A-Z Challenges A-Z Genres 2018
Duration: January 1, 2018 - December 31, 2018
This challenge is designed to help you broaden your horizons and read genres that you might not have tried before.
Goal: Read 26 genres, each one beginning with a different letter of the alphabet.
You may use main genres or sub-genres.
*For the harder letters - Q, U, X and Z - you may use any genre with that letter in it's name.*
You will also be allowed FIVE 'wildcards' for this challenge.
Wildcards can be used in place of any letter that you're struggling with, allowing you to substitute a genre beginning with any other letter. However, the substituted genre must be different from any other genre that you have already used, so that you still end up with 26 different genres. (See example.)
