  1. These look like lots of fun, but since I don't read all that many books, I'll stick to the New Releases Challenge and the Historical Fiction Challenge - for those all I do is try to read new releases and historical fiction during the year, which I already do! Good luck with your reading challenges.

    1. @Davida Chazan: I'm way behind on all my reading challenges this year. I'm hoping to catch up over the next couple of months.
