@Riveted_Reader_Melissa and her #Nonfiction2022 is here!

“Can anyone guess the inspirations for this year‘s choices?
.
If these make you think of the closing of The Breakfast Club or the song B!tch by Meredith Brooks you are right. People/books can be many different things to different people depending on your POV & preconceived ideas OR many things all wrapped up in one. So have a blast fillings these categories any way you want.“

Turning Forty | Steve Gismondi

Celebrate @Librarybelle 40th year!

“I wanted to do something fun and decided to commemorate the year by reading a book published in each year from 1982-2022. I‘m calling it #19822022 . I‘ve wanted to do similar challenges that encompass 100 years worth of books, but this will be a perfect smaller challenge that I can do along with other challenges.

Feel free to join me if you would like! I don‘t have a signup form, so this is very low key.“

We're with @Patchshank!

“Ghost stories used to be a Christmas Eve tradition. That really needs to make a comeback. Who's with me? 🎄👻

But it's a readathon for horror, thriller, murder mystery and so on. Set your own goals even if that goal is to not have a goal. Tag me in the review if you feel like it.“

Do you have a series or two (or 5) you need to finish or a series you what to start? This is the challenge for you. It's ow key so you can choose to read a little or a lot. There is no set schedule just read what you want, when you want. Every time you read a book in a series and post a review use the hashtag #SeriesRead2022 and tag @TheSpineView. You will be entered into a drawing for a bookish prize at the end of the year. #readingchallenges

aperfectmjk @TheSpineView I need to do this for sure. I am TERRIBLE when it comes to reading series. I just can't seem to make the commitment. I always want to move to something else. I guess I just feel like I'm missing out on so much. I'm definitely not a person who can read books in a series consecutively. I need a pause in there. Lol 4d
