We’ve got a challenge just for you, and a free kit to help you see it through. Here on Modern Mrs Darcy, we love reading, but don’t believe it’s a competitive sport. We care about quality way more than we care about quantity. Reading well doesn’t necessarily mean reading more.
We know reading is a very personal thing, and your reading list should reflect that. So this year, we present our choose-your-own-adventure reading challenge. The Modern Mrs Darcy 2017 Reading Challenge. Get more out of your reading life in 2017 with this choose-your-own-bookish-adventure challenge! What do you want more of? Do you want your books to bring you more fun, or to challenge you more deeply?
Are you reading fluff but craving substance, or does your steady diet of Serious Literature have you yearning to lighten up a bit? Has 2016 left you searching for an enjoyable escape, or has it pushed you to get serious about how you spend your downtime? Choose the path that helps you get where you want to go, whether that means finding the fun in reading again, or stretching yourself with titles of depth and breadth. For some of you, that path will look like the deluxe plan of all 24 categories. Maybe that’s the path for you. Plans are worthless, but planning is everything.
Maybe Eisenhower didn’t have your reading life in mind when he said this, but it absolutely applies. This challenge is simple and doable, but it provides the structure you need to approach your reading list with intention in 2017. As soon as you sign up, start thinking about what you want to read, and when you’re going to do it. What do you want your reading life to look like next year? Planning is everything, even though your plan will likely evolve as the year goes on. This is big: make a way to record what you read and what you thought of it.
Make it as simple or complex as you’d like. If you don’t use a reading journal, now’s the time to start. I still update my Goodreads account occasionally because I love to search and sort my titles.
