Forums Literature The 50 Book Challenge

(Banner not made by me)

This originally began as a LiveJournal community, but has since grown to have more followers over the years.

In one year, try to read 50 books! Start any time you like and finish the challenge 12 months later! You can read anything from textbooks to graphic novels to biographies to science fiction. If you think of it as a book, and you read it, you can add it to your challenge list.

Don't think you can make 50 books? Aim for 25, 100, 200! The whole point of the challenge is motivation. Just set a goal for yourself and keep track of everything you read for the year.

Or try counting pages! 15,000 pages is considered the equivalent of 50 books. It's what you would read if each of your 50 books were 300 pages long.

- To make a list, just post it!
Organize a pretty heading, list the books you've read.

- As always, follow all Voltra Rules and TOS

- Try to only post your list once and edit it with all future updates.

- No criticizing or insulting someone else's list!

- No plot spoilers. If you're about to give away any information that wouldn't normally be found on the back cover of the book, check yourself and don't post it.

I love looking at other people’s lists! I can steal ideas for other books to read
@dragoness129: and @ixora: and @terror 404: how goes the reading? Are your lists up to date?

Also, added a simple, cute banner to my list. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Donator Posted 1 year ago ( 2019/02/24 18:18:08 )
@Mousy: yes I'm in the middle of my 2nd book DX

Moderator Posted 1 year ago ( 2019/02/24 20:05:26 )
@ixora: XD I read a lot at night. I finished one last night and I'll start a new one tonight. I can't turn my brain off long enough to relax and go to sleep. So, I read until my eyes can't take it anymore and pass out. That way my brain has no excuses. Although, it does make for some interesting dreams...
Please ping! I get distracted easily.

Donator — They/Them Posted 1 year ago ( 2019/02/24 20:30:38 )
@Mousy: yeah, it's up to date. reading's been slow, cuz my friends got me into a new game.
i'll probably try to start reading before bed to catch up.

@Mousy: my 2nd book is a pretty light read and I tend to read so much if I'm extra curious about what's gonna happen. If I like chose... mystery novels... I probably could finish one a day @.@

Well I'm slowly reading through an anxiety book, and I've got three books out of the library, though I'm not counting one of them because I finished it before the date i "started it on" and I've been really slow to read it because this week hasn't been an "its time to read" week yet. xD


Donator Posted 1 year ago ( 2019/03/4 16:27:27 )
I need to make a trip to the library and pick up a book. I don't wanna read the sequel of what I just read lol.

Voltie — Sha/female Posted 1 year ago ( 2019/03/4 17:21:35 )

I need to remember which books I left off on :( I was borrowing three book series from the library one at a time because they had to get it from inter library loan. And I needed a break from doing that.
So I left off somewhere in warriors, Pendragon, and mercy Thompson, all of which I want to pick up again

Goal: hit 15k posts
Please do ping me. I'm going through life struggles. Seeing pings makes me smile and helps me make sure not to miss replies.
