I like the idea of a challenge list, put in a jar or otherwise. It's so easy to forget all those great ideas as the year progresses. This way, you can remind yourself and stay on track.
Thanks for reminding me of this! I have not finished my 500+ book for March, though the one I read in February was also in that category.

April: Read a book that is not a novel.

That should be easy enough seeing as both my 500+ books were not novels. And there are plenty more where those came from.

This sounds like a fun challenge. Going down the list rather than putting it in a jar (as someone else suggested) sounds more doable for me. I might try to see how many of these things I can check off the list too.

Hmm I got "Read a series finale" for May. I just read the first three books of a series, but there are about eight. Return of the King maybe?

Hiiiiii,
so this is a really great idea. Let's see how many I have already done:

1. Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle Vol. 2
2. Wolfsong + Ravensong By T. J. Klune
3. Like A Love Story by Abdi Nazemian
4. Seven Ways We Lie by Riley Redgate
5. Call Me By Your Name Narrated by Armie Hammer
6. American Psycho by
7. Gracefully Grayson by Ami Polonski
8. Read a book that is not a novel (what is it then?)
9. Read/watch a book and its adaptation
10. Read an award-winning novel
11. Frankenstein by Mary Shelley
12. Read a series finale

Any suggestions for the ones I haven't covered yet?

Awesome! You know, I don't understand novel to be a synonym of book, so that could cover anything else - non-fiction, poetry, etc.

Any suggestions for the ones I haven't covered yet?

Oh, yeah. Sure. Let's see

1.
2. Reread a favourite book
3. You can check the book I read for this one. It's an amazing book.
4. I pick for you A Man Called Ove, it's a fantastic read.
5.
6. Read a book that you DNF'd/gave up on
7. Read a new-to-you author
8. Read a book that is not a novel
9. I think if you haven't already read/watched Gone Girl, go for it.
10. Less by Andrew Sean Greer (my current read) or All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr (My personal favorite)
11. I read White Fang this year and loved it.
12.

hope you at least pick one of them up. :wink2: :)

I think the real challenge for me will be reading a novel that I have read before again.
