description

I found this chart called the Periodic Table of Literary Elements. I thought it would
make a great reading challenge. It was published by the Lakes County Public Library
(in Wisconsin).

Most of the elements are self-explanatory, so I have not given a reading task to them (except for the first element). Be careful not to read a fiction book for the non-fiction elements. I changed #91 from Christian fiction to religious fiction to reflect our diversity. Reporting might be tricky for some of the elements like a blog post. Good luck. If you have any questions, feel free to ask. If I don't know the answer, I will at least give you my opinion :)

No page limits. Re-reads are okay.

I want you to create your own challenge.
You can read all the elements from a certain color.
You can read a few from each color.
You can find elements you've never tried before.
You can pick and choose which elements sound interesting.
Or you can be very brave and try to read them all.


Here are the elements;
1. book - read any book you wish
2. classic
3. romance
4. mystery
5. Christmas
6. ebook
7. audio book

I don't have any recommendations. Here's the Wikipedia page about altered books. According to the article, it looks like some altered books become art journals. I'd be interested in looking at something like that. An altered book isn't going to be much different from #17, a wordless book, right?

Mary C (marymaryalwayscontrary) | 901 comments West Cork by Sam Bungey

If anyone is into audio books and has Audible. this would work for 103: epistolary. It's a podcast turned into an audio book about a murder and uses news footage, police statements, radio interviews and such to tell the story of a murder in Ireland.

It's really good.

This is another one, I haven't read, for 103:

The Documents in the Case by Dorothy L. Sayers

Well the most I can possibly get is 102 because I can't read in any languages but English.

What is a "gentle read"?

I think you can read any book that was originally written in a foreign (to you) language and then translated to English.

What is a "gentle read"?
First .. it's in the "realistic fiction" section, so no fantasy, sci-fi, etc. Also, No sex, no violence, no death. Something like Philip Gulley's Home to Harmony series ... or even Jane Austen.

Denise | 649 comments would someone somehow indicate which books go with which color?
OR
which books go with the main categories?

I can't read the table and I went to the primary page to try to enlarge it but couldn't. I printed it out and used a magnifying sheet but its blotchy, I can see a few of them

Thanks in advance.

I'm on a tablet while I'm travelling, so it's too small for me as well. BUT ... when I get home I plan to look this up on the Wisconsin library website (original post) and check the categories/colors with the task numbers. That won't be until the end of December ... but it's a year-long challenge so it will still give you plenty of time.

Honestly, I'm not sure about some of the categories on the list. I imagine that it could be 'Chick-Lit" or something along those lines.

Denise | 649 comments OK thanks!


message 50: by Book Concierge (new)

Book Concierge (tessabookconcierge) | 2345 comments "women's fiction" is usually more serious than "chick lit" ... dealing with issues that contemporary women face.

A couple of examples:
Big Little Lies
White Oleander
