Reading Challenge for 2023

Reading Challenge for 2023

Thank you for your input for this year’s Reading Challenge! Here it is!

I included a print button below if you want to print it out and fill it in by hand, or like me, just copy and paste it into a document on your computer’s desktop and watch it fill in as the year progresses.

There are some new categories here, and we kept others we’ve all liked in the past. Blog reader responses suggested this as a good balance of genres and subject matter, with enough individual flexibility.

I’m looking forward to it and I lope you join us!

The photo above is my to-be-read pile in my office, generated when I did a pervasive book purge last summer, and got rid of most of what I’ve already read. Does yours look more like the photo below, or is it all virtual on an e-reader these days? Don’t forget that audio books count too, of which I am a particular fan.

I work to amplify good wherever I find it. I love color, texture, beauty, great ideas, nature, metaphor, deliciousness, genuine spirituality, and exploring new territory. I encourage authenticity, nurture creativity, champion sustainability, promote peace, and hope to foster a new renaissance where we all are free to be our most fulfilled, multifaceted, and terrific selves.
