The 30-day Book Challenge

I’ve decided to take up the 30-day Book Challenge as already completed by my fellow blogger Katy (check out her blog Storytelling Nomad), from whom I stole the idea. Thanks Katy!
So this is it: everyday for 30 days (we’ll make that weekdays excluding public holidays), one post from me regarding my reading history.

The topics are as follows:

Day 1: Favourite book
Day 2: Least favourite book
Day 3: Book that makes you laugh out loud
Day 4: Book that makes you cry
Day 5: Book you wish you could live in
Day 6: Favorite young adult book
Day 7: Book that you can quote/recite
Day 8: Book that scares you
Day 9: Book that makes you sick
Day 10: Book that changed your life
Day 11: Book from your favorite author
Day 12: Book that is most like your life
Day 13: Book whose main character is most like you
Day 14: Book whose main character you want to marry
Day 15: First “chapter book” you can remember reading as a child
Day 16: Longest book you’ve read
Day 17: Shortest book you’ve read
Day 18: Book you’re most embarrassed to say you like
Day 19: Book that turned you on
Day 20: Book you’ve read the most number of times
Day 21: Favorite picture book from childhood
Day 22: Book you plan to read next
Day 23: Book you tell people you’ve read, but haven’t (or haven’t actually finished)
Day 24: Book that contains your favorite scene
Day 25: Favorite book you read in school
Day 26: Favorite nonfiction book
Day 27: Favorite fiction book
Day 28: Last book you read
Day 29: Book you’re currently reading
Day 30: Favorite coffee table book

Day One starts tomorrow. Let’s see how well the Gods of Discipline favour me…

    I’ve seen quite a few people have individual posts with this (although most of them don’t outline the entire list on their blog, at least not that I could easily find). I’ve thought about doing this, although I would probably just do 5 books at a time and get it over with in a week.

      It does make sense to do a few topics in one go especially since I noticed, while going through the list, that I’m probably going to have many repetitions.
      I think the idea, however, is not so much about the books themselves but rather the challenge of posting everyday, a bit like the post-a-day/post-a-week contests. That’s where the difficulty lies.
      Thanks for your comment!

    This is a really neat idea 🙂 I think I will put this as one of my Friday Writing Favourites because evening though it’s about reading it will get people writing! 🙂 YAY! All the best with it!

    • Nisha says:

      So true, you know I thought that if I had to blog everyday, it would distract me from my writing but its already psyched me up and I’ve just been so productive with regards to my own writing these past couple of days.
      Thank you so much for your comment and for your good wishes too! 🙂

    Woo! Looking forward to reading your posts and thanks for the shout out!

    This looks interesting, and I need something to help get my blog going! Thanks to you Nisha and Katy!

  5. It’s actually harder than you think to post everyday! I’ve been doing this 30 Day Challenge for about three months now! It’s great though to explore your reading past. Look forward to seeing what you post about! 🙂

    • Nisha says:

      I know its going to be difficult, whats also hard is trying to retrieve from my memory bank all the books I’ve read my whole life!
      Will be looking out for your future Book challenge posts too, good luck with it! 🙂
