2010 Christian Historical Fiction Challenge

1. The goal is to read and promote Christian Historical Fiction by reading at least 24 titles. That is two per month, but anyone who wants to commit to more or less is welcome to join in on the fun. Anyone can join. You do not need a blog to participate. I have started a CHF Ning to promote discussions as well.

2. Audio, Re-reads, eBooks, and other formats are all allowed. As long as the book can by purchased it counts.

3. Feel free to list a proposed lists of TBR (to-be-reads) but you can also list them as you go.

4. Duplicates from other reading challenges can also count.

5. Challenge begins January 3rd through December 31st. Books started before count. *wink*

Oh my goodness! That is quite a list! I'm sure I'll be adding to my wishlist every time you review one of these. :)

Laura Frantz said...

Margaret, Love your list! A lot of thought and care went into it. I'm delighted as you've named some books new to me:) Can't wait to do this along with you. Thanks for such a creative reading idea!

That's the goal!

Miralee Ferrell said...

Thank you for including my new release, Love Finds You in Bridal Veil, Oregon, set in 1902. You might also be interested in considering my earlier one, Love Finds You in Last Chance, CA., set in 1884 in gold country. It has more of an old west feel.

God bless!
Miralee Ferrell
