Since the wonderful Mackey over at macsbooks311 made this sound like so much fun, I thought I’d join in on my first reading challenge ever.
Passages to the Past has announced the 2019 Historical Fiction Reading Challenge, and the rules could not be simpler. All you have to do is read as much historical fiction as you want during the next year. All sub-genres count, and anyone is free to join. Since this isn’t a genre I’ve read much of, I’m hoping this will be a great way to diversify my reading piles.
Also, the reading levels you choose from have fun names, which makes my day:
20th Century Reader – 2 books
Victorian Reader – 5 books
Renaissance Reader – 10 books
Medieval – 15 books
Ancient History – 25 books
Prehistoric – 50+ books
I’m aiming for Victorian Reader. I don’t want over-commit, so five seems like a fair number.
So … Have you been using Wolf Hall as a doorstop? Got Alias Grace stuffed under your bed? Is Cold Mountain staring at you from the forgotten corner of your bookshelf? Excavate them, head over to the sign-up page, choose your level, and join me in a bit of reading.
