I linked to this challenge in my New Year's post, but I need to just make a post dedicated to it because it's such a cool idea.
My Little Pocketbooks is hosting a reading challenge this year. I would try to summarize the reason and the purpose, but they do it so much better than I ever could that I'm not going to try to reinvent the wheel.
The point being: There's room for all sorts of characters and authors in the world. Read some of them.
I personally will be aiming for the 1-shelf goal of 1-6 books, because I can be a slow reader. I'm hoping to read more. I've already got plans for that many this year, so we'll see.
