Since I get e-ARCs from NetGalley throughout the year you’d think that it would be super easy to join in the fun at the 2020 New Release Challenge over at (un)Conventional Bookworms with Linda and Brandee, right? Well. The reading of new releases has never been the problem – it’s the remembering to go and actually link up that review that has been my downfall in previous years. I have to figure out a better way, that’s all there is to it as far as a solution goes. Anyway –
I’m joining the 2020 New Release Challenge for a different reason this year. I’m trying to actually read the books I buy – novel concept, right? In truth, they often end up on my TBR pile and then being part of a future “backlist” challenge. *sigh* So. Although they would qualify, I’m not planning on counting the NetGalley ARCs for this challenge — I am counting the actual newly released books that I’ve purchased, read, and reviewed. I need something to push me to read those newly purchased books nearer to their release date, and I believe this challenge may help form some new habits. We shall see how it goes.
If you’d like to join in the fun then head over to the signup page with all the details through the text link above or the graphic link on the upper side of this post. My goals? I’m aiming for: 31-60 books per year – New Release Pro. I believe I can do that level (at least for I buy a lot of books) the challenge is going to be in keeping everything, every place updated. Hmmm… maybe there should be a Challenge to actually update our Challenges? (grin) I’d sign up! Good luck if you’re joining in the fun & happy reading times.
My list of actual read and reviewed New Releases is in the next section.
