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!)

On the Porch Swing

On the Porch Swing, Yahoo! Group
For those of you who choose to accept this mission, here is your ontheporchswing book challenge for 2010!

1. Read two books whose title contains the first letter of your first and last name - for example - for me - I would read "The History of Love" or "Land of a Thousand Hills. You can do it in either order HL or LH - or do two of the same - two HL's or two LH's.... (hope this makes sense!)

2. Read two books by an author whose first name begins with a "D" - this can be two male authors - two female authors - or one of each. Since I tend to read few books by male authors, I may try to do both of mine for this challenge as male authors.

3. Read one book by a female author whose first name is Mary

4. Read a biography about someone you have always been interested in - or just pick someone you have never heard much about

5. Read a book of short stories


Alphabet Challenge - this challenge consists of keeping track of each book you read that fits the letters of the alphabet. Can you make all 26!! It will be fun to see what titles you all come up with for the letters "Q", "X", and "Z"!

I've already joined an Alphabet Challenge so it shouldn't be a problem doing the bonus points. Especially since re-reads are not forbidden ;-)

This challenge will be a challenge! I have a list of books upstairs that I'll need to go through but right off hand? Nothing I have fits except the biography and the bonus points.

3. Simply Unforgettable by Mary Balogh - Jan 18

Thanks Juju, it's from the group so I can't take credit for it. I sure would like it to be my front yard!
