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
2014

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.

Categories
  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!

possibilities:
#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!
