Happy 2019! This year, in my ongoing goal to read diversely, I’ve decided to join in on the Year of the Asian Reading Challenge! This awesome reading challenge encourages readers to pick up books by Asian authors in 2019, and is hosted by these wonderful bloggers:
- CW from The Quiet Pond (thequietpond.com)
- Lily from Sprinkles of Dreams (sprinklesofdreams.wordpress.com)
- Shealea from [new blog still under construction, oops]
- Vicky from Vicky Who Reads (vickywhoreads.wordpress.com)
Please check out Vicky’s post here (or visit any of the other bloggers’ sites!) if you’re interested in learning more about the challenge or want to join in! Also, I’m obsessed with the amazing graphics CW made for this reading challenge.
When you sign up, you can select the challenge level that you’re aiming for. In 2018, I read about 30 books written by Asian authors, and I’d definitely like to increase that number while leaving time to read plenty of books from other marginalized communities as well. So, I’m shooting for the Giant Panda level, which is 31 to 40 books!
I’m really excited to get join in on this challenge, and have read 2 books by Asian authors so far in 2019. Thank you so much to CW, Lily, Shealea, and Vicky for hosting this challenge!
I’ll be creating a page here on my blog to track my progress (check back at this post for the link!)
I hope you’ll all consider joining in on the challenge, too!
