Full house reading challenge 2017



Anche quest'anno partecipo a questa sfida ospitata dal blog Book Date
La sfida va dal 1° gennaio al 31 dicembre 2017 e consiste nel leggere un libro per ciascuna delle categorie elencate nella tabella. In totale 25 libri, perchè ogni libro può riempire una sola casella. 
E' permesso cambiare una casella che non piace assolutamente con qualcosa che si preferisce, ma solo una volta. Nel post a sfida terminata bisogna fare riferimento a questo cambio.



* Book about books. This can be fiction or non-fiction. It can be anything for example where the setting is a book shop for example. 
* Not really for you. This can be a kind of book you don't usually read, or it could be one you just DNF, or one you just didn't enjoy that much. 
* Diversity. Think ethnic, cultural, religious, and gender diversity and you may come up with something you think of as well, as the list is basic. But it must be somehow quite different to you. 
* Book from a list. There are heaps of lists out there, from bestsellers to numerous Goodreads ones.
*Authors UK/European author reads UK or European author. 
*Size Word in Title e.g small, little, tiny, huge, large, big, mini....etc.

  2. I sent an email to you recently re the second quarter link up. Not sure if you got it. If not could you contact me at thebookdate(at)gmail(dot)com as you are the winner of the second quarter link up. If I don't hear from you will have to pick another which I don't want to do without giving you a fair chance.
