New Blogger Book Challenge!

I got this interesting idea for a new Blogger Book Challenge, the other night. I'm still working out the details, but basically, this is what it'll be about....

You will choose 3-5 books, one per Genre (see below), and you will read those between (possibly -- this is the part I'm still working on) August - December 2007.

For example:

  1. CHRISTIAN ROMANCE: "Happily Ever After" by Susan May Warren

  2. CHRISTIAN LIVING: "How to Be Good Without Really Trying" by Mike Flynn

  3. CHRISTIAN CHICK-LIT: "With This Ring, I'm Confused" by Kristin Billerbeck

  4. CHRISTIAN FANTASY/SCI-FI: "Arena" by Karen Hancock

  5. CHRISTIAN CLASSIC: "Orthodoxy" by G.K. Chesterton (author correct?)

There are a ton of Genres you could choose from... Here's a quick list (there may be others I'm not thinking of...):

  • Christian Living

  • Romance

  • Fantasy

  • Science Fiction

  • Chick Lit

  • Mystery/Suspense

  • Classic

  • Historical

  • Humor

  • Inspirational

I have heard of soooo many Blogger Book Challenges "out there", and yet, there don't seem any that are specifically for "Christians". ;o) So, here we are... a challenge all our own! ;o)

Leave me a comment to let me know if you're interested, and I'll put up a Mr.Linky once I decide on the dates for this challenge *officially*. ;o)

There is a Christian Fiction Challenge (kinda) but it's a monthly thing. This sounds interesting. You can bet I'll sign up for it. ;-) I have lots of books in these categories.

I've posted this pending challenge on A Novel Challenge Blog (
I have a feeling this one will be popular :)

This sounds really good - I will have to try and get some Christian Fiction now. Oh dear a-shopping I will go :)

anyway to get out of the genre flipping? I really can't stand Christian Fiction almost in it's entirity (there are a few authors I like, but I've read all their works) I can read Christian living and theological works all day, though.

I'll be joining this one. I do a LOT of book reviews for Christian books so it'll be fun!!!

Pattie said...

For Dana, there are several nonfiction genres she's listed and I bet you could come up with five different NF genres from Christian publishing houses.
