Brittany Morrison | 404 comments READING THROUGH THE DECADES
Duration: July 1, 2018 - September 30, 2018

Is there a topic that you are interested in learning more about or a subject matter that you love to get lost in? Now is your opportunity to read your choice of theme through the decades. What changes and what stays the same?

* You choose the theme and the decades, but no repeating decades.
* Choose books based on the primary decade they are set in, not the decade in which they are published.
* If a book is set in more than one decade, you may choose what decade to count it toward.

Brittany Morrison | 404 comments SPANNING THE YEARS
Duration: 1 July 2018 - 30 September 2018

As our yearly theme is Reading Through Time, this quarter we're going to travel through time as we span the years. With every book you read for this challenge, note the year in which they are set and calculate how many years between that point and the previous point.
If a book takes place over many different years, pick the most important one. You may revisit the same year in different books.
Example:
1. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (1991)
2. A Tale of Two Cities (1789)
3. A Farewell to Arms (1917)
1991 to 1789 is 202 years, then 1789 to 1917 is another 128, so that totals 330 years. And so on.

1. Brides of Eden: A True Story Imagined (1903)
2. Rebels, Volume 1: A Well-Regulated Militia (1775) - 128 years
