FEBRUARY 2016: YOUR READING HISTORY – REREAD YOUR FAVORITES
From: Goodreads 2016 Reading Challenge group
Duration: February 1 – February 28, 2016
With this month’s theme being History, we thought a great monthly challenge would be for us to look at our own book histories.
Revisit books you’ve been meaning to re-read, whether they are old friends or comfort reads, books you’ve read too long ago to fully recall, or titles you want to revisit now that you’re older or in a different place in life. Perhaps one of you want to read an earlier book in a series you need to reread to refresh your mind for the next installment.
To participate in this challenge, pick the number of books you would like to re-read, and let us know how many.
We can’t wait for you to catch up with these old friends.
Jackie B’s Challenge Books
Unfortunately, I didn’t make it in this challenge for February 2016. I kept getting distracted by shiny new books. I think I fell off the wagon with this challenge since I selected books that would double for my Listopia challenge; books I hadn’t read since elementary school. That said, these books didn’t have the magic in them I recalled from my childhood, and once I started Out of the Dust, I just lost my momentum.
