Last year my reading challenge goal was to read twenty-six books. I completed the challenge, and I even ended up completing it before the end of December, but I never increased the goal. I think I just got to a point where I felt like “OK, goal achieved, I’m not working one ounce harder on this.”

This year, I want to read one hundred books, and I expect most of them will either be fiction, or interesting non-fiction that has nothing to do with anything remotely related to my line of work. It’s not that I don’t think work-related reading is important, I do. But books for me are a really great way to chill out, and I already read a metric ton of articles related to work. I don’t have much of an anticipated booklist yet, and I’m not sure I’m going to put in the time to create one. I think I’m going to just roll with it. I have some books I started reading towards the end of last year that I am carrying over to this year. They’re pretty long (twenty to forty hours or more in audio). Those are the best kind. I will probably read some short books as well, and for the sake of this exercise I’m defining “short” as ten hours or less. I also want to review the books I read, and I may write some reviews of some of the books I read last year, at least the new ones. I also want to write more status updates to go along with documenting percentage fiinished, and I’ll post all that here.

So, with all that said, on with the challenge.
