiction nor do I choose to read nonfiction. I'm going to need some help here. What contemporary YAs or nonfiction books must I put on my list if I want to consider myself a well-rounded reader?
I'm stopping here. I want to have a focus for the coming year and not forget what I have challenged myself to do. What are your challenges for the coming year?
