2012 Cranberryfries Reading Challenge


I'm wanting to do a fun book/reading challenge this year
but haven't been able to come up with anything.

In the past I've done

2011: A-Z
2010: local authors
2009: specific genre
2008: just reaching a specific number (100)


Anyone have any ideas for me???

I totally think you should do debut authors or debut books. The Story Siren has a list of debuts coming out this year. She even has a list of books that came out last year.

I don't have any recommendations---but I do hope you'll write about the good books you read:)

Books with numbers in the title? That's all I have, or maybe a different country. Good Luck!

Like on FB, I'm no help, but let me know what you come up with!

Star Trek fiction. Ha, ha! But maybe something to do with a series'. Like '5 sets of series with 3 books and 3 sets of series with 5 books.'

You could do award winners. That would give you a pretty large pool to pull from with Newbery, Printz, Agatha Award, Coretta Scott King Award, ALA Notable Books etc...

or

Books set in America (or other specific locations)

or

Books with green covers

or

find a few bibliographies that sound interesting at your local library and read everything on their list

or

Only read books that have been recommended by two or more people

or

only books featuring luchador wrestlers as the main characters

or

do something topical. For example if you read a historical fiction novel about the War of the Roses follow it up with a nonfiction about the same era.

Good luck!
