2012 Reading Challenges

Last year I saw a couple of reading challenges that looked amazing, scribbled their details in my diary and did mini-reviews of the books for myself. They encouraged me to read books I’d not considered before and made me feel as though I were having a healthy reading ‘diet’.

This year I am going to try to read more widely in areas/ genres I’m not so familiar with.

For my reading lists, click the 2nd link in each bullet point, to sign up, click the 1st.

Here we go!

We want YOU to read French authors! – is brilliant for me as I study French and am always trying to read more French literature (whether in translation or the original). I’ve signed up for the Jules Verne level (10 books)

European Reading Challenge – one of the genres I’m hoping to read more of is ‘European literature’ (scarily large genre, I know). I’ve signed up for the Five Star (Deluxe Entourage) Level. (>5 books)

The Eastern European Reading Challenge – is the one that got me hooked on reading challenges. I read 4 books for it last year and am aiming to do the same again this year.

Support Your Local Library – is one close to my heart. Libraries are being closed all over the UK or being run by volunteers. It is saddening to think that a generation of children may lose the chance to enjoy reading through no fault of their own. I’m signing up for level 1 (12 books) but judging by my reading rate, I’m going to read a few more than that…

12 in 12 – is one of the craziest challenges I’ve seen so far. The idea is to create 12 categories and read 12 books for each one as many books as you’d like/ can for each one. Long live reading! (And thanks for the clarification.) 🙂
