To Explore and Challenge and Read and Learn


I love reading and I just found an interesting and fun way to read different books. This is a list I found by Megan.C.Stroup. It’s a challenge. I like the rules of the game and I’m going to try to complete as many as possible. I’ll keep posting my progress. If anyone has any reading suggestions please let me know in the comments section below.

Here are the rules. Italicized text are my comments:

  1. Read a book chosen for the U.S. 2013 World Book Night. (I’ve changed it to 2013.)
  2. Read a book you were supposed to read in school, but either bailed on or cliff-noted. (If you were super studious and never did this, then read a book most people were assigned to read in high school but you weren’t.)
  3. Read a memoir or narrative nonfiction book. (Examples: Friday Night Lights, When the Game Stands Tall, The Devil in the White City, etc.)
  4. Read a book in one calendar day. (Must be at least 150 pages long.)
  5. Read a book that you’ve always wanted to read but haven’t gotten around to yet.
  6. Read a pair of books that have antonyms in the titles. (For example: The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and The Boy in the Suitcase, or The Unbearable Lightness of Being and Heart of Darkness, etc..)
  7. Read a book that is set in a place you’ve never been but want to visit.
  8. Find a book written the year you were born that was later made into a movie. Read the book and watch the movie; compare. Or find a movie released the year you were born that was based on a book. Do the same thing.
  9. Go into a bookstore or library. Pick any bookshelf. Read the third book from the left on the fourth shelf from the top. (If it’s not at least 200 pages, pick the next book to the right.)
  10. Read a book about which you’ve heard bad things. (I’m NOT reading Twilight, come what may.)
  11. Read a trilogy (or any three consecutive books in a series). Total page count for all three books together must be at least 500 pages. (Remember, you can’t have read any of the books before. Suggestions: The Robert Langdon series, The Hunger Games, Twilight…)
