2016 January: Marathon

February 2, 2016

From: Goodreads 2016 Reading Challenge group
Duration: January 1 – January 31, 2016

Let’s start the New Year off running! How many of us have a New Year’s Resolution to read more books? How many of us set goals higher that we did last year? How many of us want to read that super long Penguin Classic that has been sitting on our bookshelf, or spend long winter days on the couch with a pile of graphic novels? Let’s start this New Year with a marathon of reading!

With long school breaks and snow days coming, pick a pile of books you feel you could snuggle up with. A nice long over 500 page book, a group of books under 100 pages, that book that has been on your TBR waiting to be read all day, or anything else you choose for yourself.

This is not a sprint, but a way to spend January in the pages! Pick the number of pages or books you would like to read in January and post them below. The goal is to get the New Year started fast! Who would have thought, with the snow coming, that you could do a marathon in January?
