It’s nearly at the end of this year’s challenge we hope you are still enjoying it and reading along, we know some of you are reading lots of books by the amount you are sharing on the Cwts Discussion Group page. As we approach the end of the year, get your thinking hats on for next year’s challenge. We will be asking for ideas very soon.
Just a reminder of this year’s challenge, we wanted to stick to the inclusive style of the 2020 challenge but have different categories. We’re still going to have the three options, Easy, Hard and Super Reader but this year’s monthly category will be “Read Around the World”. Hopefully, this will mean that everyone can join in, whether you read one book a month or three or more!
September’s categories are:-
EASY – ALPHABETICAL CHALLENGE
Read a book with a title that begins with a K or a W.
I’m not going to list recommendations this year as obviously, the number of books fitting these categories is endless.
HARD – MONTHLY CATEGORY CHALLENGE
Read a book set in or by an author from East or West Africa
Here are just a few suggestions:
The Girl with the Louding Voice – Abi Dare
Cutting for Stone – Abraham Verghese
Homegoing – Yaa Gyasi
The Poisonwood Bible – Barbara Kingsolver
Out of Africa – Karen Blixen
Suggested authors from East and West Africa included Petina Gappah, Helon Habila, Chigozie Obiama, Violet Bulawayo, Helen Oyeyemi, Tomi Adeyemi, Ben Okri, Teju Cole, Chibundu Onuzo
SUPER READER – READ HARDER CHALLENGE
Read a book with a title beginning with K or W (or both) and read a book set in or by an author from East or West Africa.
As usual pick a book from our list, pop along to your local book shop or library, order something online or pick up something that’s already in your TBR pile.
Don’t forget to share what you are reading in our Cwts Club Discussion Group.
