Cruising around Tumblr a few days ago, I found the ultimate year long book challenge. This challenge is perfect! What I really like about it is that it will push me beyond the normal books I read. I'm sure I'm going to find some really great books that I wouldn't have considered otherwise.
Another thing that is great about this challenge is that it's really flexible. You can read a single book for each challenge and read 52 books in a year. However, if you're like me and just don't have time to complete a single book a week, you can use one book to satisfy several categories. Either way works and either way will still introduce you to new genres.
A few of my friends on Facebook and Tumblr are also doing the challenge and I found a Goodreads group dedicated to this challenge. I've gotten a lot of titles from that group for the categories that I wasn't sure about.
So, here's the challenge. If you decide to participate, drop me a quick message. I'd love to hear what you decide to read and hear about your progress.
