Print Only 2019 Reading Challenge

Hosted by: Tina @ As Told By Tina
Dates: January 1 - December 31, 2019

Goal of the challenge: To read as many physical books as you can. These can be books you’ve purchased, been sent, or borrowed. As long as it's a physical book, then it counts.


I have thousands of print books in my house. Real, physical books. I love 'em. I'm addicted to them. Love the way they smell and the way the paper feels in my hand. But more and more I just don't read physical, printed books. In fact, this year only eight of the books I read were actual physical books — the major part of my reading was done on various e-readers.

Now, I don't think there's anything wrong with e-readers. In fact, I love them too. And I do believe I read much faster on them than I do when I'm reading paper books. But I don't want to abandon print for electronic, and that looks like where I'm headed.

So the Print Only Reading Challenge has come along at a really good time. I'm signing up at Level One ("Out of Print" / 1-10 books), but would really love to do a little better than that. During the year I'll be tracking my progress and keeping all my lists on my challenge blog (HERE).


  1. I love books but I am sort of addicted to my kindle too. I really like checking out library books on it -- I think that is brilliant! I just really read whichever is the most easily attainable.

    1. I've never checked out an e-book from the library. But it sounds like something else I'd get addicted to if I tried it.


Welcome and thanks for leaving me a comment. I love to hear from visitors.

Also, please note that while I appreciate the thought, I don't play the blog awards game. I think you all deserve awards! But you might think about becoming a follower of my blog -- that would really be the best award.
