Picking and choosing what to read is a challenge for even the most experienced, voracious readers. Choices abound: new releases, or a favorite from a few years back? Hardback, trade paperback, or e-book? Nonfiction or fiction? And that’s not even considering genre.
I’ve already talked about the kinds of books you’ll find me reading and reviewing here at Paperback Fool. However, I have other goals in mind when I read besides consuming new fiction. As I’ve mentioned before, I strive to educate myself daily, which means taking chances in my choices, and revisiting old favorites. In order to ensure I accomplish these goals, I’ve devised several reading projects for myself. These are self-guided, and I am beholden to no one should I slip up.
