A Daring Book Challenge


Callista is hosting a challenge which uses books found in The Daring Book for Girls.

A Daring Book Challenge

June 15 2008 - June 15 2009

Options:
  1. Read one book from each category from June 15/08 to February 15/09 (6 books in 8 months)

  2. Read any 9 books from the list from June 15/08 to June 15/09 (9 books in 12 months)

  3. Read one whole series from this list starting June 15/08. If it contains up to 10 books, by June 15/09, if 20-30 books, by June 15/11 and for the Trixie Belden series and Nancy Drew series by June 15/12.

  4. PLUS----Want to work on reading them all? It's an ongoing challenge so take all the time you need. You can do this and still do one of the above.

A few more general guidelines for the challenge:
  • Crossovers with other challenges are allowed.

  • Audiobooks are allowed.

  • For the ongoing challenge, books you've read in the past count, you don't have to re-read them.

  • For the first 3 tracts, all books read must be read AFTER June 15/08. I'm choosing option 2--any 9 books in 12 months.

I'm doing option 2--choose any 9 books to read over 1 year
