It’s time for #Sixtybooks in 2017! In 2016, we had over 300 people sign up for the challenge and we are hoping to beat that number this year by spreading the word and getting even more people to make reading a part of their daily lives. For those who are new to our fantastic group of readers, the goal is simply to make reading a regular part of our daily lives and encourage other people to do the same. It’s not a competition (the only person you are competing with is yourself!) and it’s not just about the number.
For this year’s challenge, we will be keeping #Sixtybooks on Twitter and Facebook. We will also be using #Sixtybooks on Instagram for those who want to share their reading in pictures. Our goal is to be active on all three by sharing more about our progress and the books we are reading. We are planning some new activities as well:
- Week long “#Sixtybooks sprints” that we dedicate to catching up on our reading a few times per year
- At least two or three live Twitter chats
- A book giveaway raffle just before summer
As always, you can keep track of your books however you like. Both Melissa and I use Goodreads to keep track and I also use Google maps to pin my books by setting which is a lot of fun.
Signup is the same. Fill in the #Sixtybooks in 2017 form by clicking here.
We are looking forward to another great year of reading!
