Mostly the challenges that I follow help me direct my reading. As such, some will not provide a challenge, simply indicate how well I am doing.
Some of the challenges are external to this blog while others are hosted here or on a blog that I manage.
In practical terms I do allow some challenges to overlap, that is, most books will appear in more than one challenge.
In addition many of the challenges are simply continuations of challenges I took on last year.
