Book Challenges

2011 Book Challenges that I am participating in; and my current progress.

Global Reading Challenge

Africa: Chosen Book- The Cairo Trilogy* by Naguib Mahfouz
North America:
South America: Chosen Book- Love in the Time of Cholera by Gabriel Garcia Marquez

Antarctica or Sea/Space:

*Technically, three books (hence, trilogy)….I may read all 3 at once, or if I am pressed for time to complete other continents, I may save the second and third for later.

Progress: I used some Christmas $$ to purchase The Cairo Trilogy and Love in the Time of Cholera. I can’t wait until they come in. I’ve always wanted to read Love in the Time of Cholera, so this worked out well. I don’t know what other books I will be choosing for the other continents, please feel free to make a suggestion!

50 Book Challenge

I’m not really sure of the origin of this challenge, but I’ve seen reference to it in a lot of places. The idea is to read 50 books in a year.


1) One, Two, Buckle My Show by Agatha Christie

2) The Mysterious Affair at Styles by Agatha Christie

Currently in Progress:

3) Fisherman’s Bend by Linda Greenlaw

Alphabet Challenge

Another challenge I am not sure of the origin of. The idea is to either do book titles A-Z or authors. Authors seems to be the more prevalent choice, and is slightly more challenging.

C: Christie, Agatha
