Jannene | 571 comments THE EVERY YEAR CHALLENGE
Duration: January 1 - December 31, 2016

Your goal is to read a book published every year since you were born, or you can choose a year something special happened (e.g, you graduated, you got married, etc.) and read from that year.

This challenge will help us check out the literary styles from different years.

I'm going to start with the year I graduated from high school which is 23 books.

Blagica  | 12049 comments forgive me if I am being too forward but I know many people in this group may have a number of series to read would you consider posting it as a quarter challenge or monthly challenge so people can join the fun?

Blagica, it doesn't quite work like that. Only the moderators can post challenges. But we have done series challenges in the past, so maybe post it in the suggestions thread?

So, your gif got me reading through your thread! I'm not a big series reader (I usually get bored about book 3), but I do love the show Bones. Is the series better?

I find the series a lot better than the show. You'll find that Tempe is not like she is in the show. She has feelings and is less like a robot. Booth is not really Booth but a guy named Andrew Ryan. He is from Quebec and she is from North Carolina. She has a daughter, Katy, a sister, and nephew. They seem totally different.
