Reading Challenges


If you love to read HF, if you love a challenge, if you want to join others in racing towards the “Historical Marker” that leads to the”Fictional” finish line, then come to this spot and  join the Reading Challenge Team!


I once had a student who told me her goal for the year was to read 50 books. Yes, 50 Books! Now to give you some perspective this young girl was in grade eleven (the toughest and busiest academic year of any students high school career), which translated meant she was carrying three sciences (biology, chemistry and physics), calculus, an AP English course and history. To this eight subjects for 10 months she was also part of the musical, student council and some other club I cannot remember what it was. Needless to say this girl had a lot, A LOT, on her plate and she was going to read 50 books on top of this!  This got me thinking. If she could tackle such an undertaking with so much demanding her time and energy, why not me? Why not you? So, my dear word wayfarer, I challenge you to read 50 books over the next 12 months. Any books, fiction, non-fiction, biographical or memoirist…whatever you want.

I do however have some guidelines:

1. You must not have read this novel in the past.

2. The novel must be a published book.

3. The novel must be a minimum of 250 pages.

4. The book may not be a graphic novel.

5. The Challenge begins January 1, 2015 and ends December 31, 2015 at 11:59 p.m.

Once you have completed your challenge, let us know what you read by pasting your list back here.

Good luck!
