Sam at Taking on a World of Words is hosting a When are you reading? challenge that I am pledging to complete. The challenge is based on when a work is set (or written). I have reproduced her rules below. Check it out and join me!
It’s a short challenge, only 12 books, which challenges you to read books set or published in different time periods. Those periods are:
- Pre 1500
- The Future
At only one book a month, this one has always been fast and fun. Often I find the books I was going to read anyway fit into the time periods. There are very few ‘rules’ associated with the challenge. I put it in quotations because you’re free to do what you want with it.
- My pre 1500 book is Josephine Tey’s Daughter of Time, which focuses on Richard III, who lived in the 1400s. I blogged about it here.
- My 1600-1699 book is Stacy Schiff’s The Witches: Salem, 1692. I blogged about it here.
- My 1960-1979 book is Celeste Ng’s Everything I Never Told You. I blogged about it here.
