Read Outside Your Comfort Zone Challenge

January 1-December 31, 2011

A Tapestry of Words is hosting the Read Outside Your Comfort Zone Challenge.  She writes:

I've seen some other bloggers initiating challenges for 2011, and it inspired me to come up with my own. So lo and behold...the Read Outside Your Comfort Zone Challenge!

I think most of us like to stick with certain genres of books, but every once in a while, it's good to explore something we might not normally read. You never know, you might end up discovering some fabulous reads!

This challenge encompasses any and all genres; the point is to pick some books you would ordinarily pass by or shy away from. Don't read many books with male protagonists? Don't quite see the appeal of werewolves? Never tried a graphic novel before? Jump on in (or at least test the water!) They do not all have to belong to the same genre - the goal is just to stretch your reading choices a little.

The levels:

1-3 books: Peering Out the Window
4-6 books: Opening the Door
7-10 books: Standing on the Porch
11-15 books: Walking through the Neighbourhood
16-20 books: Exploring the Unknown

At the end of the year there will be a giveaway (and hey, you can choose the easiest level and still be entered!)
