Humor Reading Challenge 2020

I will once again be hosting this one.

Choose a level from below.  You may go up a level, but not down.
Cartoonist: 1-5 books
Humor Columnist: 6-10 books 
Comedy Writer:  11-15 books
Stand Up Comedian: More than 15 books 

Guidelines for the Challenge:
  • Challenge runs from January 1 to December 31, 2020. Books must be started on or after January 1 to count. Re-reads are allowed as long as they are read during the specified time frame.
  • Books may cross over to other challenges in which you are participating.
  • Any book (fiction, nonfiction, memoirs, graphic novels, poetry collections, plays, picture books) labeled as humor counts. As such, all book formats (paper, audio, electronic) may be read.
  • You do not need a blog to sign up. You may keep tract of your progress on Goodreads, Amazon or other similar sites with a shelf dedicated to this challenge. Or sign up on Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, etc. 
  • There will be no checkins, nor do you need to post reviews.

NOTE: I am removing linkys for this challenge, and closing signups for the remainder of 2020. Challenge signups for 2021 will be coming soon.


  1. This is not a genre I often read. I wonder why not? With the exception of Bill Watterson's excellent Calvin and Hobbes cartoons...

  2. Want to learn how to be fun in 2020 - Is there a GR group for extra accountability?

  3. I'm already psyched! I love humorous books and I just don't read enough of them. So at least in 2020 I'll read 12 (yeah, my reading challenges are 1x/month.)
