So I spectacularly failed most of my reading challenges in 2013, except for the Classics Challenge, mainly because I didn't feel lke writing reviews for all the books I read. Which doesn't stop me from signing up for challenges in 2013.
The first is the Graphic Novels Challenge:
runs from Jan.1 - Dec. 31, 2013
Level 1: read and review 12 books during the year (you could spread them out and read one a month or have a blast and read all 12 in a row!)
Level 2: read and review 24 books during the year (same as above only you would read two a month for the slow rate)
Basic: no change from last year. just read any book generally considered a graphic novel, manga, or collection of comics, write a review and link to your post.
Advanced: For advanced play we are going to play categories. Players will pick 1 book from each of the 12 categories below. If you are playing at Level 2 you could double up, choosing two from each category, or use the remainder as free picks. You only have to read one book from each of the 12 categories.
3. classic adaptation (a classic work adapted into the graphic format)
6. translated from a foreign language
7. a single-issue comic book
9. crime or mystery
10. fairytale or mythology (true to the original or fractured, such as Fables series)
11. children's book (specifically written for children)
12. anthology (a collection of short stories by different authors/artists)
12 books sounds like a good goal here.
and the second is the Library Books Reading Challenge:
choose a level - you may move up as needed, just not down.
check books out of the library
books may overlap with other challenges
any format allowed (print, ebook, audio)
reviews are not necessary but a list of books read is.
a blog is not necessary, just comment that you want to join in
board book - 3
picture book - 6
early reader - 9
chapter book - 12
middle grades - 18
Young adult - 24
adult - 36
just insert IV - 50
Since it doesn't require reviews, I go for the highest level...but I will try and write as many reviews as possible.
