Take a Chance Challenge 3

Host: Jenners at Life... with Books.

Challenge: Challenge yourself to take chances with your reading by finding books to read in unusual and random ways based on the challenges listed below. Challenge runs from January 1, 2011 through December 31, 2011.

I stumbled upon this very creative reading challenges and think it would definitely encourage me to expand my reading horizons and read books that I wouldn't have otherwise selected.

1. [Bookstore] Staff Member's Choice
2. Loved One's Choice
3. Blogger's Choice
4. Critic's Choice
5. Blurb Book [by one author who blurbs another]
6. Book Seer Pick
7. What Should I Read Next
8. Which Book
9. LibraryThing Pick
10. Pick a Method
[Random, Public Spying or Random Bestseller]

It should be interesting to see what books I take chances with through this challenge. :)

  1. Welcome to the challenge! I hope you have fun with it and get lots of fun and surprising books to read. Here is the link to the blog that I created to post your finished entries:

  2. Another one that I think you're going to make Christine, because your reading is more varied :)

  3. Thanks for the welcome, Jenners. I'm really curious to see where this challenge takes me.

    Thanks, nath. The nice part of this challenge is finding new and diverse book selections, but some of the searches use what I already read as a guideline for suggestions, so maybe some of the books will be ones I already hoped to read, anyway! Should be fun. :)
