Book Challenges for 2008 -- Part I

My friend Kristi introduced me to book challenges.   I will participate in these two for 2008.

"In their shoes" Reading Challenge. Read memoirs, biographies or autobiographies.   You choose the number to read.   I plan to read eight.  I'm not sure yet which ones.

Triple 8 Challenge   Read eight books in eight categories of your choosing in 2008.   You may have eight overlaps, so a minimum of 56 books.

Here are my thoughts on categories so far:

  • Books by TARAns
  • Memoirs, Biographies, and Autobiographies (In Their Shoes!)
  • Award Winners (eight different awards)
  • Fantasy/Science Fiction (including Romantic Fantasy)
  • Religion/Philosophy/Christian Living
  • Around the World
  • Thrillers (Including Romantic Suspense)
  • Written before 1940

    I'll let you know when I figure out the books.   Please let me know if you are doing these or any other reading challenges.

    hi, I'm from the 888 blog. If you put your email in a comment at the blog, you can be added as an author on the blog and post to the blog. We'd love to have you join us. Let me know if you don't want your addy posted, and it can be deleted

    I'm doing both of these, plus more! I had a lot of fun doing challenges this year, great to have you aboard.
