Current Book Challenges Going On Our GoodReads Group

1. Read Your Author Challenge - Okay here is the first special challenge and will be a quarterly time limit. You can post on your own meaning no set date to start but once you post a start date you have to end it in three months from when you start.

This challenge is Read Your Author , spell out your favorite author, find titles or you can use any author's first or last name.

If you want to make it harder when you spell out the name - you must only use titles of your fave author.

Good Luck and Have fun!

2. Expand Your Genre Challenge- Each person that chooses to participate submits one title and everyone that submits a title agrees to read all submitted books. So for example if there are 15 entries then you have to read all 15 books.This gives us all a chance to read out of our comfort zones and try something new. Then we can voice our opinion whether we like the books or not .

Time Frame November 15th,2010-November 15th, 2011

3. Out of Your Comfort Zone ChallengeYou if you choose to participate is You must choose One book from three genres that either you haven't ever read before or you may have tried just once.

This is your opportunity to try something new and maybe you can become a fan of a new genre. If you are stuck on what genre to try you can do sub genres as well
