2010 Christian Historical Fiction Challenge

New Challenge Alert..... :o)

I have a hard time turning down any challenge that I feasibly think I can accomplish, and this one was a no-brainer. Margeret from Creative Madness is hosting a new challenge for 2010 for Christian Historical Fiction. Here are the rules:

1. The goal is to read and promote Christian Historical Fiction by reading at least 24 titles. That is two per month, but anyone who wants to commit to more or less is welcome to join in on the fun. Anyone can join. You do not need a blog to participate. I have started a CHF Ning to promote discussions as well.

2. Audio, Re-reads, eBooks, and other formats are all allowed. As long as the book can by purchased it counts.

3. Feel free to list a proposed lists of TBR (to-be-reads) but you can also list them as you go.

4. Duplicates from other reading challenges can also count.

5. Challenge begins January 3rd through December 31st. Books started before count. *wink*

From past experience, I'm not going to post a list of books that I intend to read because I never manage to follow them. This post will be the central location where I will keep track of the books I've read for this challenge. Can't wait to get started!

  1. Yeah I signed up for this thinking this will be soooo easy. Well wouldn't you know I think EVERY book that I have read in the past 2weeks has been contemporary?! Hahaha oh well I will be getting back on track since I have to read a few historicals to review next week! Best wishes with the challenge Christy!

  2. Me, too, historical lately! LOL! However, I am reading Julie Klassen's new book right now, which is historical and it's great!

  3. Awesome! I look forward to your reviews. I have been meaning to sign up for something, but I just don't know what! :)

  4. The only reason I won't sign up is 24 books seem like a lot. I don't know...I'm thinking about it.

    Good luck! I look forward to your reviews.

  5. CeeCee, I think Margaret chose 24 books for the challenge because that would be 2 per month. Not too bad when you think of it that way. :o)


I love your comments!! They make me happier than cold sweet tea on a hot summer day! :o)
