Do you have a series or two (or 5) you need to finish or a series you what to start? This is the challenge for you. It's ow key so you can choose to read a little or a lot. There is no set schedule just read what you want, when you want. Every time you read a book in a series and post a review use the hashtag #SeriesRead2022 and tag @TheSpineView. You will be entered into a drawing for a bookish prize at the end of the year. #readingchallenges

StayCurious Oh I‘m so on board for this! 2d

From @peanutnine: “There are a lot of reading challenges for 2022 planned but nothing with a diversity focus. I was thinking of having each month of the year dedicated to a certain heritage or culture or minority.

I will post the list of monthly prompts ahead of time so you can plan your year if that's your thing. Let me know if you would be interested in joining a challenge like this! I'd love your feedback“

#AuthorAMonth is a relaxed reading challenge hosted by @Soubhiville. There‘s no commitment. Read as many as you like by the chosen author, skip months if you need to.

At the end of the year there is a prize box for “Most Read.” To qualify books must be finished in the appropriate month. There will also be randomly drawn prizes-anyone who has read at least one Author a Month book and is still active on Litsy is entered into the random drawings.

LitsyEvents Let @Soubhiville know if you‘d like to be added or removed from the tag lists:

Butterfinger @Libby1 would you like to join us for 2022? 1w
Libby1 I think I will, @Butterfinger . I‘m not very good at cooking or baking so I may source the food from restaurants or bakeries. 😊 1w
Butterfinger @Libby1 that is exactly what I do. I have been pretty lucky so far except for last month's Zambia. 😁 1w
Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick @Libby1 This year I've been so bad with the food portion that I've only had a banana from Guatemala. 🤣🤣🤣 I'll be enjoying some Mexican food this month, though. 1w
Texreader @Libby1 I‘m adding you to our group list. Yay!!! 1w
Texreader @Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick But your book reviews are so darned awesome—we all learn so much from you I think we can forgive you for missing the food half of the challenge. 😉😂 But Mexican food is very hard to pass up anytime! 1w
Texreader @Libby1 @Butterfinger When it‘s available I absolutely order out! But oh my gosh I found this Moroccan style steak and couscous my grocery store prepares to cook at home and it‘s now a staple. So don‘t underestimate your local grocery store! I so scored on that find when we had #Morocco month. 1w
Sapphire I have Yacoubian Building somewhere in my TBR so I think that will be my January read for Egypt. But here is a list for anyone searching: https://www.newyorker.com/books/page-turner/an-egypt-fiction-reading-list 6d
Texreader @Sapphire thanks!! 5d
Sapphire @Texreader I will remember tags in the future! Thanks for hosting these events. Looking forward and so excited my title is also a ROOT for me! 5d
Sapphire Planning is so fun! With my Egypt book selected I started looking for Argentina In February with an eye to also finding books I already own. Bingo! Fictions is on my tbr. Haven‘t read Borges since high school and that was in Spanish class. If folks are double teaming it with “books in translation” here is a list set in Argentina by LA authors : https://taleaway.com/books-set-in-argentina/ @Texreader @Butterfinger @Catsandbooks 5d
Texreader @Sapphire Yay! Thanks so much! 5d
Sapphire So I found 10 titles in my tbr and will post later. I don‘t have Kenya or Haiti so will go to the library for those when it gets closer rather than picking now. But this looks like a good list for Kenya: https://www.theuncorkedlibrarian.com/books-about-kenya/ 5d
