After posting my reading challenges this morning, I spent much of the day visiting other bloggers’ challenge posts. That’s a great way to find more tempting challenges. Two of them fit right into my British Isles Friday meme, so I had to sign up for them! I’ve still got a couple of months of posts about our trip to England, but after that I’ll be looking for books to review for British Isles Friday. I should get lots of ideas from the participants of these two challenges.
This is a county-by-county challenge. I’ll sign up for Level One — to read 1 to 3 books and aim to read books set in 3 different English counties. That will be a bit of a challenge for me. I read a lot of books set in England in 2014 and almost all were in London.
The Reading England challenge is hosted by Behold the Stars. There’s a helpful list of classics listed by county at the sign up post as well.
British Books Challenge
The British Books Challenge is to read 12 books by British authors in 2015. There are prizes! Although, only some are available to international bloggers — which, in this case, is defined by those of us outside of the UK.
Twelve seems like a lot of books but I read way more British books than that in 2014 and there are quite a few books that I wanted to read and never got to. So, I’m hoping that I can catch up on some of those.
