Popsugar’s 2015 Reading Challenge

As a college student I do a lot of reading, but it’s mostly textbooks, PowerPoints, and other school-related articles. With graduation coming up in a few months, I am very much looking forward to being done with school so that I can enjoy reading for leisure again. However, there’s no reason why I can’t start reading now…I have the free time, I just need some motivation.

My bus ride to and from campus each day is about 45 minutes. I usually listen to music, read blogs, and waste that time on social media…not the best use of time. I recently found out that our local library AND state library each offer a free eBook database so I’m going to give that a try. This way, I can use those 45 minutes to read a book and get lost in another world…one of my favorite things about books and movies!

I came across Popsugar’s 2015 Reading Challenge last week and thought it was a genius idea! The goal is to read 50 books but branch out to other authors and genres that you wouldn’t normally reach for. I’ve completed 3 of the 50 so far and will be updating this list as the year continues! If you’re a Goodreads member, feel free to follow or friend me to keep up with my progress.
