2017 Reading Challenge

Tim Challies has issued the 2017 Christian Reading Challenge, “designed to help you read more and to broaden the scope of your reading.” In the challenge, Tim provides suggestions in a checklist format of different types of books to read.

The challenge offers four levels:

  • The Light Reader — read 13 books in a year, or 1 book every 4 weeks
  • The Avid Reader — read 26 books in a year, or 1 book every 2 weeks
  • The Committed Reader — read 52 books in a year, or 1 book every week
  • The Obsessed Reader — read 104 books in a year, or 2 books every week

Since I enjoy reading, and keeping track of which books I’ve read, I’ve decided to try this challenge in 2017.

I’ll be using Evernote, one of my favorite tools, to keep Tim’s list of recommendations, and to keep track of what I’ve read. You can view my progress at bit.ly/NTD-2017-Reading-Challenge.

You can also monitor the hashtag #vtReadingChallenge on social media to see what others are doing.
