Book Blogger Hop December 23rd - December 29th: Proposition 184 Implemented California's "Three Strikes" Law, Which Was (and Remains) a Terrible Idea

Jen at Crazy for Books restarted her weekly Book Blogger Hop to help book bloggers connect with one another, but then couldn't continue, so she handed the hosting responsibilities off to Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer. The only requirements to participate in the Hop are to write and link a post answering the weekly question and then visit other blogs that are also participating to see if you like their blog and would like to follow them.

This week Billy asks: Do you participate in reading challenges that have you reading for 24 hours, challenges that have a yearly goal, challenges that have you reading certain genres, or do you not participate in challenges?

I participate in a number of challenges every year, thus far they have all been genre related and yearly goal challenges. I have not done any twenty-four hour reading challenges or anything of a similar nature. There are lists of all the challenges that I have participated in (and links to both the challenges themselves and my progress on them) on the sidebar to the right. The exact challenges have changed over the years, mostly because some challenges have gone out of existence, but when that happens, I try to find a similar challenge as a replacement.

  1. I couldn't do a 24 hr challenge and the only yearly one I do is GoodReads. Have a great week!

    1. @Shandy Jo: My secret to challenges is that I generally only join the ones that line up with the reading I was planning to do for the year anyway.

  2. That is great you participate in the genre-related challenges. I actually did that for the first time this year. Not stressful at all since I normally read woman's fiction more than any other genre. That challenge was easy and fun.

    I am only doing the Goodreads Challenge this year, though.

    Happy Hopping!!

    1. @Elizabeth: One thing that I have found difficult is finding a good well-run general fantasy or science fiction challenge. There are lots of good subgenre-specific challenges, but I have been very unimpressed with the more general genre fiction ones.
