2019 When Are You Reading? Challenge – Sign Up Post


I’m joining in again with Sam’s 2019 When Are You Reading? Challenge. Here’s what she says about it:

“I’ve decided on one small change this year. I’ve struggled to find books set in the 1600s for two years. It’s just not a very exciting time in world history! So I’ve decided to make 1500-1699 one category, 1300-1499 another, and make the earliest Pre-1300. We’ll see how this helps this year. So, here are the time periods:

  • Pre 1300
  • 1300-1499
  • 1500-1699
  • 1700-1799
  • 1800-1899
  • 1900-1919
  • 1920-1939
  • 1940-1959
  • 1960-1979
  • 1980-1999
  • 2000-Present
  • The Future

Quick and simple! It averages to one book per month, a cinch for readers like you! I usually find I fill up 2/3 of the time periods without trying and then find myself searching to fill the last few around October. It’s really a joy and I’ve loved doing it the past few years. I’ve created a homepage for the challenge and I’ve got my progress page all set up. If you want to join in, let me know! I’ll add a link to your progress page/post or blog to the list of participants. I hope you’ll join me. Happy reading!”

    That’s the era of the Hundred Years War. Edward III, Henry V, Joan of Arc. Plenty of good stuff to look for once you know the players. Are these books written in that era or are they taking place in that era? Fiction, nonfiction, does it matter?

    Oh I didn’t know the new challenge was going live already! I’m definitely joining again, especially since she made the era change since I always struggle to find those 1600s titles as well. xD Good luck!

    1600’s a favourite period for me as it covers The Restoration. Try Restoration and Merivel a man of his time, both by Rose Tremain. My favourite book ever is Forever Amber by Kathleen Winsor. Happy Reading.
