2017 Reading List · book challenge

2017 Reading Challenge


I have debated for almost a month about whether or not to actually write this post, but here I am. In 2017 I am attempting again the reading challenge issued by Tim Challies, this year hosted over at Visual Theology. This post will, Lord willing, reflect my reading log. If the book is linked, that means I have reviewed it.

I have chosen to print out the entire plan, and go with the “Obsessed” plan, but the “discard all the rules” option, and read whatever strikes my fancy, whenever. I’m not 100% sure I’m allowed to copy & paste the plan into my own blog, so I’ve linked you to it up above. Below I will just list the category and the book that I chose, once I’ve started and/or finished said book.

Whether you’ve chosen an ambitious reading plan or not, I hope you *are* reading this year! And if you can recommend something to me, please do so in the comments! I’m also on Goodreads, but for the life of me I cannot figure out how to link up with anyone not my Facebook friend. If you can help me out with that, that would be swell!
