2015 Reading Challenge

As I’ve said in my blog before, I’d like to read more. Enter the 2015 Reading Challenge from PopSugar.

The challenge includes 50 themes you can shoot for in your reading during 2015. I’ve listed them all here and will mark my progress as the year goes on.

(UPDATE: Categories finished will be bold, books will be linked to Amazon when possible, and titles will be in italics.)

Will you join me?
