Announcing the 2016 Five Books Everyone Should Read Challenge

Posted January 4, 2016 by Rowena in Features | 2 Comments

Five Books Everyone Should Read was a feature we ran in 2015. We asked some of our favorite authors, readers and bloggers to share five books that touched them or have stayed with them throughout the years.  We hope you guys enjoyed this feature as much as we did.  There were so many books listed that we haven’t read, we’re challenging ourselves to read as many books from the list that we can, and we’re inviting you to join us.

You can read as many of the books featured last year as you’d like, but the challenge is to read at least five over the course of 2016. Rowena and I are committing to read at least six of the books from the master list. Each month, we will be reading and discussing one book from the master list.  You’re welcome to join us in reading the book each month, or you can choose your own to read.

Reading Challenge Details:

  1. The challenge runs from January 1, 2016 to December 31, 2016. Any books read before January 1, 2016 do not count toward your challenge.

  2. The challenge is to read books from the feature we ran here on Book Binge in 2015, Five Books Everyone Should Read. Popular readers, bloggers and authors shared the five books that they thought everyone should read, so the goal here is to read at least five of those books in 2016. You can find the master list here.

  3. To join the challenge, all you have to do is sign up below and track your progress throughout the year. You do not have to have a blog to participate. You can participate using your Goodreads, BookLikes or LibraryThing profile as long as you have a dedicated bookshelf for books you’re reading toward this challenge. It would also help if your profile wasn’t private so that we can see what you’re reading. Grab the reading challenge button to post on your blog and invite others to join us!
