Just when I thought I have signed up enough reading challenges to last me for a year (or perhaps two), I found some more new challenges coming right up my alley! Didn't I mention to you guys that this stuff is addictive? :D You bet it is. Anyway, let me share these with you and hopefully you will join in the fun as well.
  1. From The Stacks Reading Challenge

    The rules: Read 5 books that you have already purchased, have been meaning to get to, have been sitting on the nightstand and haven't read before (No buying of new books, and no getting sidetracked by the lure of the holiday bookstore displays).

    Time Frame: November 1, 2007 through January 30, 2008

    (Please click here for more details.)

  2. "What's In A Name?" Reading Challenge

    The rules: Choose one book from each of the following categories.

    1. A book with a color in its title. Examples might include: The Amber Spyglass, The Red Pony, Blue Blood

    2. A book with an animal in its title. Examples might include: The Hound of the Baskervilles, To Kill a Mockingbird, Julie of the Wolves

    3. A book with a first name in its title. Examples might include: Jane Eyre, the Harry Potter books, Anne of Green Gables

    4. A book with a place in its title. Examples might include: From Russia with Love, A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, Out of Africa

    5. A book with a weather event in its title. Examples might include: The Snows of Kilimanjaro, Red Storm Rising, Tornado Alley

    6. A book with a plant in its title. Examples might include: Where the Red Fern Grows, The Name of the Rose, Flowers for Algernon

    You may overlap books with other challenges, but please don't use the same book for more than one category. (For example, you can use The Red Pony for either a "color" book or an "animal" book, but not for both.)

    Time Frame: January 1, 2008 through December 31, 2008

    Debi, I'm still working with the list... I'm currently stuck with two categories so I've to rummage my pile more thoroughly the next time, hehe.
