Amy from My Friend Amy and Deborah from Books, Movies, and Chinese Food came up with a great Challenge to encourage Christian Fiction reading. I enjoy Christian Fiction and seeing this challenge tonight I knew I had to jump on!
The hard past was to decide at what level did I want to do this challenge. Here are the choices:
Total Christian Fiction Newbie:
This is only for those who have read no Christian fiction before…the challenge is to read one book from any of the Christy Awards Winners!
1st Tier – 2009 Favorite Category Read All Nominated Books 3-4 books
2nd Tier – Any ONE Years Favorite Category – 3-4 Books or mix 3-4 winners from any category
It’s All in the Winners
3rd Tier- 2009 Winners – 9
4th Tier- Any ONE Year’s Winners 7-9 or mix’n’match 7-9 winners
5th Tier – Read 2009/or ANY Year All Books 36-40 Books
6rd Tier – Read all the nominees in your favorite category
7th Tier – Read all of the winners in every category
The Christy Challenge–Perpetual Challenge
Read all of the books nominated and awarded the Christy challenge throughout the course of your lifetime.
I think I am going to go with 1st Tier – 2009 Favorite Category Read All Nominated Books 3-4 books… the opportunity lies in the fact that there are two categories I am really interested in so…. I would like to do 1st Tier x 2… two different categories and here are the lists I would read for this challenge:
The Rook by Steven James – WINNER
By Reason of Insanity by Randy Singer
Winter Haven by Athol Dickson
Vanish by Tom Pawlik – WINNER
The Battle for the Vast Dominion by George Bryan Polivka
Shade by John D. Olson
Here is all the information on this challenge here and where you can sign up too!
1. The Fruit Of My Lipstick by Shelley Adina I know…. not on my “to read” list for the challenge categories I selected but on the list none the less! 🙂

I was thinking about joining this challenge as well..I should look if there’s anything ‘historical’ in the reads that could interest me.

Great challenge! Read all you can and read what builds. I hope I have achieved that with my newly released novel, Angela 1: Starting Over. If interested in checking out what it’s about, follow the link to my website. Thanks!
