I’m going to try something new! Yes, as the title says, a Reading Challenge.
I don’t know where I’ve been, maybe these have been around for awhile, and I just missed it. What I do know is that I saw one last summer, and decided to try for it, and found it intriguing and stretching. It got me to read books I might not have read otherwise, in hopes of filling all the categories.
I’m going to kinda figure this out as we go along, but I think I’ll just have this for the entire year. I hope to post updates about this periodically, maybe monthly, or quarterly… (If it feels like it’s too easy to have this for the entire year, I might end it after June and start a new one…)
There are 26 categories, which means a book in one of these categories every two weeks.
I’d like to offer a prize at the end, hoping that there will be participants that hit every category. I’m not quite sure yet how this all will work. I think there will be different prize levels. I’d like to say there will be some kind of prize for everyone that participates. (Unless I end up with too many participants, then I will have to do a drawing from all participants) For example – doing 10 categories put you to one prize level, and then 20 another, and then if you get all 26, that would be the top prize. Like I said, I’m kind of learning as I go!
These categories are not necessarily original with me. I did a search for reading challenges, and then picked through them, added a few of my own, trying to come up with a list that sounds interesting and challenging to me. 🙂
Please leave a comment to join this challenge! And then we’ll stay in touch throughout the year, do updates, etc.
Thanks so much for joining me in this challenge, I look forward to seeing all the books that get listed!!
