For Consideration: 2018 Reading Challenges

This is the time of year that I vacillate between giving up reading challenges entirely (as I become alarmed by the number that I will NOT complete by the end of the current year) and being intrigued by all the great challenges book bloggers are writing about this month.
The Canadian Book Challenge is still in progress (I love that it ends in July!) As far as other possibilities these are the current contenders:

A couple that I learned about from One Catholic Life:

British Books Challenge 2018
I read a lot of British books anyway and the host has some neat things planned that might help me discover new British authors.

Non-Fiction Reading Challenge
I have been reading more and more non-fiction and I like the flexibility combined with accountability of this challenge.

Some old favorites I may revisit:

What's in a Name 2018
I have completed this challenge for the past 6 years and I always enjoy it so will no doubt jump in again.

Back to the Classics 2018
I did this for the first time in 2017 and found it a helpful way to remind/encourage myself to read more classics.

Foodies Read
I haven't done this one for several years, but I love to read about food, so it would be a good one to go back to. Especially since listening to Milk Street Radio has added a ton of food books to my TBR list.

I was also intrigued by this: 2018 European Reading Challenge

So far I haven't committed to any 2018 reading challenges, but these are what I am considering. What reading challenges are you planning for next year?

  1. I am already signed up for a TBR Pile reading challenge, in which there is a list of books to read, and I plan to sign up for the Mount TBR Reading challenge. The only other one I am considering is the 2018 European Reading Challenge that you mention.


Thanks for sharing your thoughts!
