Oh dear, I didn’t get any of my challenges in 2015 and I thougt it would be better if I don’t participate in these bookish events, but then I took a look at twitter, I visited some blogs here and there… And I can’t help myself!
Read my own damn books
With such a title, Andi has made us take charge once and for all of our to-be-read piles of books!
In my case, I plucked up courage and I typed a list (using my Underwood!) with almost all the books I have in my shelves to read. They were 205 books.
I also typed a page with the ebooks I need to read as well (mainly because I purchased them time ago or because I got them for review). A total of 222 books, guys – this is going to be hard.
Since this is a “choose your own adventure” challenge, my rules are these:
- The goal is to read 20-30 books from the list.
- I can only buy/request/borrow from the library once I’ve read 5 books from the list. Then I’ll read another 5 and so on.
- The rule above doesn’t count for book-club books 😛 (you know, because I have to read them for the book club!).
- I’ll chose the books either by asking my boyfriend to pick a number from 1 to 222 or by using random.org.
- I’ll keep track of my progress on twitter using the hashtag #ReadMyOwnDamnBooks.
Wish me luck, my friends; I’ll need it!
Travel the World in books
This challenge is organized by Tanya, and I love it because there are joint readings, readathons, twitter chats, and many activities thanks to which I’ve met a lot of blogger friends.
This year I want to be part of the fun again 😀
My goal is to read and review two books set in every one of these “continents”: Africa, North and South America, Asia, Australia, Antarctica and Europe (but not in Spain).
A total of 14 books. Preferably from the list of the challenge above 😉
Keep calm and read in English
This is the challenge I used to organize in my Spanish blog but, due to my current situation, I don’t have the time to do it again, so a blogger friend took charge of the challenge – I’m so happy it will continue one more year!
Of course, I’m participating: I want to read and review 20 books in English.
The money-box challenge
This challenge began as a meme on facebook, and some bloggers started to do it: you have to put one coin in a jar (is piggy bank really the word for this? I translated it on google!) for every book you read during the year and, at the end of the year, you use that money to buy more books.
Isn’t that an awesome idea???
So I’m participating this year, with my own rules:
- € 1 for every book, in general.
- € 2 for books in Spanish with more than 800 pages.
- € 2 for books in English with more than 500 pages. You know, BECAUSE.
I already have my first Euro in the piggy thing (well, it’s a box in my case), so this is starting very well
I’m ready to read them all!!
