It's been an interesting year so far. I've lost both my Moms. My mother died in January after a long decline. Soon after, my Mother-in-Law went in for bypass surgery. While her heart healed, other issues zapped her strength and she died April 22.

I may have challenge update posts but I don't know when I'll be posting regularly or when I'll get to visit everyone who is working on the challenges I'm hosting.

RC: Reading Outside the Box

Reading Outside the Box
Reading Challenge

hosted at Musings of a Book Lover
for more information and to sign up, click here

Basic Requirement: Read a book for each requirement. There are several levels. There are a couple of categories I'm not sure about and I'm sure I could read "Outside in" if reviews are required.
I'm going for . . . I'm a little Scared . . . and hope to read 3 - 4 books.

  1. Classics are the new black – read a classic novel
  2. It’s a serial thing – you’ve read the first in a series (or even three of them), it’s time to read another!
  3. Lost in translation – time to read a book that was first written in another language and then translated.
  4. It’s about time! – read a book that has been sitting on your shelf for at least two years! (and haven’t read it yet!)
  5. By the numbers – read a book with a Number in the title
  6. Weird Science! – read a book that features some form of science – and maybe discover an untapped passion.
  7. I just love a good Duet – a book written by more than one author.
  8. New Guy in Town – read a Debut book written by a new author.
  9. Almost Human – read a book from the perspective of an animal – or an alien – or a robot! (at least feature an ‘almost human’)
  10. Chunkster-time! – read a book that is longer 500 pages. (Time to dust off War and Peace)
  11. Random Rescue – go to a used book store and RANDOMLY pick a book! (could even be from a grab-bag)
  12. Under-Aged Writer – read a book by an author who is not yet 21.
  13. Time for exercise – read a book that is set in or around a sport or exercise activity (like yoga or baseball). This can be fiction or nonfiction!
  14. Make-Believe - This category is just for YOU! (and anyone who wants to try it!) Here is your chance to let others know what would get you outside of your Comfort Zone!

#10 - Winter's Tale by Mark Helprin (743!)
#12 - Eragon by Christopher Paolini

I hope that you aren't a little scared, once you read books outside of the norm for you! Thanks for joining my Challenge!
