2019 Reading Challenges
(I'm adding the 2019 challenges to the existing list of those for 2018,
so it's going to be a little mixed up for a while.)

The List
(In roughly alphabetical order,
with links to announcement/signup posts/pages.)

The challenges listed here are, in general (although it's not a strict rule), year-long challenges, open to everyone. I don't usually list read-a-thons, read-alongs, "personal" challenges, or challenges linked to special days or time periods.

Please NOTE: This list is NOT meant to be a complete list of ALL the reading challenges available for 2019. It's mainly just challenges that seem attractive to me. But I'm not necessarily recommending any of these — just keeping track.

Two more things. In general I'm not a fan of the "check list" type of reading challenge with a bunch of set categories — so I'll list a few, but not every one of them. Also, I don't do a lot of social media hanging out, so if a challenge is being hosted primarily on Facebook or Twitter or Instagram, you probably won't find it on this list.

    1. Hi, Jamie. Thanks for pointing the way to this challenge. Actually, though, there are so many "check-list" type challenges out there like this one, I decided not to include them in this list. I sort of think of them as personal reading goals-lists which, while they are definitely valuable tools, tend to differ from individual to individual. I thought about including the POP-Sugar list, since it seems to be the most popular, but in the end just decided to do a separate listing of all the checklists -- I just never got around to it!

  16. I am unsure how often you pick up messages at Goodreads. Even though Blogspot does not make commenting easy for Wordpress or rural internet and rejects them, if there is a captcha; I had better see about adding my 3/4 2019 groups that are ready.

Welcome and thanks for leaving me a comment. I love to hear from visitors.

Also, please note that while I appreciate the thought, I don't play the blog awards game. I think you all deserve awards! But you might think about becoming a follower of my blog -- that would really be the best award.
