So many reading challenges on Pinterest, every year I write down a few for when I don’t know what I’m in the mood to read, but I still want to read something. Usually it’s things like a book that was banned, something by an unknown author or even the thickest novel in the store. I try not to write too many down because than I find myself reading just to complete the list more than actually enjoying what I’m reading.
I definitely have the same problem. I have the tendency to push myself too far into challenges... which makes reading feel like a chore.

My reading challenge is to read at least one book (ebook or paper book) weekly. Doing that a year means at least 50 books for that year.

My reading challenge this year is to read 4 books to review per month! I only started up again a month or so ago, but I've gotten my goal so far :)

I really want to read some classics that have always been daunting to me, such as War and Peace. Another goal would be to read at least 5-10 books a month and make sure they are of various genres, I love learning something new!

My goal is to work through my 'to-read' stack that built up during college. After that, I should be working full time, so while I still want to read a book a week, I'm not sure how many I'll get through. I'll need to make a specific time on my calendar and keep track of which books I want to read.

I want to read at least one book a month that isn't in my usual repertoire of 'types'. I read a decently wide range already, but it should help keep me out of a rut and broaden my horizon!

My goal has been to read at least 100 books this year. I'm 60% of the way there already! I have also taken on a reading challenge called A to Z where you read a title beginning with each letter of the alphabet. For example Harry Potter would be H, Animal Farm would be A, etc... I am loosely doing a Reading USA challenge to read a book set in every state, but I am carrying that over year to year to not be such a burden. What I don't finish now I can finish in 2021.

Wow
That's ambitious, I would have never thought of that, the state by state thing.
I'll have to do that alphabetical reading, I really like it.

So my current to-read list is about 90 books long. I would really like to get through half of that this year, with most of the books being Fantasy and YA Fiction. It's a list that's been several years in the making. I have this habit of going to browse in book stores and, rather than buying books, I add them to my to-read list. I typically don't buy a book before I read it, so I usually borrow one of those books from a library and read it. Sometimes I re-visit the book store and buy the book if I really liked it. Let's see how many books I can read this year!

I just started a new challenge beginning this month. I'm reading a book that begins with each letter of the alphabet. ("A", "An", and "The" do not count.) One exception that I may have to make is that for the letter x, it will be in the title - for example, a book about Malcolm X.

My 2020 reading challenge is to read regularly and keep reading. I have got into the habit of procrastinating. So once I have finished one I would like to get onto the next one. Whether it's a physical book, Audible or my Amazon book's. So far I am onto my 3rd book and here is to a lot more :D

I would like to get through my to-read list during the rest of the year. I would also like to read at least one classic book a month.

I was a bit late in setting a reading goal for 2020, I've always read a lot, but never tracked what I read, until recently. The Covid-19 restrictions led me to Goodreads in June, which is when I set my official goal of 72 books for the remainder of the year. I am at 28/72 so far, and read 19 books in July, so if I read 8 or 9 books a month for the remainder of the year I should reach that goal. I really enjoy having a physical book in my hand, but I'm trying to allow myself to use my e-reader more often, so that is another goal. The BIG goal is ensuring that I continue to enjoy reading when I start interning in a couple of weeks.

-Read 2/5 Classics (have read 2 so far, currently reading 1; I DNF'd 1 and I have 4 BRs scheduled for later this year. Next year I may set this goal to 10 books)
-Read 0/1 Stephen King book (this is becoming a yearly tradition)
