2018 Reading Assignment | Fall Semester Book List!

Michelle and Berls @ Because Reading

This post and subsequent updates will be linked at 2018 Reading Assignment Challenge Page.

I had considered sitting out for the year 2018 for this challenge, but the newest changes made by our challenge hosts happened to be quite appealing, so I decided to go for it anyway.  And then I briefly considered sitting out the last half of the year because of my ongoing reading slump...

But I figured that if I don't pass, I don't pass.  At the very least, I still want to make my list for the Fall Semester and try to finish it.

Here is a recap of the newest changes made to 2018's Reading Assignment Challenge:
  • Commit to reading 1, 2, 3, or 4 books a month and MAKE A LIST of the SPECIFIC books you will read in January – June.  This is one of our changes… rather than committing for a year, you’re just picking the books for the first half of the year.  You’ll make a new list and commit to a new number of books per month in June for July – December.  So 2 books a month works for January – June, but only 1 for July – December?  That’s fine!

The Levels:
Reading Level 1:
12 books (1 book/month)

Reading Level 2:
24 books (2 books/month)

Reading Level 3:
36 books (3 books/month)

Reading Level 4:
48 books (4 books/month)

And then, to recap continuing features--the challenge is separated into four quarters, and each quarter will be a new start to receiving a new grade, with the same list of books you have pre-picked for 2018.

Quarterly Grading System
  • I made an A! Read all your books all three months of the quarter.
  • I made a B! Read all your books for two months of the quarter.
  • I made a C! Read all your books for one month of the quarter.
  • I made an F! Didn’t read all your books during any months of the quarter.

I will be continuing with Reading Level 1.  Plain and simple, I'm not interested in over-taxing myself.  So, for the second half of the year, I will be reading a total of 6 books, 1 book per month.
