Bibliophilic Books Challenge

January 1 - December 31, 2010

Lesley is hosting the Bibliophilic Books Challenge.  Here's what she says:

Like many other book bloggers, I enjoy reading books about books and reading. I've been spending my time lately perusing my home library and also browsing Amazon for suitable suggestions to offer my husband as Christmas gifts for me, his favorite bibliophile. What I noticed is that while I've read quite a few books about books, I also own or want quite a few more that I haven't read. And then I thought, that would probably make for a good reading challenge. So here it is, the 2010 Bibliophilic Books Challenge!

The challenge will be to read a set number of books that focus on books or reading. These can be fictional works, such as The Eyre Affair or The Shadow of the Wind; or non-fiction works such as 84, Charing Cross Road or The Polysyllabic Spree. There are hundreds, if not thousands, of books out there that would fit this challenge.

The challenge begins on January 1, 2010 and ends on December 31, 2010. You must sign up for the challenge by January 31st, 2010.

Only books read during the challenge will count. You may reread books as well as cross-reference books with other challenges.

You do not need to make out a list when you sign up and you can change your mind on particular book selections throughout the challenge. I like to have flexibility for my reading whims!

There are three levels for you to choose from:

  • Bookworm: Read three books

  • Litlover: Read six books

  • Bibliomaniac: Read twelve books 

  • To join, go to Bibliophilic Books Challenge.
