Creativity Reading Challenge 2019

This challenge was started two years by Julie Cornewell at her blog. I then asked to take over as host of this challenge for 2018, and will bring it back once again for 2019.

This challenge is about reading books on creativity, art, crafts, writing, film making, photography, cosmetology, DIY, cooking, music and any other topic that helps you live a more creative life. 

Here are some links to get started:

Best Books on Creative Life
Fiction Books Involving Art
Books on Creativity
Best Books on the Writing Life
Books with Main Characters Who Are Artists

You are by no means limited to what is suggested in the links above. Any books you find that fit the challenge description may be read toward the challenge.

Challenge Guidelines

  • Begins January 1, 2019 and ends Dec 31, 2019. 
  • I won't be creating different levels. Read as little or as many books as you want.
  • Books may be nonfiction, memoir, how to, self help, coffee table books, instructional, picture books, and even fictional if they are about people who are creative.
  • You may include books of any format including traditional books, ebooks or audiobooks
  • You may reread books. 
  • Books may count towards other reading challenges in which you are participating
NOTE 10/10: Closing signups for 2019. Challenge to return in 2020.

Anything which gets people reading is a good thing.

I plan on focusing next year on books about spinning fiber into yarn and colored pencil drawing. Laura Morelli's Venetian Artisan series entry for 2019 will be another book that I will be reading.

This is a great challenge. I have been in a rut and I need to stretch my creativity so it's a challenge just to figure out what creative area I want to do.
