    Hello Fellow ILs,
    I am relatively new to IL. So still exploring all the wonderful forums and threads here. I appreciate the awesome job all the IL members and moderators are doing here. I want to check if there is any existing thread on Annual/ monthly reading challenge here on IL. IF there is, I would love to follow it. If not, I would welcome the opportunity to start the reading challenge for 2016 ( Ideally it should have been started in Jan 2016, but as I joined like last month). So hoping for half-yearly reading challenge. To start off, few ideas are
    1) one book per month
    2) 2 books per month
    3) 1 book a week ( ebooks mostly for me)
    We all can list the books are reading, what we liked about them, where do we get it from etc..

    Hope the book lovers here will find it useful.

    Welcome to IL. We presently don't have any reading challenges so thank you for starting one :). We do have a book club ( on and off club actually:grin:, should we pick another book biblioites?) So I am in Blessing and tagging few others.. @chillbreeze @desichica @daisy2015 @Amica @helpmeangel @Visasri and of course everyone else who loves a good challenge.

    Hey..this seems interesting! I don't get to dedicate enough time for reading of late, my 2.5 year old keeps me busy :) this could probably keep me motivated and get me going :)

    Thanks @PriyaSrini. I have also added book club tag to this thread, so hopefully that would distinguish this thread from existing book club ( more like a subsection of a larger book club). I would love to see responses from all those you tagged here and other book lovers as well.
    Happy Reading!!

    xoxo,
    Blessings1010

    @Kukudukuu, I hear you girl. Finding dedicated time in busy busy life is very difficult. I am also trying to catch up on long lost love for ma belovedd book corner. Good luck! and keep us posted on how it goes.

    @maggi32 awesome choice. I will add it in my list here as well.

    This month, I am reading
    1. The ten-year turnaround by Matthew Paulson ( almost half way through)
    2. The Introvert Advantage: How to Thrive in an Extrovert World by Marti Olsen Laney

    Interesting choice of books Blessing and Maggi. @Amica @Kukudukuu, what are you planing to read?

    I have just started J.D.Salinger's The Catcher in the rye and got The Hitchhicker's guide to the galaxy lined up next. This is my July reading plan.
