Reading Challenges Part 2

I accidentally posted before I finished so here is the rest.

Along the way I discovered several other reading challenges including In Their Shoes Reading Challenge (reading biographies, autobiographies, and memoirs),the Book Awards Reading Challenge (reading books that have won awards), the Themed Reading Challenge (4 books about any theme between January and June), To Be Read Challenge, Book Around the World, Africa Reading Challenge, and others.

Here is my list of eight genres for now:
  1. Biographies (to meet In Their Shoes Challenge as well)
  2. Mysteries
  3. Fantasies (Mythopaeic Awards Challenge)
  4. Westerns
  5. Books about world religions (can be fiction or non-fiction but primarily non-fiction)
  6. Books previously purchased and not yet read (there are boxes and shelves of these)
  7. One book from each of the 10 Dewey sections (will overlap with other sections)
  8. Books about other continents and cultures (Books Around the World/African Reading Challenge).
Numbers 2, 3, and 4 will cover Book Awards Challenge as well. Many categories will overlap and YA or children's literature can be included as well. More specific lists will be added in the next week or two although I reserve the right to edit and change the lists as needed.

Wow, very cool. 56 books in a year? Um, that's more than one a week. Some of us snails out here will have to be content to cheer the crowds on. Good luck to you!
