This thread is for the 2015 Christian Reading Challenge beginning January 1, 2015, and is for your LISTS ONLY

Anyone can join in at any time (after Jan 1 of course)

You can fill in your lists before the challenge starts, or you can fill it in as you go along.  And, of course, you can change your lists up as time goes along too.  You are not locked into your choices if you make them now.

You are welcome to add your own categories to your list or if you would like you can send me a PM and I will see about adding them to the main list.

All of the categories pertain to Christian books only, whether they are fiction or non-fiction.

 

Have Fun!

With this challenge you count series completed, not books read. It doesn't matter how many books are in the series or if you've read most of them and only have one or two left to read. The object of this challenge is to finish the series.
Levels:
• Curious – Finish 2 series
• Fascinated – Finish 3 series
• Addicted – Finish 5 series
• Obsessed – Finish 10 series

Name Challenge:

It's very easy, take your name and match the title of the books you read to correspond with each letter in your name. And so there will be 3 levels.
Level 1- On a first name basis- (First name only)
Level 2- What your mom yells when you are in trouble (First and middle name(s)
Level 3- The whole enchilada- First, middle and last name.

For example-

C

Bonus Categories:

This is an opportunity for you to finish all of those series that have been sitting on your book shelf looking at you. I don't know about you but I have quite a few. With this challenge you count series completed, not books read. It doesn't matter how many books are in the series or if you've read most of them and only have one or two left to read. The object of this challenge is to finish the series.
Levels:
• Curious – Finish 2 series
• Fascinated – Finish 3 series
• Addicted – Finish 5 series
• Obsessed – Finish 10 series

Name Challenge:

It's very easy, take your name and match the title of the books you read to correspond with each letter in your name. And so there will be 3 levels.
Level 1- On a first name basis- (First name only)
Level 2- What your mom yells when you are in trouble (First and middle name(s)
Level 3- The whole enchilada- First, middle and last name.
