26 Books Challenge // Reading in 2015

Confession: I love to read

Truer confession: All too often I don’t make time for ‘real’ reading. Sure I read all day long … blog posts, internet articles, Facebook updates, but not.real.reading.

Another confession: I love a challenge. The challenge does not need to involve anyone else, I just love to challenge myself.
Is anyone else out there like this?!

So, how perfect is the 26 Books Challenge that Erin of Bringing Up Burns came up with for 2015?!

26 Books

A list of twenty-six prompts, challenging you to read books YOU want to read.
No one else is picking for you, hurrah!
I hate being told what to do.

I decided to make up a little bookmark version of the list for my ‘secret’ reading group and thought why not share it with anyone else taking this challenge.

The PDF file is formatted to print {4} bookmarks sized 2.75 x 8.5

If you want to get F-A-N-C-Y print them on cardstock and laminate them!
Then you can carry the list with you, tuck it in your book and cross ’em off.
If you don’t need four, give them away, challenge someone else to READ MORE in 2015.

** And if you haven’t already, go ‘sign up’ by commenting on Erin’s original IG photo and be sure to share along your reading journey using the hashtag #26BookswithBringingUpBurns. **

{Thanks Erin for your crazy book-reading heart thinking this up!!}


  1. This is soooooo great!! I FLOVE it. And you. Thank you!!!

  2. I saw this list all over Facebook today. It’s a great list. I like your book mark better. It’s more colorful and easier to read. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Love this! Thanks pal!

  4. What are your books? If you are like me, you have it printed out with a book title written (or typed) next to each one.

    • Haha! I wish I was as together as I must appear, LOL. I don’t like to pre-plan things like this if you can believe that … kind of like meal planning. I like to have a few choices on hand and pick from them depending on what I feel like at that moment. SO, I have an exstensive list of books I want to read on a private Amazon “Library” list that I’ll probably refer to when I’m looking for my next book. I’ll try to re-cap here monthly what I’m reading / have read. What are you reading?!
