Hello ladies and gents,

As it's almost October, I started to think about a new reading challenge, despite the fact that I am hopelessly failing at this year's challenge (...and we'll ignore the fact that I created it....blush)

Does anyone want to take a shot at creating 2015's challenge?  I don't mind doing it, but if someone wants to step in, please do!

And please vent here on what you do/don't like about the challenges...specific categories, challenge difficulty, categories you'd like to try...etc

I LOVE having a reading challenge ... it's fun to build my list, see what other people are reading and it gives a bit of focus to my year's reading choices. I thought this year's challenge was GREAT and I would be delighted for Carolyn R. to host it again if she is willing!

Them's my thoughts.

2015???? Say it ain't so.

Sure, I'll vote for Carolyn. I don't plan to do the challenge, but I'm happy to kibitz from the sidelines!

After years of participation, I totally bombed for 2014.  I'm ready to start again next year, and anyone who wants to lead it has my gratitude!

I have to get going. If I concentrate really, really hard on it, I might get close to finishing mine for 2014. Close. Like...race to the finish close!

I really liked what you did for this year, Carolyn, and if you want to have another go at it, I'll support you totally!

Love the challenges - just really lagging behind this year.  My vote is to keep Carolyn.  Thanks for being willing, Carolyn!

Hi Steve,

The Historical Fiction Challenge is a year long reading challenge.  There are a wide variety of themes and categories, and if you look on under the Historical Fiction Table of Contents, you'll see the current and past challenges.
