52 Books in 52 Weeks

This is another favourite challenge - the 52 Books in 52 Weeks hosted by Liz Mannegren at MommyMannegren

Here are the guidelines
The goals for this challenge are simple: stretch yourself out of your regular reading habits, read more, and have fun with it! While there are no “rules” to this challenge, here are a few helpful notes to keep in mind as you get started:
1. Don’t stress about whether or not you get through all 52 categories. The goal is simply to read more. (Whatever that looks like FOR YOU.) Set a goal for yourself and see if you can reach it.
2. Venture out of your usual section of the library/bookstore. As tempting as it may be to slot your regular reading into every category, use this as an opportunity to branch out a little too. These categories are a great way to uncover new authors and genres that you might not otherwise read.
3. Interpret the categories in whatever way you like. Feel free to use the fullness of your creativity and imagination as you pick books for each category. If you think a book fits a certain category, then it does!
4. Read books you like! This isn’t meant to be a stressful challenge. Due to our natural reading preferences some of the categories will be more difficult to complete than others — but just have fun with it! Do a little research and find books that not only fit that category but that you’ll also enjoy reading.
5. Join the Facebook Group. The Facebook group is the perfect place to meet fellow readers and discuss the books we’re reading. We help each other out with ideas for different categories, share reviews, and talk about all things books! (Plus, it’ll help you out with this year’s category “A book suggested by someone else in the challenge.”)
