I’m taking part in 6 Challenges this year. Clicking on the challenge titles takes you to my Progress Pages:
Calendar of Crime
Twelve books, one representing each month, are required for a completed challenge. In addition challengers are encouraged to read more than one/all category/ies for each month.
So far I have read 11 books that qualify for the different categories covering 9 months of the year – nothing yet for January, April and June.
European Reading Challenge
The aim is to read books by European authors or books set in European countries, each book must be by a different author and set in a different country. I’m going for the FIVE STAR (DELUXE ENTOURAGE) which is to: Read at least five books by different European authors or books set in different European countries.
So far, I’ve read 4.
Mount TBR Challenge
Books must be owned by you prior to January 1, 2019. No library books. Any reread may count, regardless of how long you’ve owned it prior to 2019, provided you have not read it in last five years. I’m aiming to get to the top of Mont Blanc, that is to read 24 books and hope to move up to the higher levels if I can.
I have read 15 up to now.
What’s In A Name?
So far I have read 3 books from the 6 categories. The categories I have yet to fill are books with titles that fit into these 3 categories:
- A precious stone/metal
- A month or day of the week
- Contains both the words “of” AND “and”
The Virtual Mount TBR Challenge
This is for books you do not own. They may be borrowed from the library, a friend, or anywhere else. I am aiming to climb Mount Rum Doodle – that is, 12 books.
So far I have read 6 library books.
When Are You Reading Challenge
For this you are required to read one book predominantly set in each of the twelve time periods, from pre-1300 up to the Future.
I have read books for 4 of the periods so far covering the periods 1500 – 1699, 1900-1919, 1920-1939 and 1940-1959.
