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!)

Decades 2010

I thought of this one last year but found it late in the year. I may be setting myself up for failure but I'm going for it this year!

Decades 2010
Jan 1 to Dec 31

Decades 2010 Rules:
  1. Read a minimum of 10 books in 10 consecutive decades in 2010.
  2. Books published in the 2000’s do not count.
  3. Titles may be cross-posted with any other challenge.
  4. You may change your list at any time.
  5. Peruse the eligible book lists and reviews from previous years (found on the sidebar). Any book from that decade is eligible; it doesn’t have to be on the list to qualify. A good source to find out when books were published is wikipedia. For example if you follow this link, you will see how easy it is to search books by a particular decade. Another resource is
  6. Sign up through Mr. Linky. Please use the url of your specific post for this challenge rather than just your blog url.
  7. Come back and post the links to your reviews into Mr. Linky. Look to the right under categories to find the links to the various decades. You don’t have to, but you are encouraged to post all the books you’ve read for that decade if you’re participating in Decades 2010.
  8. Have fun reading your Decades 2010 books, and have a great year!

I'm pretty sure I can overlap Mind Voyages and 42!
