Reading Outside the Box Challenge

And this one now too.  Again the categories in this one are similar to and overlap with those of the two previously mentioned challenges.  To sign up for this one, click here.

Please feel free to use the chart on your posts. Just link back here!
Participating is pretty easy.
  1. You have all of 2014 to read a book for each square.
  2. A book can only count for 1 square. There will be 25 books for this challenge.
  3. The books read for this project can come from other projects you’re participating in: school, review books, other challenge or events, books for fun.
  4. If you blog, keep a post/page for the challenge. Update the post/page when you read a book for the challenge with a link to your thoughts/review of the book. Make sure to state which square the book counts for!
  5. If you feel like it, write check in posts every few months. Update us on how you feel about the ‘new’ books you’re reading.
  6. I’ll keep a page here for people to add review links to. It would be nice to see how others are feeling about the challenge.
That’s it! Hopefully by the end of the year we will be more adventurous in our reading.
