January 2013 Reading Challenges & Link Up List

20110212_7I love a challenge every now and then.  Don’t you?!  I also love to mix a challenge with my hobbies.  Reading challenges are a great way for me to be able to do that.  I’ve been searching for a good challenge to do, but didn’t really find any ones that I was really excited about.  I thought it would be more fun to make up my own and maybe have some people join me.

The rules are very simple.  You can read any book to fill the list.  It doesn’t matter what genre or how it is printed.  It doesn’t matter if you’ve read it before, as long as you DO read it again.  Books read for the January challenges must be started in January, not something that you were previously reading.  You can read a book that falls into more than one category and get it counted for that.  You may also use books that you are using for different challenges.

Don’t feel pressured to do them all!  Choose what you feel is right for you.  What sounds like fun?  What do you think you can accomplish?  Are you challenging yourself?

After you’ve checked out the list, you can link up with us and share what you will be reading.  At the end of the month, I will post a post for us to share our progress.

So what are you waiting for?  Get those lists ready and link up with me!  Don’t leave me doing this journey alone!

  • Celebrate President’s Day – Read any book that has anything to do with a President of the US.  It can be about a president, a president’s name can be used in the title or the same as the author’s name or the setting of the book in Washington DC.
  • Birthday Book – Find an author that was born in January and read a book written by that them.  Here are a couple links to help you out: http://www.scholastic.com/teachers/article/january-author-birthdays        http://lookingglassreview.com/books/authors-illustrators/birthdays
  • Who’s Got the Blues? – Find a book with the word BLUE in the title.
  • Bringing in the New Year – Read any book that talks about New Years, making resolutions or has the word NEW in the title.
  • Snowy Days – Snow or anything to do with snow on the front cover.  Ex. snowman, skis, snowflake, etc.

Please leave your link to your reading list in the comment section so I can follow your blog and reading journey!
