Book Challenge By Erin 9.0

Book Challenge by Erin 9.0 started a month ago but I am joining in now. I think the books that I read since the game started in July will count anyway so below is the list of challenges and my plans to meet them.

The rules:
• The challenge runs from July 1st to October 31st, 2018. No books that are started before 12 a.m. on July 1 or finished after 11:59 p.m. on October 31 will count.
• Each book must be at least 200 pages long. Audio books are fine too.
• A book can only be used for one category, and each category can only be completed once. If you want to switch the category of a book, or change the book you originally chose, no worries.
• You can read your books in any order you choose.
• Rereads can be used only once. If a book you love fits into a category, go ahead and visit it again. Read it in its entirety. But, only do this once for the challenge.
• There will be a photo album for each category with links to books chosen. Please comment on the photo for each of your books when you finish reading them.

Updated 11/1/2018 to reflect the books that I read for the challenge. Book titles in red highlight means I read the book while the books in blue are those I had chosen for a particular category but didn’t get around to.

    I wanted to join in the challenge this time but because I’m travelling I thought against it. I may just because I think Ive read several that qualify in July

      Did you make a list to participate? I’d love to see how many of them you could read by the end of October.
