#Discussions with Crossroads: 2018 Reading Challenge! #IReadEverywhere #CrossroadReviewchallenge

Hello, devoted Crossroads readers!  We are already full in for 2018!  We wanted to share something with you about getting more out of your reading for the coming year! We have a wonderful reading challenge for you and something to help you get through it! No missed revelations here! This is a thing we would like to do every year! So join us! 

You know that here at Crossroads we LOVE reading!! One thing that has changed for the coming year is quality over quantity.  We have decided to bring you a new format (that you have already seen). As well as do more reviews for older titles, classics, and more versus only new ones.  

This year we will have been going strong for almost 10 years! I can't believe that we have been reviewing books that long. Our goal for 2018 is to read books and share them with you. 

So where do you start on your 2018 Reading Challenge? Well, fantastic books of course!!

Step 1: Choose fantastic books

1. Choose a book that was published in the month you were born 
2. Choose a book that the cover is your favorite color
3. Have someone else choose a book for you
4. Choose a book blind
5. Choose a book from a genre you don't normally read
6. Choose a banned book
7. Have us choose a book for you! (check out our Monday meme) 
8.  Choose a book with a cover you hate 
9. You choose a book for us! (just comment on our Monday post with what book we should read) 
10. Choose a book from your TBR that has been there the longest 

Step 2: Make time for reading 

Making a list of books you want to read is the first step the next one is to find the time to read.  What I do with my oldest daughter is she reads a book over the week. So we take the full amount of chapters and divide that by 7.  So then she knows how many chapters she needs to get done each day.  

Making a schedule like this can help you stay on track with how you want to finish your books!  

Step 3: Track your reading

There are some great apps out there to track your reading the one I use is the BookOutApp that you can only find on IOS at this time.  But it will keep track of how much you read and give you a fantastic infographic when you're done.  

To just track the books you read you could go to Goodreads, Booklikes, Bullet Journal, and more! It is all up to you how you want to track your reading.
