As we welcome in 2018, what are your reading goals? Are you planning to read a chapter every day? Hoping to read more Canadian? More fiction? More non-fiction? Are you hoping to listen to more audio books? Whatever your goals are, 2018 is a fresh start and this site will share suggestions for great books to read!
What are my goals? I have set a goal of 120 books in 2018 including at least 50% written by Canadian authors. I will strive to meet more Canadian authors which provides additional inside into the books that I am enjoying. I will start the year by meeting Elan Mastai and Claire Cameron at the Grimsby Author Series in a few weeks.
As the moderator of the CanadianContent Goodreads Group, I will be participating in the 2018 Reading BINGO which is a great way to read things that might be out of your comfort zone.
After enjoying a Cross Canada Reading Challenge in the summer of 2017, I will participate in a year long challenge to read a book set (or written by an author) in each province and territory. This challenge was a fun way to read books that I had never even heard of and likely would not have known to read.
Overall, I will continue to read each day, finding spare moments while waiting for the kids, at lunch and before bed and enjoying the great authors who take you away from the daily grind into new settings and adventures. I am looking forward to sharing my year of books with all of you and hoping you will comment and make suggestions for great books to share!
I’m always amazed by all the reading you do on top of the literary events and blogging and moderating the CanadianContent Goodreads Group. I would love to participate more in that group, but I don’t have enough hours in my day. I look forward to following your Cross Country Challenge – I love that idea – maybe I’ll even join in. Are you going East to West, W to E, or all over the place?
awe… thanks Naomi. I hope you can join the Cross Country Challenge – I am going to read all over the place. I too am amazed by all of your reading, blogging and especially the Shadow Giller!

I like that you prioritize Canadian lit. I’ve set that as one of my goals every now and then, but I end up having to prioritize other books. I like following your reviews and getting suggestions for when I can tackle one or two of these Canadian challenges in the future!

Thanks Jenna! I appreciate your feedback and love that you enjoy the reading suggestions. The challenges are fun as I end up reading things that I might not otherwise pick up.
