2017 26-Book Reading Challenge

Hannah Braime 2017 Reading Challenge

New Year = Resolutions!

This year I have decided to make a big resolution and it has been inspired by a Blogger I just love, Hannah Braime.


2017 26 Book Reading Challenge

We all know that in order to be a better Blogger you need to read more right? Also, readers are leaders!

I’ll admit that I really love to read but usually find myself feeling either too tired or just too busy to open a new book and get stuck in, which is why I told The Thirty-something Dad that this is one challenge we are not going to fail at! My bullet journal has been prepped to help me keep track and I am hoping that this challenge will teach me to dedicate more time to reading books.

How it works

Use Hannah’s list of prompts to help decide on new books to read during 2017. Read a new book from the list every 2 weeks.

  1. I am not sure I can read a book every 2 weeks – but I am committed to reading one a month. My focus this year is on self development; mindset and health. Reading is such an integral part of this new journey.

  2. I am reading “The mountain shadow” part deaux to the work of art called Shantaram
    Restored my passion that books are gentle poetry pulling your strings of your heart to make a melody that remains in your soul
