I found another challenge to try for 2014. Listed below are the rules.
 Click here to sign up....


In it’s third year, the aim of The Eclectic Reader 2014 Challenge is to push you outside your comfort zone by reading up to 12 books during the year from 12 different categories.

Join in:

  • The challenge will run from January 1st to December 31st 2014. Participants may join at any time up until December 1st 2014
  •  Create a blog post committing to  your participation in this challenge.
*  If you don’t have a blog you are still welcome to sign up. You can create a shelf for the challenge at Goodreads or LibraryThing or a similar site Just include your name and a link to your shelf.
  • Post your name, blog name, and the direct link to your challenge post in the Linky using the link below

Select, read and review a book from each genre listed below during the year for a total of 12 books. A book may be in print, electronic or audio format.

*  You can choose your books as you go or create a list in advance. 
You may combine this challenge with others if you wish.
*  Where a book is identified by more than one genre eg historical romance, it may only 
count for either the historical fiction or romantic fiction genres – not both.
