More Challenges - yes more!

The Chunkster Challenge is one of my favourite challenges, and this will be my third year of participating. I was really glad when Wendy decided to run the challenge next year. If she hadn't have volunteered, then I was definitely thinking about stepping up. All the challenge details can be found at the challenge blog. I will be signing up for the Mor-book-ly Obese level, which means that I am planning to read six or more books which meet the definition of a chunkster. This challenge runs from 1 February 2010 to 31 January 2011.

The Tudor Book challenge is being hosted by Benedictionary. I am only planning to sign up for The Commoner level, which is to read 5 Tudor novels. I was tempted to go for more, but in the end I decided to go for the lowest level in recognition of the fact that I am signed up to so many other challenges.

Like many other people, Meghan from Medieval Bookworm is one of my favourite Historical Fiction focussed blogs, so when she announced her A Tournament of Reading, I was pretty much instantly going to participate. Again, I am entering this one at the lowest level of Peasant, in this case not only because I have signed up for other challenges, but also, because as much as I love reading historical fiction set in this period, I am not in a hurry to read any medieval literature. Maybe there is something out there that I really should read though. Any recommendations?

And just because I can, have all you Richard Armitage fans out there seen the picture that has recently come out of Richard in his new role in Strike Back. Looking good as always! Thanks to the Richard Armitage Fan Blog for posting this!


  1. Good luck with your challenges!

  2. Hey Marg, have you seen this yet?

  3. I hadn't seen it, but I did like it a lot.

  4. I am so glad to see you're joining my challenge, Marg!

  5. If you're interested in one more I am hosting a new one for short stories.

    If you're interested , great! If not, that's ok too!

  6. Hi Marg! The new year is here and The Tudor Book challenge has begun. I wish you luck in your pursuit of wonderful Tudor literature this year.

    I have posted an official roster of participants in The Tudor Book Challenge. You can find that here.

    When you finish a Tudor book and review it, please provide me a link there so I can update your progress for the prizes we are giving away. Happy historical readings in 2010!

  7. I like the title of that book, some time I go I had decided to put off reading books but now I changed my mind and I think I'm gonna take up reading for the rest of my life.
