Reading Jar Challenge // Wanna Join?!


Good morning, readers! :)

Today I bring to you a reading challenge that I recently came up with. Upon realizing that I have lots of books that I have not even read (and I'm constantly buying more... O.O), I decided that I need to remedy that.

Thus, the challenge.

And what's a challenge without friends to keep me accountable? ;) If you'd like to take part in the reading challenge, you can do so for any reason. It's not hard – just read books!


In my case, the purpose of the challenge is to encourage myself to read all the books I own but have not read. (Yes, there are literal tons of them.) Then, I'll reward myself with a money system. Once I finish a book, I'll put money in the jar (pictured above) according to how much the book is worth. Then I'll only use money from the jar to buy more books!

Here's what I'm planning to do...

Owned book -- $2
Library book -- $1
All review books (physical copy and e-copies) -- $2
Ebook -- $1

If y'all want to join, you can decide what type of reward would work best for you. Maybe you want to use candy or free time. Maybe you want to finish multiple books before sticking something 'in the jar'. Or maybe you want to follow the system I set for myself. It's totally up to you! :D 

Y'all wanna join? Post the graphic on your blog (if you have one, and then only if you want xD), and read, read, READ! :D I'll be adding updates to how this is going in my monthly recaps this year as well as on the new '2018 Reads'.

Have a blessed day, all! :)

  1. This sounds awesome, but I have no unread books at the moment on my physical book shelf. I hope it all goes well, though! :)

  2. Sounds like a nice idea! However, I have a Goodreads goal of 50 books, and I think that'll be a little more incentive than money. But you go for it, Faith!!!

  4. I saw this on goodreads! It sounds so cool, but I feel like I would be broke very fast... and I like makeup as well as books. XD

    So it's probably not for me, but I might lower the money to one quarter and try! XD
