2013 Books About Books Reading Challenge | Sign-Up

Introducing the 2013 Books About Books Challenge!

I wanted to come up with a good challenge to host in 2013, but I wasn’t sufficiently inspired until late January. I finished Start Here: Read Your Way Into 25 Amazing Authors and realized that I love reading about…well, reading. I enjoy essays on authors and literature. I have a few books on my shelves that I haven’t picked up yet, and I really should. In addition, I have tons of books about writing books that I really need to divide and conquer (I think my desk shelf would really appreciate it). And don’t think fiction will be left out – just read the details below!

Reading Challenge Details


  • Flash fiction: 1-5 books
  • Short story: 6-10 books
  • Novella: 11-15 books
  • Novel: 16-20 books
  • Doorstopper: 21+ books

I’ll host a discussion at the end of every month for participants (and lurkers). So, sign up below (you can post a Goodreads/Twitter link if you don’t have your own blog) and let’s get started!

    I have no business taking on yet another 2013 reading challenge, but this one sounds so cool and I love books about books! (I call them ‘librariana” on my GoodReads shelf. I will post about this on my blog and come back later to link. Great challenge, thanks for hosting!

    A splendid idea! I’ve hoped that someone would create a challenge like this.

    I normally restrain from taking up too many challenges at a time. But I can’t possibly resist this one! This year I decided to start reading non-fiction and I’ve found that the ones I enjoy the most are the ones categorised as “books about books”.

    I’ll sign up for the novella level (11-15) books. I suppose I’m biting off more than I can chew, but I’ve never liked short stories (level), so I’m going to try my best to read about 11 books.

    I don’t have a blog, so I’ve linked up to my goodreads shelf.

    P.S. Reposting because I forgot to post using my GR link.
