Have you signed up for the #BBRC Birth and Beyond Reading Challenge. We have 44 challengers so far, and if you are not on the list, but would like to participate there is still time.

The #BBRC is pretty easy. It's a list of 77 books to read (you choose the titles to match the prompts) that covers books for the youngest to the oldest of us all. The challenge goes for 1 year: July 1, 2019-June 30, 2020.

https://forms.gle/tjA9ov1vbbybo541A

LibrarianRyan If you would like to see the challenge prompts check out #BBRC tag as there are special graphic made for each section, or they are at the bottom of the sign up page.

And I should probably say that there will be prizes throughout the year. Including a chance to win to new release books on July 1.

Yay! Goodreads reading challenge completed! 😀😁😊💜📚

But with six months still left in the year, and with a portion of these being picture books for storytime prep, I'd definitely like to read another 50+ that are a healthy combo/balance of middle grade, YA, and literary adult fiction.

So let's get to it!

marleed I‘m at 82 of 120 which is significantly more books than I‘ve ever read in a year but I thought I was at a place where I could meet this goal. 5mo
BookishShelly 100 books, I've read 36 books, so 7 behind schedule. But I'm a weird one. I prefer being behind schedule. The whole reason I started the challenges was because I had my son and wasn't reading much. I wanted something to motivate me to read more (to not lose myself in motherhood but keep a hobby I love alive for myself) and knowing I'm behind in my goal reminds me to read more. I don't care if I don't complete it. (edited) 5mo

An interesting six minute read about reading goals and challenges. “The only difference between a nonreader and a reader is that a reader has a plan for future reading and a nonreader does not.”

https://www.theatlantic.com/education/archive/2019/06/do-people-finish-their-goo...

#readinggoals #readingchallenges

rretzler The part about planning and being a reader vs nonreader is interesting. I‘ve been a reader all my life - started young and there have been only a few times that I‘ve not had a book or a few that I‘m reading (college and babies spring to mind, but even then it was textbooks and picture books) and average 125-150 or more books per year. Last year was the first year that I ever planned my reading and I‘m 55. Planning, IMO, has its ups and downs 6mo
hjreviews Very interesting article. Like @rretzler, I‘ve been a reader my whole life (I have a clear memory of 10 year old me wanting to read 100 books in a year). However, it hasn‘t been until this past year and a half that I‘ve really felt like a reader. I read multiple books at once, of multiple genres, and keep a journal. But my “planning” is simply read 1/7 of the books a day. Doesn‘t seem like that should make such a difference but I guess it could. 6mo
LibrarianRyan This was interesting. It seemed focus on numbers and vaguely mentioned challenges. I do know somepeople who make a list of the books and then go about reading them. For me (750 goal, 188 behind), the number is nice, and I plan to do challenges, but let it be more random. Read the book and then find where it fits. 6mo
See All 7 Comments
Weaponxgirl I find the planning idea interesting, I love making lists of books I want to get to and of books that fit prompts for certain challenges but at the end of the day I‘m a mood reader. My planning is more inclined towards the having these lists available for when I‘m in the right mood to read them. I‘m in the category of enjoying them because I‘m never that bothered if I manage to finish the goal or not. Just happy I‘ve read great books 6mo
SW-T @rretzler @hjreviews @LibrarianRyan @Weaponxgirl I‘ve always been a reader. My idea of a goal is “try to read today.” I do make note of things I‘d like to read someday and when I‘m in the mood, I read them. It‘s interesting to me how some people plan their reading lives, how they pick what to read, track things, etc. I sometimes wonder if setting goals sets people up for success or failure, but figure it depends on the person and the goal. 6mo
rretzler @LibrarianRyan @hjreviews @Weaponxgirl @SW-T My planning consists of making a list of books that I want to read during the year - next book in a series, group reads I know I‘m participating in, new releases from my favorite authors and books I‘ve been meaning to read. I participate in challenges, but never plan for those. Like LibrarianRyan, I read what I want and then try to figure out where it fits and if it fits. I get to more of my TBR now! 6mo

I am reposting this since it has been a while and there are some who missed it and lots of new Littens. Here is how the challenge works, anytime you read a book in a series tag me and use the #SeriesRead. As a motivator, I am doing quarterly giveaways. Each tag is an entry. So read as little or as much as you want! Winners will be drawn randomly and in the month following the end of each quarter. Happy Reading!

jenniferw88 I'll definitely join, but can our jan/feb reads to count? 8mo
TheSpineView Sure! 8mo
jmtrivera I had the same thought when setting my reading resolutions for this year! I've already read one, and have already started working on a couple! 8mo
BarbaraJean I love this! I feel like this is always one of my annual reading goals—finish the series I‘ve started!! Will definitely tag you and use the #SeriesRead tag as I make some progress. 😊 8mo
TheSpineView @BarbaraJean Greata so glad you are joining!💜 8mo
Soubhiville Cool idea! I‘ll try to remember to tag you... my main series now are Discworld by Pratchett and the No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency series by McCall Smith. I try to read at least one of each per month... sometimes I don‘t manage with all the other shiny TBR‘s though 😊📚📚📚 8mo
TK-421 Terrific idea! 8mo
TrishB Cool 👍🏻 I have a lot of series on the go! 8mo
CBee I‘m going to give it a try! 😁 8mo
jb72 And now I know which book I need to go pick off my bookshelves. It‘s the last in the series, and I‘ve been putting it off because the author took a turn that I didn‘t like. 8mo
SharonGoforth This sounds great! I recently finished the first Matthew Shardlake book in the Tudor series by CJ Sansom, and enjoyed it so much that bought the rest of the series! 8mo
TheSpineView @Soubhiville Glad you can join! 8mo
TheSpineView @TK-421 😀 8mo
TheSpineView @CBee Great!😀 8mo
TheSpineView @SharonGoforth I do that often, read one then have to have them all!😋 8mo
InBooksILive I have SO many series I've only read the 1st book in so I NEED to join in on this!! Will post and tag! 8mo
LapReader I‘m in. I will be reading the rest of True Blood. 8mo

Moony 🥂🎉🎉🎉 Do you count only books or audiobooks, too? 8mo
Sarah83 @Moony only books and eBooks. If I listen to audiobooks I sleep within a minute. 8mo
rubyslippersreads Congratulations! 😊 (And audiobooks put me to sleep too.) 8mo
Sarah83 @rubyslippersreads in fact I don't really concentrate on audiobooks. My mind deals with everything else during listening to them and I don't have any clue, what is happening. 😂 8mo

#booked2019 update. Now on to finishing my female detective pick!😁

Cinfhen Congrats on completing your first two prompts 😁I wasn‘t able to determine which book you read for #NewAuthor ??? Just want to make sure we record the entry so you earn another chance in the quarterly drawing ❤️ 9mo
MolliesaurusRex @Cinfhen I‘m using Cinder for both - is double dipping okay?😋 9mo
Cinfhen For our challenge it‘s only one book per prompt , sorry! You still have until Dec 31, 2019 to read the 24 books so no rush or worries‼️ 9mo

I like to track my reading digitally, but I like to have a physical spot to plan. I decided to put everything all together in my notebook so I can plan what to read for them. I have an unexpected snow day, so I put this together. #mmdchallenge #booked2019 #readharderchallenge #readingwomenchallenge. I wasn‘t going to do #readharder but my coworker talked me into it. 🤦🏻‍♀️

TheSpineView I do the same thing. I use a spreadsheet and I still write stuff out. 10mo
Crazeedi You are so organized! Awesome! 10mo
Cinfhen I‘ve also tried creating a journal for my challenges but it‘s not coming together the way I hoped/ envisioned 😬🙄 10mo

Moony Das sieht gut aus! Welche Zahlen nutzt du für die Statistik (Kann mann im Bild nicht erkennen)? Gelesene Bücher/Monat; Seiten; Zeit.... 10mo
Sarah83 @Moony obere Reihe ist die Anzahl der gelesenen Bücher pro Monat (1 Buch = 1 Kästchen und die untere Reihe sind die gelesenen Seiten pro 100 Seiten = 1 Kästchen) 😁 10mo

Going to read a couple of books from the #booknerdchallenge next.

I‘m a little late, but here‘s how I did on last year‘s #MountTBRchallenge

I read 24 books from my tbr. Some of these had been standing on my shelves for almost 10 yrs so I‘m happy about getting to them.

But even more important is that I read 84 books, but bought 83 books. So even if it‘s not much, my tbr shrunk by one book.

I hope this continue in 2019.

GondorGirl That's awesome! Good luck with the 2019 challenges! 10mo
BarbaraBB One book 😂! Good for you! 10mo
DivaDiane You are welcome to continue the challenge on your own. I can‘t run an official one, since I‘ve had to step back from Litsy (not enough time). But if you tag me, I‘ll be here to cheer you on!! Well done on last year!! 10mo

AnneCecilie @GondorGirl thank you. 10mo
AnneCecilie @BarbaraBB I know it‘s not much, but I take what I can get. Usually my tbr only grows 10mo
AnneCecilie @DivaDiane Thank you. I might take you up on that. 10mo
BarbaraBB Yes, I know! I wasn‘t trying to be smart, it is just so recognizable that you try and then end up with one tbr book less! 😘 10mo
AnneCecilie @BarbaraBB I know 😊 must to better this year 10mo

I wasn‘t going to sign up for any “official” reading challenges, because I am more of a mood reader. But, my library was giving out *free* mugs for people who signed up! I am a sucker for a coffee mug...:
