~*~Challenge yourself to Read~*~
I have recently become addicted to challenges....
Hello my name is Chelsea and I am a Reading Challenge Addict...
What does this mean?
No I don't need meds, and I don't think is is quite serious enough for a padded room, yet. ;)
A Reading Challenge is a challenge set up by someone (or yourself) where you pick a book(s) to fit a certain criteria then challenge yourself to read them.
A name challenge
E~ (haven't found one yet)
So the idea is that you pick a book where the title starts with each letter of your name. You can also do a nickname so I could do CHELS instead.
Then you give yourself a time limit to read the books by. This particular one is my January 2013 Challenge.
There are other challenges where another person picks a book for you making it a sort of surprise. Like say I give you the link to my TBR shelf on Goodreads, then you pick a book for me and give me a time limit to read...so lets say 2 weeks or a month if you are a slower reader.
Then there are year-long challenges, and six month challenges, and even weekly challenges. Really you could do anything your heart desires ;) I mainly started this because I love picking up a book I haven't even thought to read then loving every minute of it, also it helps to find books, authors, and genres I wouldn't have read otherwise. Perfect example is The 500 by Mathew Quirk. I wouldn't have read it had it not been for a reading challenge where the prompt was an Action book.
I have started my own group on Goodreads, for Challenges...yes I know I'm really an addict. ;)
