So do any of the former "leads" on Shelfari have the bandwidth to do the Shelfari monthly reading challenges in sci fi, or historical fiction, or bios for 2017? I used to love those and would find so many recommended books to read. Books I would not have otherwise read, or books I had been meaning to read.

Of course, the reading challenges meant that my TBR list got pushed further back by one book that suddenly became a "currently reading" book.

Just wondering . . .

*And* I just discovered this site: http://www.librarything.com/groups/2017categorychallenge

It looks pretty well organized and there are definitely book challenges that will get me out of my comfort zone.

Now all I have to do is pick one, or three to get started!

It's a very fun challenge group! I've participated for 3 years now, I think. It's a lot of fun. There are lots of challenges, so it can be a bit confusing, but just pick the ones you want to participate in and hopefully you'll be able to follow along!
