Themed Reading Challenge 2011

February 15-August 15, 2011

I am hosting the Themed Reading Challenge this year at So Many Precious Books, So Little Time.  I write:

The Themed Reading Challenge is a challenge that was thought up and hosted by Wendy at Caribousmom.  She was looking for someone to take over hosting it and I jumped at the chance.

This is a six month challenge designed to help readers clear books from their to-be-read stacks which center around a common theme or themes.  

  1. Readers may join at ANY TIME between now and August 15th.
  2. Books should be chosen from the reader’s TBR pile (this may be an actual physical pile or a virtual pile).
  3. The goal is to read AT LEAST 5 books linked by theme and review them.
  4. Overlaps with other challenges are allowed.
  5. Readers may change their list of books OR their theme(s) at any time.
Readers may choose from three different levels of participation:
  1. Read at least 5 books which share the same theme.
  2. Read at least 5 books which share TWO themes.
  3. Read at least 5 books which share MORE THAN TWO themes.
Themes can be geographic, genre, author, subject matter, or anything in between! Last year’s themes were wonderfully creative and varied…check out the sign up links from the 2010 challenge to get an idea of what others have chosen for themes.
