2015 Reading Challenges

It's that time again! For me, the time of the year when I pick the next year's reading challenges is reminiscent of a new school year or picking new classes. I love thinking about what I'm going to read next year! I don't let my challenges rule me, but I do let them nudge me sometimes. And most of the time the books are well worth it.

I don't know how much reading I'll do in 2015, since I am starting a new business in January, and have two sons getting married, but I am going to proceed with my challenges, and see how it ends up. I also have several ongoing challenges, including my Filling in the Gaps challenge, which ends in December 2015.

Here are the challenges I am doing this coming year:




A little help from my friends 2015


This challenge is my challenge, for me. If anyone else wants to take part, that makes it more fun, but I'm going to do it.
So here's the challenge:
--In some way, get a list of book suggestions from your friends.
--From those suggestions choose between five and ten books that you will read in 2015.
--Make a list of the books that you will read and a few alternates. (I like some flexibility.)
--Copy the picture above, if you like, and post it on your blog. If you don't blog, join us anyway. Just let us know in the comments what you are reading and when you are done.
--Make a post on your blog where you will keep track of the books for this challenge, and link back to this post.
--Please post a comment below with  link to that blog post. Come back and post again when you've finished. Reviews aren't required but they're always fun!
--No book started before 1/1/2015 counts. Books can be used for other challenges.

I will do 10 again this year.

2015 TBR Pile

This challenge. It makes me commit ahead of time. It makes me read things in spite of not being in the mood for them. And it is very good for me.


I will have my twelve books and two alternates--all books that I have had on my list for at least a year, and that I own--by the end of December.

1. Mrs. Dalloway  by Virginia Woolf (4/30/2015)
2. The Silmarillion by J.R.R. Tolkien
3. The Bondage of the Will by Martin Luther

2. Lost States



Mount TBR Challenge 2015

Never give up. That's what makes me join this challenge. Every year my TBR pile grows by more books than I manage to read, and I know 2015 will be no exception. Yet this challenge is valuable, because it gets me to read the books that I've been putting off, which are almost invariably GOOD. Something made me pick them up in the first place. And the books that I buy--whether physical copies or on Kindle--tend to be better quality books.

I am going to go for Pike's Peak, which is 12 books.
I should go for more. But I am starting a new business. Two of my sons are getting married. I just don't know how much meaty reading I will accomplish this year.

*Books must be owned by you prior to January 1, 2015. No ARCs (none), no library books. No rereads. . . Audiobooks and E-books may count if they are yours and they are one of your primary sources of backlogged books.

*You may count any "currently reading" book that you begin prior to January 1--provided that you had 50% or more of the book left to finish in 2014.  I will trust you all on that.

I will post my updated TBR list sometime this month. 

1. Brunelleschi's Dome by Ross King (1/9/2015) 
2. Yes, Chef: A Memoir by Marcus Samuelsson (1/18/2015) 
3. Wouldn't Take Nothing for My Journey Now by Maya Angelou (1/28/2015) 
4. Who Killed Hoosier Hysteria by Wendell Trogdon (2/8/2015) 
5. The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer & Annie Barrows (3/31/2015) 
6. Mrs. Dalloway  by Virginia Woolf (4/30/2015)
7. Stardust by Neil Gaiman (5/3/2015) 
8. The Custom of the Country by Edith Wharton 


Read it again 2015

This is another one that I did this year. I read different books for it than I had intended.

I vacillated over which level to sign up for, and decided on Deja Vu, which is four books.

1. Madame Bovary by Gustave Flaubert (2/10/2015) 
2.  To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee (3/10/2015) 
3.  Katy and the Big Snow by Virginia Lee Burton (8/16/2015)
4. East of Eden by John Steinbeck (9/4/2015)

Vintage mystery bingo

I have really enjoyed reading mysteries from the Golden Age of mysteries the past couple of years, but I think that this year I am going to explore the Silver Age. This challenge will be fun, which is my big requirement for this year.




Basically, I need to read mysteries published between 1960-1989 inclusive to achieve a BINGO.

The Unexpected Mrs. Pollifax by Dorothy Gilman (1/15/2015) 1966  S2, E3, I4, I6, E6
One Corpse Too Many by Ellis Peters (2/3/2015) 1979  I2, L3, V5, E5, E6, R4
Dead Irish by John Lescroart (2/20/2015) 1989 I4, V5,  E5, E6,
The Queen's Head by Edward Marston (7/14/2015) 1988 I4, I6, L1, L3, E5, E6, R4

Cloak and Dagger Challenge

I love a good mystery. Or a thriller. Or a crime novel. They are my go-to relaxation read. Because of that I am giving myself leeway to read lots of them this year.

The challenge that never ends

There have been a number of 1001 Books to Read Before You Die lists published. Someone went to the trouble of compiling all of them into one list of nearly 1300 books. I, of course, can't resist keeping track and trying to read more of these. As I begin, I have read 110 of them.

There are books on the list that I am certain I am not going to read. I will strike through those books. The books I have read will be in blue.

This list is very weighted toward the twentieth & twenty-first centuries. Certain authors seem over-represented. Yet this may still help me find some more good books to read.
