Presenting: The When Are You Reading? Challenge 2020

31 Dec

Yes, it’s a little late, but that’s always better than never. I’m so excited to announce the 2020 When Are You Reading? Challenge! My husband finished the beautiful image this morning. Isn’t it great?

I hope you’ll consider joining me for the 2020 edition of this challenge! I’m going to use the same format as last year. I think the change in time periods was effective and I’d like to give it another go.

The challenge is to read 12 books, one from each of the below time periods. The books can either take place in the time period or be written in it. The reader has the final say on if a book qualifies for the time period.

  • Pre 1300
  • 1300-1499
  • 1500-1699
  • 1700-1799
  • 1800-1899
  • 1900-1919
  • 1920-1939
  • 1940-1959
  • 1960-1979
  • 1980-1999
  • 2000-Present
  • The Future

I’ll be getting pages for the challenge set up today. Expect a few more posts about it this week and GET EXCITED! This challenge has been a great way to make sure I’m reading historical fiction from a variety of time periods. I hope you’ll consider joining me.

If you are participating, please let me know and I’ll include a link to your tracking page or blog on the page for this year’s challenge.

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!
