I love a good challenge…. the competitive edge in me is sharpened and in most cases I am only competing with myself. So lets look at what Challenges I have accepted this year as well as the ones that are still in play.
(Jan 1 – Dec 31 2010)
Ok – I seriously love all things Gilmore. This is my favorite show of all time… and well, dont even get me started…. just read my post if you want to know more.
This one is a challenge to read books that are mentioned in this popular show and there is A LOT.
Emily: Read 5 books from at least two different categories.
Lorelai: Read 10 books from at least three different categories.
Rory: Read 20 books from at least four different categories
(I am trying for the Rory)
(Jan 1 – Dec 31 2010)
Ooh I love historical fiction! This one has several levels as well:
- Curious – Read 3 Historical Fiction novels.
–The Mini YA Reading Challenge – Read 12 Young Adult novels.
–Just My Size YA Reading Challenge – Read 25 Young Adult novels.
–Stepping It Up YA Reading Challenge – Read 50 Young Adult novels.
–Super Size Me YA Reading Challenge – Read 75 Young Adult novels.
I am going for the Just My Size.
These challenges can still be signed up for. Click on their title under the post and it will take you there! You can also mix and match in the categories so say that you read a YA book that also happens to fall into the GilMore Girl Category – you can count that book in both spots.
This one is for all the great Christian Fiction Reads that won the Christy award in 2009. As in the other challenges you choose the level you want to commit to. This is a good challenge for me as I enjoy good Christian Fiction reads and am probably missing out on some authors I have never experienced before.
I am super excited to take part in this one! This challenge will focus each month on a different social injustice in the world. Reading will be suggested and encouragement to get involved when you fill called to is also a part of the challenge. This one is near and dear to my heart!
This challenge will be my cryptonite…. my mount everest…. my…. well you get the point. Would you belive that I am not a library frequenter? Dont even have a library card? It is true… I will go to their book sales but a book borrower I am not…. or wasn’t…
J Kayes challenge here reminds me that I need to support my local library and so – I am…. I will.
Uhhhh… lets just say I dont think this one will be a problem…..
Aug 1 2009 – July 31 2010
This one as you can see, is already in progress and I have really “muggled” it up so far by producing… nada. BUT- I have not given up and as two of these books also cross into the Gilmore Challenge… count on seeing an amazing some back int the 2nd half of this challenge.
