2015 Clocks, Cogs, and Mechanisms Reading Challenge

January 1, 2015 – December 31, 2015

This challenge was created back in 2012 for all the lovers of steampunk fiction that couldn’t find a reading challenge to match.  After missing a year it is back and being sponsored by our blog.

Steampunk in case you did not know is an up and coming genre of fiction that takes place in older time periods, typically Victorian and involves lots of steam-powered technology. If you want some more information about steampunk follow the link for more information: Steampunk
This challenge runs from January 1st – December 31st.  Sign up ends September 30th, 2015.

What do I let count as steampunk?
You can count books like “The Time Machine” by H.G. Wells and other books that are considered precursors to steampunk, I have no problem with you counting graphic novels like Full Metal Alchemist.

They do not have to be on a paper to count, your ebooks count as well.
You can also count these books towards other challenges.

Brass Gears: Read 1-3 steampunk books
Flight goggles: 4-6 books
Button-up boots: 7-12 books
Clockwork Corset: 13+ books

I would like to go for Clockwork Corset, but I don’t want to take on more than I can handle. I am going to do at least brass gears and see if I can work my way up to the levels.

This reading challenge is hosted by Writing Our Fairy Tale. For more information and to sign-up, please see this post.
