Hello, faithful challenge participants!

I'm going to start working on yearly challenges in the next few weeks, so I'd love some input if you have ideas for them. To try to keep things interesting.

I was thinking about a Library of Congress/Dewey Decimal type challenge.

Any thoughts?

Of course, I will do the Mega-Challenge again. Have to! :)

Netanella | 192 comments Hi Danielle,

I love the longer challenges - yearly or quarterly, or even 6 months with set your own start date. I know this isn't really a challenge group, but a Dangerous Heroes group... ;) As long as one of the criteria would be a dangerous hero of some sort....

- I enjoy cover hunt challenges. So, instead of colors or objects, how about types of dangerous heroes on the cover. For example, assassin, thief, swordsman, mage, mercenary, archer, etc.

- I enjoy themed challenges - one month is just werewolves, or creatures of the night. One month is warriors of any kind. One month is first responders of any kind. I know this might be limiting to reading, but there's no rule that says you have to read 10 books. Maybe just 2 or 3?

Thanks all I can think of for now...

Those are great challenge ideas, Netanella. Thanks for the suggestions. :)

We will always have a dangerous hero specific yearly challenge, but we also have those that aren't specific. So it's all good!

+1 this

Andrea Jackson (paperbackdiva) | 181 comments As encouragement to branch out, we could do a challenge where we had to read a book from some different sub-genres of romance. Here's a good list: http://www.romancewiki.com/Romance_Su...

Andrea Jackson (paperbackdiva) | 181 comments I swore I wouldn't do any challenges in 2016 (no time for anything as it is) but this thread already has me salivating! lol. Oh well, I'll be reading anyway so I might as well use it for a challenge, right?
