Phew, there’s a lot of reading challenges for 2017 out there this year. Feeling inspired by challenges like Book Riot’s 2017 Read Harder Challenge and POPSUGAR’s 2017 Reading Challenge, I took a crack at coming up with a reading challenge especially for #AmReaders based on some of the fantastic articles that I’m completely not biased toward submitted this past year by fellow #AmReading writers. The links to past articles are included (read: shamelessly plugged) so you can get a good idea of books you can read to fulfill each entry.
The rules: since there are only 25 entries (that’s just over two books a month), you must read one book per each entry. So, even if a book checks off two or more categories, you can only choose one entry to check off. Other than that, there are no rules! Here’s what you need to read by the end of 2017 to finish the reading challenge:
1. A Book Written From The Perspective Of An Animal.
2. A Book Written From The Perspective Of A Child.
3. A Short Story.
4. A Non-Fiction Book.
5. A Book Written For NaNoWriMo.
6. A Collection Of Poetry Written By An African American Poet.
7. A Book That You Started But Never Finished.
8. A Book That Was Banned In Any Country.
9. A Book That Was Self-Published.
