Book Challenge 2020

So having surpassed my own expectations of reading 50 books in 2019 and moving house, I have now realised the actual ton of books I own which have been sitting pretty on shelves and not getting read. Thus, I have set myself a new challenge! I’m still doing the goodreads 50 book challenge, however I have made some rules to try and get through my massive TBR pile.

No buying any new books in 2020

But of course there are exceptions.

1. The only ‘new’ books I can get are if they are gifts, but my birthday and Christmas are the only times this really happens and are ages away.

2. I can continue my subscriptions to Audible and Kindle Unlimited. Though if I can read the books I currently have with KU I might get rid of it and save myself £8 a month.

3. The only major exception to buying a new book is if Peace Talks by Jim Butcher comes out or if there’s suddenly a new Harry Potter book or if Dante is brought back to life and writes a scathing epic poem about the current world situation.

So there, I’m in February already and I’ve only read 3 books, apparently I’m one book behind – but I moved house and I’m working tons. I’ll catch up 😉

Anyone else got their own book challenges going on this year?

I might post a list of all the books I’m hoping to read this year, as ever it’s subject to change based on my mood.
