Epistolary Reading Challenge 2023

 Another I'm bringing back next year.



The challenge will be to read books written in the form of letters, diaries, blogs, e-mails and such, either completely or partially written this way. 


Guidelines:
  • Challenge will run from January 1 to December 31, 2023.  Books must be started on or after January 1 to count.  Re-reads will be allowed as long as they are read during the specified time period.
  • Books may cross over to other challenges in which you are participating.  
  • Fiction (all genres and subgenres) and nonfiction that fit the challenge description may be read.
  • All book formats are allowed (paper, audio, electronic, graphic novels/manga, picture books). 
  • No levels.  I will let you choose how many books to 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 Youtube, Facebook, or Twitter.
  • You do not need to post reviews, nor will there be any check-ins.
  • Sign up below in the comments. I will not be using linkys this year.

I love epistolaries (so much that they got a special section of my "top books" list for later this month). I'm absolutely in :)

I'd love to participate in this :-) I realised this year that the thing a lot of my favourite books have in common is that they are written in letter and/or diary form. I also want to find more quirky books written through email, social media, texts, etc.

I love epistolary but rarely stumble on them. I'm signing up for two books but may go higher. Thanks for hosting!
