Fun Challenges

As a new blogger, I unfortunately discovered the many fun reading challenges other book-bloggers are running shortly after the new year.  This meant most sign-ups were over.  In a way, this was a good thing, since it kept me from adding anything else to an already pretty ambitious project!  However, I think the community aspect of completing a challenge together could be fun.  Fortunately, I discovered Maphead’s Book Blog which led me to two Non-Fiction challenges with ongoing sign-ups 😀

I will now be participating in (appropriately) the Dewey Decimal Challenge hosted by The Introverted Reader at the Master level (goal: 16-20 non-fiction books) as well as the Non-Fiction Non-Memoir Challenge hosted by My Book Retreat at the Master’s Degree level (goal: 25 non-fiction, non-memoir books).  Although I hope that won’t be a challenge, since that would mean my semester had suddenly gotten a lot busier, I’m really not signing up for the extra goal.  So far, the most rewarding part of blogging has been the interactions with other bloggers and readers, which I look forward to expanding through these challenges.  Happy reading!

  1. I am impressed by so much nonfiction reading! Whew. My goal to read at least 25% nonfiction this year seems lame all the sudden. 🙂

    I joined an audio book challenge at Teresa’s Reading Corner at the married level — which means 25 or more audio books. I’ve already listened to 2 so far this year, so I’m doing ok!

    • Thanks Jessica! I’m sure you read much more YA and other genres then I do though! Good luck with your audio book challenge – it sounds like you’re ahead already 🙂

  2. Thanks for signing up for the Non-Fiction Non-Memoir challenge! You’re one of only a few who are trying for the Master’s Degree! Good luck!

  3. Thanks for signing up for the Dewey Decimal Challenge! I hope you enjoy the books you choose!

  4. Glad you will be joining me for a few challenges. Glad I was also able to be of assistance !
