Bart's Bookshelf is hosting the 2011 TwentyEleven Challenge. The goal is to read a total of 20 books from 11 different categories. You must read a minimmum of one book and a maximum of two books per category, meaning you can choose two categories to read only one book. Click here to sign up!
And the categories for TwentyEleven are:
I read a pretty good mix, so I'm reading one of each.
This one focuses on sub-genres, read a lot of chick-lit, then try a paranormal romance! Fantasy? Why not give some Steampunk a go, like a bit of Space-Opera in your Sci-Fi then pick up a military Sci-fi book. Like your Contemporary Literature, give a Young Adult Contemporary a chance. Well hopefully you get the idea!
* Bad Bloggers: Is hosted by Chris of Stuff as Dreams are Made on.
Tackle that overflowing T.B.R. pile! Books for this category must be already residents of your bookshelves as of 1/12/10.
Read books that are translated from a language that is not your own.
Need just one more book to compete that duology/trilogy/series then read it for this one! (Obviously as this is for that final book you need to complete it, then you can’t read two books from the same series! And it clearly can’t be your first or penultimate read!)
Because not everyone reads a series in order, this is for the last book you need to read, not necessarily the last book in the series…
Way Back When.
Read books that were published before you were born for this one, whether that be the day before or 100 years prior!
Got a novella you want to read? Then this one is the one for you! Any books between 90-150 pages count.
