I just about jumped for joy seeing a “short book” challenge instead of all the ones I see for larger books (although I do love my Chunksters!) and I knew immediately that I would be doing this one. I usually have several books that I’m reading at any given time and at least one of them is going to be a “quick fix” type of book. Something that I can pick up for just a few minutes while waiting in line at the grocery store, for example, and not feel like I’m losing the depth of the story because I didn’t devote a large block of time to reading just that one book. Obviously I’m going for the Gorilla Glue level! :-D
I find that many times when a reading challenge has to do with a book’s size it usually about reading bigger books. Sometimes, because I’m in between books, life is getting out of hand, or things are just getting in the way, there’s just not enough time to read a big book. Who says bigger is better anyway? Sometimes things break and all you need is a little tape and it’ll hold. So this is the “Quick fix Challenge” whether it’s a love for smaller books, or just trying to squeeze in a quick read, or maybe times running out and you need to read in some more books quickly. This is a challenge about reading books with less than 300 pages.
- The challenge runs from January 1, 2013 to December 31, 2013.
- Sign ups will be open until mid December.
- You don’t have to be a blogger to participate. However, leave a comment and tell me what level you’re aiming for.
- For bloggers, post up a challenge sign up post saying what level you’ve signed up for. Be sure to sign-up with your sign-up post in the linky.
- You don’t have to review the books you read however if you do, you will be able to post your links to your reviews here. (I’ll have a post up for reviews up in January.)
- Books have to have less than 300 pages to count.
- Books such as MG/YA, graphic novels/manga, audio, rereads, can count toward your goal.
- *Updated* Anthologies and short stories count as well. (I can’t believe I forgot about these.)
- Feel free to crossover the books you read for this challenge with other challenges.
(If you have any questions feel free to ask, I feel like I might be missing something here, but I could be wrong.)
Now the Levels/It will hold with:
String: 5 books
Paperclips: 10 books
Duck tape: 15 books
Gorilla glue: 20+ books
This is my first challenge so I’ll see how this goes. I’ll try and have a giveaway at the end of the year for all of those who have finished the challenge!
