Completed Read Harder Challenge 2015

When I undertook the Read Harder Challenge put on by Book Riot this year I wasn’t expecting it to be too difficult. And honestly, it wasn’t. It did push my reading boundaries and scope – which is the point. It also introduced me to works I may not have given a second thought previously. All of this is good. Below is an accounting of all 24 tasks and the various books that satisfied the requirements.

  1. A book written by someone when they were under the age of 25
  2. A book written by someone when they were over the age of 65
  3. collection of short stories (either by one person or an anthology by many people)
  4. A book published by an indie press
  5. A book by or about someone that identifies as LGBTQ
  6. A book by a person whose gender is different from your own
  7. A book that takes place in Asia
  8. A book by an author from Africa
  9. A book that is by or about someone from an indigenous culture (Native AmericansAboriginals, etc.)
  10. microhistory
  11. YA novel:
  12. sci-fi novel
  13. romance novel
  14. National Book AwardMan Booker Prize or Pulitzer Prize winner from the last decade
  15. A book that is a retelling of a classic story (fairytale, Shakespearian play, classic novel, etc.)
  16. An audiobook  –
  17. A collection of poetry
  18. A book that someone else has recommended to you
  19. A book that was originally published in another language
  20. A graphic novel, a graphic memoir or a collection ofcomics of any kind (Hi, have you met Panels?)
  21. A book that you would consider a guilty pleasure (Read, and then realize that good entertainment is nothing to feel guilty over)
  22. A book published before 1850
  23. A book published this year
  24. self-improvement book (can be traditionally or non-traditionally considered “self-improvement”)
