As I renewed my four reading groups for 2019, I explained that I choose themes that accommodate the books I naturally read. I like a scavenger hunt in my collection; a fun way to categorize and share what I read. I hope you will join any of them: “Ethereal“, “Celtic Coasts“, “My Kind Of Mystery“, “Gentle Spectrums“!
There were challenges with too many hoops; bingo cards, a publication or purchase limit and an absence of some simple prize make it a fruitless effort. I store the reviews my guests created in my “past challenges” menus.
Kathryn is generous, with a draw bimonthly. We do not need to review but I do as soon as I have time to write them. The chance to win a book, since I do not use Kindle and gladly accept every advantage on offer, is motivating for me. I excel at thinking-up themes!
Thank you for thinking-up something fun again, Kathryn. Perhaps I host something for you and your subscribers, as well! Enjoy this post. :)
