I'm doing the Picture Books Challenge again next year.  I'm trying to get 25 to complete this year's challenge and will try for the same next year.  The challenge is now hosted at Bea's Book Nook.

2016, I Love Picture Books Reading Challenge, Bea's Book Nook, picture books

For all of you of all ages who love picture books but find they don't qualify for your other challenges, or just want an excuse to read them. . .here's a challenge just for you!

Formerly hosted by 
Book Dragon's Lair. She's cutting back her challenge hosting for 2016 and passed the baton to me.


  • Challenge runs from January 1, 2016 to December 31, 2016. Sign up is now through December 1, 2016.
  • Read picture books.
  • Pick a number and go for it. Twelve too easy? Go for 20. Piece of cake? Go for 40.
  • Books you own and library check outs count. So do ebooks and re-reads.
  • Please post about the challenge and sign up with a direct link.
  • A blog is not necessary, just link to where you talk about the challenge or a dedicated public shelf at goodreads or LibraryThing.
  • Write a review - 2 sentences or an essay, whatever works for you, but there is a minimum of 2 sentences for your review. Not sure what to write? How about something like, "The characters were a delight but the artwork was dreary. It was disappointing." I'll post a link up post each month for those who want to share. Reviews are not necessary but would be nice so we know which ones to read ourselves. :)
