2018 Reading Challenges

2018 reading challenges I'm following

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

    British Books Challenge 2018 - mine will be crime fiction

    The aim is to read at least 12 books by British authors. This is really not much of a challenge for me as I read so much British crime fiction, so the challenge is really just a way of keeping my records. Not sure I will join an "official" challenge.

      The Aussie Author Challenge 2018 is being hosted at Booklover Book Reviews I'm aiming initially at Kangaroo (12 titles) but the reality is that I will read many more than that. Read and review 12 titles written by Australian Authors of which at least 4 of those authors are female F, at least 4 of those authors are male M, and at least 4 of those authors are new to you N; Fiction or non-fiction, at least 3 genre I can see I may have a problem with the 3 genre aspect.
