You already know that I have taken on the 2010 TBR Challenge hosted by MizB. In addition to just thinking about reducing the size of my TBR, I want to think about what my ‘mix’ of books for 2010 will look like. So, what I’m talking about is less of a challenge and is more goal setting.
For 2009 I set three goals as they related to reading: 30 books total, 5 non-fiction, and 5 classics. Two out of three ain’t bad, so I hear.
So, for 2010, my “challenge” is called Mixology, and the rules are pretty simple.
2. List no less than 4 categories for these books and determine how many you’ll read in each category. Examples of categories:
by class: fiction / non-fiction / contemporary / classic / newly published / award winning (Booker, Pulitzer)
by genre: historical fiction, religious fiction, fantasy, sci-fi, dystopian literatur, memoir, biography, personal or professional growth
by class of author: female / male / Asian / Middle Eastern
other: TBR / review (ARC) books
3. These books can overlap with other challenges AND even fit more than one category within this challenge.
4. Audio books do count; re-reads do not.
Here are my 2010 Mixology Goals:
1. 40 books total
2. 10 “New to me” Award-winning authors (authors I’ve never read but have won awards)
3. 8 non-fiction
4. 5 classics
5. 6 review or ARC books
6. 12 from my TBR
