Brown Ajah Book Challenge 2018

Recommended Posts

Welcome to our 2018 Book Challenge!

16a8b9_5d307c648bc64f44b38a00af6b66b754~



What is the Challenge all about?

It's up to you, it can be fun, a challenge or a way to keep track of what you're reading. There's no wrong way to do it!

Some people use it to challenge themselves to do better, some people use it for inspiration, some people just like lists and want somewhere to write their books down. Any method is welcome, the Brown Ajah have many diverse interests but my oh my do we like books so we will readers of any kind here!

If you want to participate, pick how many books you want to read in 2017, and post your goal in this thread. That's all it takes to join.

Periodically update the post you made in this thread with your progress (what you've read, and what you're currently reading if you want to!)

Please make only one post in this thread, saying how many books you want to read during 2017 and which books you've already read so far.

We also have a discussion thread going in our Brown Ajah Book Challenge 2018 Discussion thread and there you find lots of reviews and chat and discussion of upcoming books and occasionally some nonsense!

Will participating count towards my raising requirements?

Yes! Absolutely! 

What I try and and do each month is go through the thread and report any reqs that I see. However sometimes I forget or I miss something so if you think you are due points then please send me a polite PM and we will get it sorted. 

There is no specific number of posts I'm looking for to count, it will be evaluated on a case by case basis however as long as it looks like you have made an effort to join in the conversation and have good posts that contribute to the discussion then it is likely I will consider that to be "actively participating" and you will get a Brown Ajah credit.

What books count?

Any that you would like to count. This challenge is about you. We just share it here for a few reasons:

accountability - if no one else knows your goal it's easier to slip
inspiration - you can see what others are reading and maybe learn about books you'd like to read;
discussions - you will be able to discuss the books you've read with the other participants.

Do audiobooks count?

Yes absolutely! I've seen a lot of people about saying they shouldn't count but personally I think they take way more time than a real book to read so they should absolutely count! 

Of course if your goal is to extend the amount of time you spend with a book in your hand, you don't have to count them if you don't want to.

Can I change my goal, i.e. the number of books I think I will be able to read?

Yes, you can change your goal at any time.

Can I join late?

Yes! Just make your book count post, saying how much you're challenging yourself with, update it with the books you've read thus far this year and voila, you're in!

Goodreads

You can also keep track of your books on Goodreads.com, a site we highly recommend!

My plan for 2018 is to try to complete at least 3 levels of the official Linzthebookworm/Logophile reading challenge that MrsClov and I posted on our respective blogs (mine is here)...   so at least 36 books.  

 

I'll probably read more than that, but not everything may fit within the categories, and I want that to be OK with me this year instead of feeling like a failure. Full challenge list is at the bottom within spoiler tags because DM wouldn't play nicely with formatting.

I finished 81 books in 2017, but I don't think I'll do it again in 2018. I'm finding it harder to find audiobooks at my library that I'm interested in, so I've been listening to more podcasts lately.

I'm sure I'll finish at least 50 books this year, though.

I didn't make my target of 24 last year, I think I got to about 20. This year I am really going to go for it and go for at least 50, because I want to reread the entire discworld this year as well as other stuff and plan to do a lot of reading on my lunchbreak.

 

1. The Colour of Magic

2. The Light Fantastic 

3. Equal Rites

4. Mort

I'm gonna shoot for 10 books this year.  So hard with kiddos.  I'd like to make those 10 as old of classics as possible.  I also want to have a separate list to read to my 7 year old of classic children's books.  I'd love some recommendations for my own classics but for my daughter I want to get the Chronicles of Narnia and the Wizard of Oz series read to her this year.  I think that's at least 12 books, maybe more, I'm fuzzy on the number of Wizard of Oz books.

 

I'd love to personally read books that were written before 1900 or even 1800 and it would be even better if it was more ancient.  Also, non western authors would be a huge plus as well.

If she's only 7, she'd love the translation of the "les malheurs de Sophie"  > Sophie's Misfortunes. It is easy to read for a kid and super entertaining. It was written by a French writer the Countess of Segur in the 1800s :) So maybe you could even read it :tongue:
