The Color Coded Reading Challenge 2019 - My Sign-Up


Well, that was fast! No sooner did I finish this challenge for 2018 than I decided to go ahead and put in for next year.

Bev at My Reader's Block runs a pleasantly relaxed challenge and I enjoy the way it pushes me to read my chosen books without giving me too many rules to follow. As one example of this, the colors can be in the book titles or appear on the cover. That makes it easy to mine my TBR pile for books that will work.

Sign up here if you want to join in. 

My books:

Red: Chinaman - Shehan Karunatiliaka (DSC Prize)
Yellow: Whiteman - Tony D'Souza (Florida Book Award)
Green: Mud Season - Ellen Stimson (review coming soon)
Blue: A Fable - William Faulkner (Pulitzer Prize) Substitute: A Thousand Acres - Jane Smiley (Pulitzer Prize)
Brown: The Mambo Kings Play Songs of Love - Oscar Hijuelos (Pulitzer Prize)
