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!)

interesting post found at ....

Cheeky Reads...... What do you think of book reading challenges?

One of her thoughts was a "Harlequin Challenge - Try out 1 book from every category line for 2011. This would not only challenge you to try various different sub-genres of romance, but for many it would be a challenge to give Harlequins a try."

My first thought was that Harlequin publishes so many books a month and that if you included Mira, Luna, and the other imprints with all the Harlequin/Silhoutte lines you have 30+ books to read. Then I wondered if it really was that many.

Well, I was wrong. There are 29. As for categories? There are almost as many between fiction and non-fiction.

I wonder how many books I own that are on my TBR list, that would fit into those 29 slots?

Now, I have to wonder just what she meant by category line? Maybe there are only 19 books to find ;)
