2016 Reading Challenge

I’ve decided to join the GoodReads 2016 reading challenge this year. I’ve setup a target of 100 books. About 2 books a week is easy, no?

I’ve decided that if I really, really enjoy the book, I’ll blog a separate post about it, else, will just mention it in my periodic updates.

So, the first four books I’ve read in 2016 are:

  1. A Series of Unfortunate Events (Book #3) by Lemony Snicket
  2. Life Before Man by Margaret Atwood
  3. The Lowland by Jhumpa Lahiri
  4. The Robots of Dawn by Isaac Asimov

The choice of the very first book for the year is pretty ominous, right? 🙂 However, I absolutely enjoyed it (talk about schadenfreude!) and the last one too a great deal.

So what do you plan to read this year?

  1. Good luck with the challenge! 🙂

    2 books a week is easy? It isn’t, at least for me! I manage to read only about 3 books a month, irrespective of the types of books they are. It used to be 4 books a month before Bubboo happened. 100 books a year is highly ambitious for me. The best I have managed so far is about 48 books, in 2014. 🙂

  2. Hey, lovely to see you here!

    I am a binge reader, so depending on the book/my mood/available time, I can read a book (or two) a day. 🙂

    Let’s see how this goes anyway – man proposes, and all that!

  3. Anitha what a good way to start the year. I’m just back from Bangalore hence this post at 3.50 am. I just finished 40 rules of love by Elif Shafak and The Short Drop by Matt Fitzsimmons.

    • Hi Shyla! Great to see you here and always looking forward to book recommendations! I am currently stuck with Natwar Singh’s One Life is Not Enough. I think I might just chuck it.
