Announcing the Bookish Books Reading Challenge (Hosted By Yours Truly)


After my 2021 foray into the world of reading challenge hosting (at which I proved to be a right failure), I vowed never to host again. Famous last words! An idea for a reading challenge occurred to me while I was showering the other day and I decided why not? So, here goes...

I know I'm not the only bookaholic who loves to read books about my favorite hobby. Whether it's a swoony rom-com with a library meet-cute, a drama involving a book club of frenemies, a behind-the-scenes memoir by a bookstore owner, a biography of a favorite writer, or a tantalizing mystery that delves into the world of rare books, I'm there for it. Book stacks on the cover? I'm in! My eye will always be drawn to bookish books. I have hundreds of them on my various Goodreads TBR lists. One thing I've never seen in all my years of taking on reading challenges is one dedicated entirely to books about books. That is a downright travesty, my friends, so I made my own! 

This is a laidback challenge designed to encourage the reading of all those bookish books that are still lingering on our shelves and TBR lists. Any book counts as long as one of its main themes is books (reading them, writing them, hoarding them, stealing them, eating them, burning them, decorating with them, organizing them, sniffing them, selling them, etc.). Any book that is essentially bookish in nature counts. All formats are acceptable. Since this challenge isn't about pages read, length doesn't matter either. Picture books are totally fine.

Because it wouldn't be a challenge without a *little* bit of pushing, I created some levels just to make it more fun:

Toe in the Door: 1-10 books read
Picking and Perusing: 11-20 books read
Lost in the Stacks: 21-30 books read
Living in the Library: 30+ books read

I'm an overachiever, so I'm aiming for the Living in the Library level. 

Reviews aren't required, but they're always nice. I, for one, am perpetually on the lookout for more bookish books and reviews help me to know which are worth the read. So, I'll put a monthly linky up so we can all see what we're reading for the challenge. 

You don't have to have a blog to participate, but it's helpful to keep a list of books read for the challenge somewhere. Mine will be listed under the "Reading Challenges" tab here at BBB.

If you need ideas for the challenge, I've started a Goodreads list to help. I'm sure there are others there with a similar theme. 
The challenge will run from January 1, 2023 to December 31, 2023. You can sign up any time during the year, starting now. 

Challenges are more fun with friends, so please join me. Feel free to grab the challenge button, post about the challenge on your blog, and help me spread the word.
