Family Tree Reading Challenge


Family Tree Reading Challenge
Host: Becky's Book Reviews (sign up)
January - December 2018
# of books: minimum 3,

Love reading? Love family? Love researching family history? Want a family-friendly reading challenge? 

Goal: To read a book from the birth year of your selected family members (at least three books). You do not have to mention them by name, unless you want. But do please list the years you'll be reading. You may include yourself in your 'family tree.'
For more details, see the sign-up page (link above).

**************
My Plan: To read at least five books--one for me, my husband and son as well as my mom and dad. I may get ambitious and do a more complete family tree, but my commitment will be met at five. Here are the years:

Mom (1947): Another Woman's House by Mignon G. Eberhart (2/10/18)
Dad (1948): I Capture the Castle by Dodie Smith OR The Black Piano by Constance & Gwyneth Little OR Death in Shallow Water by Miles Burton OR Blood on the Dining Room Floor by Gertrude Stein
Husband (1966): World's Best Science Fiction: 1966 by Donald A. Wollheim & Terry Carr, eds (1/9/18)
Son (1992): The Further Adventures of Sherlock Holmes: The Seventh Bullet by Daniel D. Victor OR Bloody Ten by William F. Love
Me (1969): The Stately Home Murder by Catherine Aird (2/16/18)

This is a really interesting reading challenge - I've never seen it before! I'm already signed up to three for next year so I might need to keep my goals to those, but it's such an interesting way to focus your reading.
