Suggestions Welcome

Photobucket

The Challenge:
5 points: Read a book written by an author you have never read before.
5: Read a book you already have at home but haven’t gotten around to yet (from the library, from a bookstore, borrowed from a friend, on your e-reader, whatever).
10: Read a book written in the decade that you were born.
10: Read a book that takes place in the state/province where you were born. If you were born outside the U.S. and Canada, read a book that takes place in the country you were born.
15: Read a book titled The _______'s Daughter or The _______'s Wife.
15:  Read a book that was originally written in a language other than English.
20: Read a book with a number in the title. This could be an actual digit or a number like “hundred” or “thousand.” No arbitrary numbers are allowed (e.g. several, few, many, couple).
20:  Read a book set during Christmas or another winter holiday.
20: Read a book written by an author who shares your initials.
25: Read a Pulitzer Prize winner or finalist for fiction.
25:  Re-read a book.
30: Read three books from three different genres (e.g. romance, historical fiction, horror, biography, etc.).

One of my favorite bloggers is hosting another book challenge and I'm super late to the game. If you want to play catch up like me, click the image and sign up! I participated (and failed to complete) the summer challenge and it was a lot of fun. Here's hoping I can keep up this time around. Does anyone have any suggestions for any of the categories?

  2. Have you read anything by Agatha Christie? For an author you may not have read yet. To Kill a Mockingbird is always a great re-read AND it's a Pulitzer prize winner, too. There's so many good books with numbers in the title....The Sign of Four by Arthur Conan Doyle is the first one that comes to mind but I don't know if a novella counts as a book...
    As you can see, I like mysteries, recommending both Hercule Poirot and Sherlock Holmes. :P
