wanderinglynn You can count this for winter games. Either as an impulse read (10pts) or tbr (15pts). 1w
wanderinglynn Ooh, I‘d count this one as holiday too because the rabbit is a Christmas present. 😉 1w
Readage @wanderinglynn Ok. Impulse read it is 😁 1w

The #ReadHarder challenge for 2020 is up already! https://bookriot.com/2019/12/03/2020-read-harder-challenge/

This is the only reading challenge I do. It really helps me diversify my reading and keeps me out of any ruts. This year's list looks like a good one, although there are definitely some categories where I'll be fishing for recommendations. (Anybody know any good books by refugees? Books about climate change?) #ReadHarder2020

effani Also, I have a feeling that the people complaining that the tasks get more specific every year weren't doing it in 2017, which included greatest hits like “A collection of poetry in translation on a theme other than love“ and “A book published by a micropress.“ I made it through that; nothing on this year's list can throw me. 1w

Anyone else pausing one of their current reads to pick it up in the new year because it fits one of the @bookriot #ReadHarder 2020 challenges? Is that cheating? https://bookriot.com/2019/12/03/2020-read-harder-challenge/

squirrelbrain I‘ve started putting post-it notes on next year‘s challenge books so I don‘t read one by mistake 😁 1w
marleed Haha - this morning I suspended a library hold until 2020 for the ReadAcrossaeurope. challenge. 1w

Anyone lining up their reading challenges for next year? I'm deciding to go for all or mostly new challenges this year (still undecided about #readharder). So I'm looking at #monthlymotifGXO, #monthlykeywordGXO (maybe challenging myself to fill both with one book!), maybe #MMDchallenge from Modern Mrs Darcy once it comes out, so long as it is announced in an accessible format, not as an image of text. Any other suggestions?

Chrissyreadit What are the two monthly challenges? 2w
Soubhiville I‘m thinking of sticking with just #MountTBR this year, but #popsugar prompts also look fun, so I may casually try that as well. 2w
Lauredhel @Soubhiville I'm waiting to see if pop sugar posts am accessible version 2w

Lauredhel @Chrissyreadit if you google the hashtags you should find them :) both by Girl XOXO 2w
Chrissyreadit Found! Thanks. 2w
SaturnDoo I haven't been very successful with this year's challenges 😥 Too many RL incidents put my reading time on hold. But I'm definitely going to try again this year. Working on getting my Bujo ready so I have no excuses to start on Jan 1 😄 2w
sprainedbrain I‘m a challenge freak... I‘m going to look up the two you mentioned. Currently, I‘m planning to do #ReadingWomen, #Booked2020 and #ReadingEurope2020. I‘m on the fence about Popsugar this year, and I haven‘t seen Read Harder prompts yet... are those posted? (edited) 2w
Lauredhel @sprainedbrain I did find a read harder 2020 prompt page in the google cache, but it's been removed from the site... Maybe posted early accidentally? 2w
sprainedbrain @Lauredhel That‘s what I found, too... glad to know it wasn‘t just my imagination. I was confused! 2w
Lauredhel @sprainedbrain having said that I might not do Read Harder again - but #booked2020 looks good, I haven't done that before! 2w
Lauredhel @sprainedbrain is five challenges too many? WE SHALL FIND OUT 2w
sprainedbrain @Lauredhel I am doing five this year and I think I‘m going to finish them all! Read Harder just seems to be getting... ummm.. harder every year. Lol. I like to use books on my tbr or library books as often as I can for challenges and find myself having to buy special or obscure books for Read Harder. So it‘s not one of my five this year. 🤪 I‘m sure I will at least look this year. This will be my third year of #Booked. I like that one! 2w
Lauredhel @sprainedbrain i hear you on Read Harder - this year I am looking for prompts with a little more latitude (edited) 2w
