This is the first year that I will be hosting the Genre Variety Reading Challenge. If there is already a challenge similar to this, please can you let me know as I don’t want to encroach on anyone’s ideas. This is just something that came to me that I hope will be fun and that others will enjoy.
But what is it?
The challenge is to read books from different genres throughout the year. I have found that blogging has opened my eyes to so many genres that I would never have tried before, simply from recommendations, and the idea of this challenge is to keep that going. The challenge is to read a large variety of genres within one year.
Other Important Info;
Runs from January 1st 2013 until December 31st 2013. Sign ups will be open until December 1st 2013.
There are five levels to challenge yourself too. You may move up a level but not go down a level. These are all outlined below. Please mention in your sign up post which level you will aim for.
The genres you choose to read are up to you. As long as every book is different, whichever genre you wish to read you can.
Every month there will be a post on this blog to link up to your update post / review(s)
There will be a giveaway at the end of the challenge, and maybe a few within the year but these are TBD.
To sign up, you will need to write a post saying which level you are challenging yourself too and then use the linky list. Non-Bloggers may post in the comments of this post.
