You guys have 'infected' me... I'm going to submit to some reading challenges for the first time this year!
The goal of the Mount TBR Reading Challenge, hosted by My Reader's Block is to read as many books as possible which you already owned before 2014. As I currently have 16 physical unread books and 13 unread books on my Kindle, I hope to make a good dent in this numbers with the Mount TBR Challenge. My goal is somewhere between Mount Blanc (24 books) and Mt. Vancouver (36)!
Christian Novels hosts the What Countries Have I Visited reading challenge. The goal is to visit as many countries possible through your reading. I love visiting new places through my reading, so this challenge is right up my alley! My goal is the level Vacationer, for which I have to visit 10 countries.
I never really dove into the works of Shakespeare, so why not give this a try in 2014. The Shakespeare reading challenge is hosted by Lianne at caffeinatedlife.net. Because this is my first foray into Shakespearean literature, my goal is (only) 3 of his works.
I've been reading a few classics every year, but I don't mind being challenged to expand my classic reading and maybe discover some new authors or time periods. The Back To The Classics challenge at Books and Chocolate has no levels, but there are certain categories to fulfill. My goal is to fill all 10 of them!
1. A 20th century classic
2. A 19th century classic
3. A classic by a woman author
4. A classic in translation
5. A classic about war
6. A classic by an author who is new to you
7. An American classic
8. A classic mystery, suspense or thriller
9. A historical fiction classic (Any classic set at least 50 years before the time it was written)
10. A classic that has been adapted into a movie or tv series
