TNBBC’s The Next Best Book Blog: The 2017 David Bowie Reading Challenge

Okay, I know I said I’m going to be doing the PopSugar book challenge, and I’m sticking to that, but then I came across this reading challenge and I just had to share it.

I don’t know how far I’ll get with this one, but I like it too much to not at least add it to my own personal reading challenges of the year. Once you take a look at the (admittedly huge) list, I’ve gone ahead and made a PDF of it for your very own tracking purposes. Let’s see how many songs you can get through – I’m gonna start with Ziggy Stardust and work my from there!

    Define “bizarro novel”, because that doesn’t work as an Amazon search term.

    • It’s like art – you know it when you read it.

        Agreed, but it’s hard to fulfill the reading list except through a “read 100’s of books and hope lots of them qualify under one of the descriptors on the list” strategy if you don’t know what books to read.

  2. What I did last year was just read whatever I was reading and if it fit in somewhere, great. There were certainly books I wasn’t going to get (Library book, first book you see in a bookstore) since I don’t live in an English speaking country. That said, it’s fun to slot them in and see how many you CAN read.

    But then, I like lists and categories and stuff as a way to measure my own progress, whatever the theme. I use two different word trackers for my writing so I can see at a glance how much I’ve written. This just seems like an extension of that, same with using Goodreads (or Librarything or whatever one uses) to see how many books you’ve read, when you read them, what you thought of them ,etc.

    With this Bowie list, it’s more because I like the concept and it’s Bowie than anything else. If they did the same thing with Brittany Spears (or even the Beatles for that matter) I wouldn’t be playing along.
