Genre Challenge

November 1, 2008 - November 1, 2009

Samantha from Bookworms and Tea Lovers is hosting The Genre Challenge. This year long challenge asks readers to read from at least 10 of the following genres: crime fiction, detective fiction, mystery fiction, horror fiction, thriller fiction, romance fiction, science fiction, action/adventure fiction, fantasy fiction, realistic fiction, historical fiction, and western fiction. (Samantha provides a helpful link which defines these!) Participants may choose to read 10, 11, or 12 books - but each book must be from a different genre.

The "rules" are:
  • You may not read more than 1 book per genre
  • All books must be read within the challenge period
  • No crossovers within the challenge, each genre should have a separate book
  • Crossovers with other challenges are allowed
  • Audio books are allowed, graphic novels are not
  • You may make a list of books, but that’s not mandatory and you can change your picks at any time before or during the challenge
To join, go to Samantha's post about the challenge and read the section: How to Join.

Oh, and did I mention there will be book prizes? Yes, there will! Samantha is also looking for someone to design a graphic which will earn them an extra chance at a prize. So what are you waiting for? Get on over there and sign up!!
