Is anyone interested in having a 2013 reading challenge similar to what we have had the last two years?

Any suggestions for different topics or formats?

Anyone else want to set it up?

I've never been a part of a reading challenge before and would like to join in if one gets started :)

I would love to participate again. It caused me to read books I had that I might not have read otherwise. Thanks.

Here is what we set up for the Historical Fiction challenge.  Feel free to steal and modify any of the ideas as appropriate.

2013 Historical Fiction Challenge - A House of Cards

After a couple of years of complicated challenges, we went back to something simple, and one kinda silly one that pretty much anybody can do.  The category where we read five books that are somehow connected has been a favorite.  People come up with very creative ways to connect the five books.  First book in a series, books with single word titles, authors with three words in their name, set in one country, etc.   It's always fun to see how they are connected.

That sounds like a great idea Christa!  I've been glancing over the 2013 Mystery Challenge and they have a couple I think could work with us.  I'll go check out the rest of the challenge.

I would be interested in doing it for 2013.  I wanted to do it for 2012, but haven't kept up with it.  :(  But I would like to have a simplistic one....or one that has many to choose from where only a certain number are required to complete.  (I think 2012 was like that...)

Here is what I have come up with.  Check it out and see what you think.
