Are you hoping to be more focused and purposeful in your reading for 2016? Here are three resources that may help you and your family.
Challies.com 2016 Reading Challenge
Tim’s challenge is designed to help you read more and to broaden the scope of your reading. His 2016 Reading Challenge is composed of four lists, which you move through progressively. You will need to determine a reading goal early in the year and set your pace accordingly.
Redeemed reader.com 2016 Reading Challenge
The women at Redeemedreader.com took Challies’ reading challenge and, with his blessing, converted it to a list that will work for everything from picture books through middle grade titles and more. “No matter where your children are on the reading spectrum, they should be able to find books in the categories on our list (even if you are still reading all their books to them).”
The goal at the Redeemed Reader blog is “to shine a gospel light on children’s literature so that Christian parents, educators, and the children they nurture may read in a more redeemed and redeeming way.”
Goodreads 2016 Reading Challenge
If you don’t already have one, consider opening a (free) Goodreads account and joining their annual reading challenge. You simply set a goal number of books to read this year, and then keep track of the books you read on Goodreads. Each time you finish a book, Goodreads will automatically update your progress on the challenge.
Happy 2016 reading, ladies!
