The badge for this Reading Challenge disappeared when the blog was deleted. Originally the blog post was located here: http://www.caffeinatedlife.net/blog/2013/12/01/a-year-in-re-reading-a-2014-reading-challenge

{Official Rules & Blurb}

The (very brief) rundown to this challenge:

  • This reading challenge runs from 1 January 2014 to 31 December 2014
  • You can join at any time
  • Any book is acceptable in this challenge so long as you’ve read it in the past; perhaps it was a DNF you wanted to revisit, perhaps it’s a book you’ve read and loved but don’t remember the details too much. It’s totally up to you how you want to define this
  • Linking your reviews to THIS POST (originally located: http://www.caffeinatedlife.net/blog/2013/12/30/a-year-in-re-reading-a-2014-reading-challenge-master-list) is optional but strongly recommended just so that we can share titles and thoughts with other bloggers, learn new titles out there and get to know each other in the process

Levels & Goals :

  • 1 – 4 books — Occasional re-reader
  • 5 – 9 books — Re-reading pro!
  • 10+ books — Re-reading champ!

{Reason for Participation}

The books I am outlining to re-read this year were books I made a bit of progress with towards completing prior to the challenge beginning! The total time I’ve attempted to read them goes back to 2009 and leads up until the close of 2013! A few of the selections I truly did read in full, enjoyed immensely, and am opting to re-read them in order to blog about my ruminations! Either that, or simply to visit once more with the characters! Others, I might have only had a nip and a nod of a glimpse into before they had to boomerang back to the library!
