2019 Read 52 Books in 52 Weeks







Are you ready for another round of Read 52 Books in 52 Weeks  Our reading quest began ten years ago and during that period of time,  our armchair travels have taken us all over the world and back again.  This year we are going to ramble and rove around the globe, following multiple rabbit trails. Whether you are a fan of fiction or nonfiction, like to juggle multiple books at once, love to reread favorite authors over and over, explore different genres, new to you authors, or stick to the tried and true, this is the place for you.   The rules are very simple. The goal is to read 52 books. How you get there is up to you.  

We have a variety of challenges including a new 52 Books Bingo as well as A to Z, Chunky, Dusty and Feed Your Muse to assist us in our reading adventures.  

Whodunit Bookology Spelling and author of the month --  Follow in the footsteps of Agatha Christie and her charming detective Hercule Poirot as well as variety of  bookish detectives, sleuths, and private eyes.

Brit Tripping --- A year long mystery read traveling the Roman Roads through England reading reading a book from each of the 45 counties with a few extra trips to London.  (Perpetual)

Agatha Christie  --  read at least three of her books per year.  Read the books in chronological order as listed, group by detective or collection, or randomly if you choose. (Perpetual)

Well Educated Mind --  Continue to explore the classics in 6 categories: Fiction, Autobiography, History/Politics, Drama, Poetry and Science. (Perpetual)

Since it is our Tenth Anniversary, there will be a variety of Ten themed mini challenges throughout the year.

  12. Started off with Hercule Poirot’s Christmas, then Francis Duncan’s Murder for Christmas and So Pretty a Problem. Fun, old-fashioned who-done-its.

  13. Does BW2 mean Book Week 2 in the 52 in 52 challenge? I'm not doing any of the mini challenges so when I see posts like BW2: Whodunit Bookolgy-Hercule Plot is that where I'm supposed to put my week 2 link?

    1. Yes, that's the spot for this week. Each week a new link widget goes up and the previous week closes. So no matter where you are with reading, whether it's book one or book ten, you will be linking on the current week's post.
