Book Blogger Hop: Do you participate in readathons and/or reading challenges?

I ran across the Book Blogger Hop hosted by Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer. Each week they have a new book related question you can answer. If you are interested in finding out more, the next weeks question, and/or participating then stop by the Book Blogger Hop page.

This weeks question: Do you participate in readathons and/or reading challenges?

Of course I do ^_^ ! I’ve not done readathons, since my life doesn’t allow time for that yet. But, I have and do participate in reading challenges each year.

The first year I started blogging (2014) I didn’t do any challenges. I was just getting my feet wet and starting to dive into the blogger world.

In (2015) I participated in three reading challenges. I was dipping my feet in. (2015) – The Series That Never Ends, New To Me, & Library Love.

Then in (2016) I added a few more challenges, just to give myself more of a challenge. (2016) – March Take Control of Your TBR, New To Me, Pick Your Genre, Read My Own Dame Books, and Finish The Series.

And, now in (2017) I’m hosting my own reading challenge the Library Love and participating in several challenges new and old. (2017) – Library Love, New To Me, Pick Your Genre, Blogger Shame, New Releases, Backlist Reader, & March Take Control of Your TBR. 

I LOVE reading challenges. Setting that goal and meeting it or going over gives me a sense of achievement. I like the challenge. I like trying out new challenges and participating in old ones that all connect into what I read. 


Do you participate in readathons and/or reading challenges?
What’s your favorite reading challenge you’ve ever done?
Do you have ones you do

I would love to hear from you!

Reading challenges are fun because they give you a sense of accomplishment over doing something you wanted to do anyway—reading!

I love reading challenges. The problem is setting a goal I could achieve. There are two challenges that I haven’t seen resurface: the Around the World Reading Challenge and the Books in Translation Reading Challenge. The Around the World challenge made you challenge yourself to read books set in certain countries or be written by authors from certain countries. The Books in Translation Reading Challenge encouraged you to read a certain number of books in translation, or in their original language if you were multilingual.

I do love participating in reading challenges and read a thons, it can be so much fun and can really push your limits to read more. Especially when its a challenge that allows you to interact with other readers and book bloggers more.


Wow! Good job!! I used to do reading challenges and just got overwhelmed so I bowed out for a bit. Hoping to get back into a few though.

I enjoy reading challenges, but decided a break was in order for this year. I had started to get burnt out. I always find them so tempting in the beginning, but as time progresses, my enthusiasm wanes. I hope you have a great weekend!

I’m not one to do read a thons or reading challengers.I think I owe the writer my full attention, I read at a great pace,but I like to enjoy my books like a great glass of wine, to be savored!!

I am participating in fewer challenges as I find I’m having a hard time keeping up with them. I do the GR, and I joined your Library Love, and an audiobook challenge. I don’t know what happened to my drive to meet them. I used to be really good. I like the year long challenges because it gives me time to catch up when I go through a slump. I may have to check out this meme. It’s getting hard to find book tags.
