Color Coded & Read It Again Sam, Reading Challenges 2022

 

There continues to be a lot of love out there for both the Color Coded and Read It Again, Sam Challenges. Since I don't monitor these quite as closely as my other challenges and my linky provided limits the number of linky "parties" I can provide, I am setting these up on the same sign-up and headquarters sites again this year. The Headquarters with review links and wrap-up links will be updated on the sidebar at the beginning of the year. Here are the challenge descriptions and sign-up links:

Color Coded Reading Challenge
 
Once again the categories will be more open--the color may either be named in the title or it may appear as the dominant color for the cover of the book. For "implies color" the image implying color should dominate the cover--for instance a large rainbow, a field of flowers, or the image of a painter. Get ready for a rainbow of reading in 2022. 

General Rules:
~Challenge runs from January 1 through December 31, 2022 and any book read after January 1 may count regardless of when you sign up. You may sign-up any time.

~Read nine books in the following categories:
1. A book with "Blue" or any shade of Blue in the title/on the cover.
2. A book with "Red" or any shade of Red in the title/on the cover.
3. A book with "Yellow" or any shade of Yellow in the title/on the cover.
4. A book with "Green" or any shade of Green in the title/on the cover.
5. A book with "Brown" or any shade of Brown in the title/on the cover.
6. A book with "Black" or any shade of Black in the title/on the cover.
7. A book with "White" or any shade of White in the title/on the cover.
8. A book with any other color in the title/on the cover (Purple, Orange, Silver, Pink, etc).
9. A book with a word/image that implies color in the title/on the cover (Rainbow, Polka-dot, Plaid, Shadow, Paint, Ink, etc).

~Crossovers with other challenges are fine.

~To Sign Up please fill in the form below. If you have a blog, please post about the challenge on your site and enter the url link. You may also enter a link to a Goodreads or Library Thing list, Instagram, etc. If you can't use the form for any reason, you may also sign up by commenting below.

~If you post on Facebook, Instagram, or other social media to log a book, please use #ColorCoded2022.

~At the beginning of the new year, I will put up posts for review links for each color category and the sidebar image will be updated to the new challenge links.
 
 
Read It Again, Sam

For those of you who love to revisit old friends in the book world, I present another round with Sam at the piano for all your reading music needs. While not quite as popular as the Color Coded Challenge, this one still has its devotees.

Rules:
~Challenge runs from January 1 to December 31. 2022.

~Levels:
   Déjà vu: Reread 4 books
   Feeling Nostalgic: Reread 8 books
   A Trip Down Memory Lane: Reread 12 books
   Living in the Past: Reread 16 books
  Just Give Me a Time Machine Already...: 24+ books

~Once you choose your challenge level, you are locked in for at least that many books. If you find that you're lost in a nostalgic haze and want to tackle a higher level, then you are welcome to upgrade. You cannot change down, however.
~Any book read after January 2020 will count no matter when you sign up.
~Crossovers with other challenges are fine.
~
~To Sign Up please fill in the form below. If you have a blog, please post about the challenge on your site and enter the url link. You may also enter a link to a Goodreads or Library Thing list, Instagram, etc. If you can't use the form for any reason, you may also sign up by commenting below.
~No blog or social media site? No problem! Post a comment below to announce your entry into the challenge and when you have completed the challenge just post a comment on the review site with a list of your books.
~Please use the Headquarters Page (updated link coming in January) to post review links and a final wrap-up post and/or comments. [Reviews are not required--but we'd love to see what you think about the books you've read if you do review.]
~If you post on Facebook, Instagram, or other social media to log a book, please use #ReadItAgain2022.

Thank you for hosting again. Even though 2021 was a bad year with reading for me, I'm hoping 2022 is much better!

Bev Hankins said...

Thanks for joining me in 2022, Laura, Tina & Cheryl!

I'm in for Color-coded, and adding a little personal mini-challenge within: Trying to complete with as many Erle Stanley Gardner titles as possible. I have located 7 of the 9 thus far (lacking White and Blue). PS...I do like your linked spreadsheet of the challengers, makes it easy to see who else is in!

Bev Hankins said...

Rick--thanks. Yes, I was trying to figure out how to link something like that. I finally got it!
