The TwentyTen Reading Challenge

Tuesday, January 19, 2010

I've decided to add just one more challenge to the list...this sounds like too much fun to not join. 

Goal: Read a total of 20 books, over ten categories, in 2010.
For a complete listing of the rules, head on over to the TwentyTen Reading Challenge page.

The Categories:
1. Young Adult
Any book classified as young adult or featuring a teenage protagonist counts for this category.

2. T.B.R. **
Intended to help reduce the old T.B.R. pile. Books for this category must be already residents of your bookshelves as of 1/11/09.   

3. Shiny & New
Bought a book NEW during 2010 from a bookstore, online, or a supermarket? Then it counts for this category. Second-hand books do not count for this one.                               
4. Bad Blogger’s ***
Books in this category, should be ones you’ve picked up purely on the recommendation of another blogger count for this category (any reviews you post should also link to the post that convinced you give the book ago).
*** Bad Bloggers: Is hosted by Chris of Stuff as Dreams are Made on.

5. Charity
Support your local independent bookstores with this category, by picking up books from one of their shops.
Someone Knows My Name by Lawrence Hill 
A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini

6. New in 2010
This category is for those books newly published in 2010 (whether it be the first time it is has been released, or you had to wait for it to be published in your country, it counts for this one!)

7. Older Than You
Read two books that were published before you were born, whether that be the day before or 100 years prior!

8. Win! Win!
Have a couple of books you need to read for another challenge? Then this is the category to use, as long that is, you don’t break the rules of the other challenge by doing so!                    
The Mist by Stephen King

9. Who Are You Again?
This one isn’t just for authors you’ve never read before, this is for those authors you have never even heard of before!       
The Infidelity Pact by Carry Karasyov

10. Up to You!
The requirements for this category are up to you!  I will go with reading 2 cookbooks.
