30 Books in 30 Days – A Reading Challenge

Inspiration

My inspiration was 30 Books in 30 Days Challenge | Book Riot, with a few tweaks of my own, since I’ve been haphazard with what I read. So I went through my kindle app and picked a variety of books I’ve been meaning to read. There’s a wide assortment, I feel, with some non-fiction, and a diverse range in fiction genres. Could be a little more diverse, but I only had 30 slots, and let’s say over 30 choices, not counting all the Instapaper article collections I have sent to my Kindle app.

Everyone is welcome to follow along! Make your own rules, or follow mine. The only firm rule is that it has to be thirty books in thirty days. The definition of a book is up to your taste. I’m planning on doing similar challenges for poetry, plays, short stories, and essays at a later time.

I’ll be posting a review of each book, so bear with me as I shake the rust off my reviewing skills. I’ll start the challenge on September 1, 2020, and do a wrap-up post beside the book reviews so keep your eyes peeled, or subscribe to the blog.

My Personal Rules

These are the rules I set for myself for this challenge. Adjust the rules if you wish for your own personal challenge.

  1. Over 100 pages & able to read the entire book in a day. ~900 is my max length.
  2. Cannot reread over 15 books. (Not Applicable because all the books I chose I haven’t read yet.)
  3. A mix of genres, but cannot be a blogging book, writing craft book or a business book.
  4. Must already have a copy. No buying specifically for this.
  5. No box sets, anthologies, or series bundles. Individual books only. Can read a series, but they have to be individual books.
