Podcast: Consuming a healthy reading diet

This week, Rob and Kate look at our reading in 2015 so far, to ask if we have a healthy and balanced reading diet, as well as catching up with a listener email on TBRs and what we’ve been reading lately.

We both use GoodReads to keep track of our reading, and have set ourselves Reading Challenges for 2015. Rob has set a Challenge of 52, and has read 21 so far (the missing title is Shoot to Kill by Steve Cole):

Rob's GoodReads Reading Challenge 2015


Kate has set herself a Challenge of 75, and has read 37 so far:

Kate's GoodReads Challenge 2015, books 18 to 37

Kate's GoodReads Challenge 2015, books 1 to 17


What do you think – have we read a varied, balanced selection? What could we read more of? What is there already a lot of in our reading diets? Does it matter if someone doesn’t necessarily read a little bit of everything?

Thanks to Sarah for getting in touch about how she’s used Books On The Nightstand’s book bingo with her TBR.
