Challenge Accepted/ posted in: Reading
Do you like reading challenges? This is the time of year when everyone starts up their yearly challenges. They all sound fun to me. However, I use challenges mainly as a place to link up reviews of books that I’m already planning on reading and find new reviews of books that I might be interested in.
Using Feed Your Fiction Addiction’s handy dandy list, I found some challenges for 2018.
I mean, obviously, I’m doing this one.
Book Blogger Discussion Challenge
This lives at Feed Your Fiction Addiction and It Starts at Midnight. I like reading through the discussions each month.
The 365 Commenting Challenge
Nori wants people to leave one thoughtful comment on a blog a day. You can pick the blogs and/or she’ll give you a list of participants as a place to start. We all need to be better about interacting. I know I read a whole lot more blogs than I comment on.
Literary Voyage Around the World
This is something I do anyway but having another place to link up is good. I’d guess I might be a Literary Hitchhiker at 21-40 countries.
The British Books Challenge
This is a link up for books written by British authors. I read a lot of books that fit this category.
European Reading Challenge
This is for books in European countries.
Swords and Stars
This challenge has a list of 20 challenges that can be met by reading scifi and fantasy.
Memoir Reading Challenge
I read so many memoirs that I should definitely join this group. There is a list of categories.
Nonfiction Reading Challenge
This is a no-brainer for me. It is being run at Doing Dewey.
Beat the Backlist
I’m a Novel Knight in this challenge. You get points for every book you read published prior to 2018. Um, that might be most of the things I read in 2018. My goal is at least 100 books.
Passages to the Past
This is for historical fiction. I always read less historical fiction than I think I will unless I’m still on my historical romance kick into 2018.
It seems like a lot but they are categories I read normally anyway. What challenges are you doing?
