Time to gather up my plans for next year's reading and share them with you. Because I can. Mwahahah.
So, I didn't do a "My Year with..." personal challenge in 2019 because I just couldn't settle on one. But I have figured out one for 2020! It will be My Year with C. S. Lewis. I'll kick that off by participating in Olivia's read-along of Till We Have Faces over at Meanwhile, in Rivendell... which you can learn about here.
Besides it, I aim to read some books about Lewis, and maybe reread Narnia, but also maybe read some of his books that are sitting on my to-be-read shelves. Especially since Cowboy gave me a boxed set of a bunch of Lewis books for Christmas.
Which brings me to the rest of my reading plans for 2020. Y'all, I have too many unread books. How many? This many:
That picture's a little misleading. The books piled on the floor are ones I've already read, but don't have homes for. The books ON all those shelves are ones I haven't read, plus about 60 more that are in the basement on our nonfiction shelves. Grand total of unread books I own and want to read (so, not counting research resources) is 537. EGAD. That's crazy talk. Ouch.
I've been trying to get a handle on these for a couple years now, by doing the Mount TBR Challenges and so on, but it hasn't helped much. So this year, I'm participating in #theunreadhselfproject2020 challenge from The Unread Shelf. My goal is to clear off one whole shelf in my bedroom so I can put those books piled on the floor onto an actual shelf instead. I'll be tracking my progress on Instagram and probably talking about it here too.
This project comes with specific month-to-month challenges, which will be an interesting twist on the "read books you already own" sort of thing I've done previously.
I've dedicated a couple of pages in my bullet journal to keeping track of what I read, especially as regards this project.
So. Those are my reading plans for next year. Do you have reading plans? If so, what are they?
