Today It Begins: The 2018 When Are You Reading? Challenge

1 Jan

Happy New Year! As it’s the first day of 2017, it’s also the first day of the When Are You Reading? Challenge! This marks my fourth year hosting this challenge and I’ll tell you for sure that it’s a fun time. It covers 12 time periods so it needs 12 books and you get all of 2018 to complete it. I’m very lax on rules because participants get to pick their own books, topics, genres, and can make calls on where a book falls in time.

Any book you’re currently reading but haven’t finished can count toward the challenge. I’ve got four in the works and I think I’ll cover three different time periods when I finish them all.

I have more information listed here if you want some more details. If you want to participate, let me know and I’ll add you at the bottom of the challenge page here. You can set up a progress tracking page like I’ve done here if you want. Any way you want to track is fine, even if it’s on a napkin that you use as a bookmark!

I hope you’ll consider giving this a try, it’s been very fun for me in the past.

Until next time, write on.

You can follow me on Goodreads, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram. I’m available via email at And as always, feel free to leave a comment!

    I’m not sure if I can commit to this, but I like the idea and will see how my reading year pans out.

      No problem! Join whenever you want and you can look at what you already read during the year and add those. Happy reading!

    I tried last year and my biggest failure was not tracking my reading! This year I am determined to complete the challenge. Thanks for hosting!
