Last year, Ashley and I (she’s no longer on here) decided to start a reading challenge that would allow us a way to read some of the books on our shelves. We both had a bad habit of buying a bunch of books but prioritizing certain ones vs. others and ending up with a whole bunch of books on our shelves that were, sadly, unread.
I absolutely loved it, because it allowed me a more structured way to let me choose some of the books I owned but hadn’t gotten around to reading. So, without further ado, here’s the reading challenge prompt for 2018! (this is meant to be a reading challenge, but if you’re on IG as well, feel free to tag your challenges as you complete them with #tackleyourlibrary2018 , I’d love to see your stuff! — UPDATED: picture for IG included at the bottom, feel free to repost it on there and tag me (@ bookschief_managed)
There are 15 prompts, I’m going to include my choice for each one- all of them are books I own that I haven’t read yet. BUT if you just want to pick books you want to get from the library, books you want to buy or get in 2018, whatever it may be. Be creative, have fun!
