Here at Read This! we follow several book blogs. At any given time, the readers behind these blogs are involved in reading challenges, each with a given set of guidelines and timelines. We found one just recently that we thought we’d adapt for our patrons. It’s called the Genre Challenge.
Chose one of the following pursuits:
1. Read one book from each of the twelve genres listed below.
2. Select six genres and read one book from each.
3. Submit reviews of the books you read. You can do so either by picking up a paper form at the library, available on the Read This! display in the lobby, or online (click here for form.)
4. Only patrons of the Peabody Institute Library in Danvers are eligible to win the prize.
5. The Challenge runs November 2008 through May 2009
