No, not challenging reading. Reading challenges! I've started (and not completed) several reading challenges in the course of this blog, but have never officially joined one of the numerous reading challenges that are shared across the blogosphere. I gave up on my personal reading challenges some time ago, but I've been inspired by Mr. Schu's Newbery challenge. I've had a perpetual Newbery challenge for many years, but it's been dormat for quite some time (I'm also reading the Honor books). Once I whittle down my TBR pile to a respectable amount, I'm going to dive right back into the canon. Not only that, I'm planning to get through those difficult 1920s novels once and for all.
Not to be outdone, LibLaura5 is hosting a Caldecott challenge. Hmmm.
If the Newbery and Caldecott challenges aren't your cup of tea, check out A Novel Challenge, where you're certain to find a reading challenge just for you. While most reading challenges consist of a variety of genres and titles, several involve reading a specific title (like the Forever Amber challenge).
