I've been gone a while. I started reading fanfiction to escape and I got sucked in an abyss.

I have no idea if someone else is hosting similar challenges. I just grabbed some of what I have hosted before.

Here's to a happy year of great reading
Jan2023: Not much has changed. Writing a fanfiction now O_o as well as reading but I bought 7 new books in December and hope to get those read soon. Crossing fingers about adding challenges (late!)

PB&J Challenge

Peanut Butter and Jelly???? Picture Books & Juvenile Challenge! Becky loves reading these and so do I so I thought I'd jump in and join her. For sign-ups & more info go here

I created PB & J so I could 'challenge' myself to read more steadily in this genre. I would love some company!

Is it a traditional challenge? Yes and no. If you want to set a goal for yourself then yes it can be a traditional challenge. 12 picture books and 4 kids books (j fic) in three months or six months or whatever. But if you want to look at it as an ongoing, perpetual "challenge" then you may do that as well!

I'd love to set a goal of reading twelve picture books a month. I don't know that I can do it. But I'm hoping that if I make it a "challenge" I can.

I'm not going to set a number of books or a time frame. I'm going to read all the picture books in the house. Then make a list of all my juvenile books and start on them. I'm also going to cheat and start my list from January 2009.

This may take a while. Good thing there isn't a time frame.
