Reading Challenges help you fall and stay in love with reading. And when your favorite blogging community comes up with one, you ought to participate in it.
Write Tribe has announced its first reading challenge – the Write Tribe Reading Challenge 2019. In order to complete the challenge, you need to read 24 books in an year. There are 24 prompts of which you can choose any 12 or all. I hope and intend to do all 24. Greedy much? I don’t think so. I foresee a lot of reading happening in 2019 and fingers crossed, I’m hoping to nail this one.
Based on the number of books you read, you will be placed in one of the reading levels – 24 books (Book Lover), 36 books (Book Worm), 48 books (Book Geek) and 60 books and above (Book Nerd). As you know, my target is 52 books, but fingers crossed! The challenge also asks you to post one book review a month on the blog/Amazon/Goodreads and to link it up on the Monthly Linkup Post at Write Tribe. There is also a Write Tribe Reading Challenge group on Goodreads where the Write Tribers discuss on their book choices for the prompts. What are you waiting for? Sign up now.
I have created a page here, on my blog, with my book choices, for all the Reading Challenges of 2019 which I shall be participating in. This page will account for my progress and links of book reviews as and when I post them.
For now, here’s what I am planning to read for the Write Tribe Challenge, of course, this is a loose TBR.
