A Reading Checklist for 2015 (PopSugar)

If you’re the Reading Challenge/New Year’s Resolution/long-term goal type, this checklist from Goodwill Librarian is full of good ideas (and a few weird ones. A book with antonyms in the title? Um, OK).


I like the idea of consciously diversifying, but I also like to read and reread all the books written by a specific, beloved author in the hopes that s/he will one day come knocking on my door to award me “#1 Fan” status and the accompanying baseball cap. So… dilemma.

Anyway, whether your book hobby is broad or narrow, happy reading!

Update: If you want to see how my 2014 reads stacked up against this challenge, check out this post from January 2015.

    • Also I found these for antonyms… (Cause I honestly didn’t know what an antonym was!)

      The Agony and the Ecstasy
      Irving Stone’s powerful and passionate biographical novel of Renaissance artist and genius Michelangelo

      Up the Down Staircase
      Much beloved novel by Bel Kaufman. An idealistic teacher clashes with school bureaucracy. (Think this will be the one i read!)

      War and Peace
      Tolstoy’s sweeping masterpiece mirrors Russian society in the Napoleonic Wars.

    • Ohh, tons! I actually wrote an article a while back about banned books that includes a bunch of great ones: http://goo.gl/0Ihjq0
      My favorites are probably Beloved, To Kill a Mockingbird, and Slaughterhouse-Five. Virtually every classic has been banned, though, so you’ll have plenty of options!

  1. My friend and I were just talking about this yesterday, specifically that book with antonyms in the title. We thought of War and Peace but don’t know if we could commit because it’s a long classic. (and I just read Les Miserables.) I told her to read The Death and Life of Charlie St. Cloud instead. Haha!
