FFB 30 Day Book Challenge Redux (Warning: Restaurant Post)

Last July I took part in a month long challenge where I had to daily share one book (one I had read) that best fit into a specific category. For example: Day 1: Favorite Book, Day 16: Longest Book you’ve Read.

This week, instead of my usual posts, I will be updating the my choices for the 30 Day Book Challenge, since some are just not as applicable as they were last year. (I will exclude the book I just finished reading and book am currently reading challenges, since that feels silly to do after creating my new page: The List.)

I apologize to everyone wanting to see a Quote of the Week, Artist’s Corner, Visual Artwork, and/or FFR this week. I will continue that normal schedule next week. Ultimately, I think the “challenges” are fun side projects to continue updating every year—-In other words, expect to see a FFB 30 Day Movie Challenge Redux sometime in October too 🙂

The updates will be as follows:

(Monday) Day 2: Least favorite book
(Tuesday) Day 17: Shortest book you’ve read
(Wednesday) Day 20: Book you keep thinking about
(Thursday) Day 21: Favorite picture book from childhood
(Friday) Day 30: Favorite coffee table book

If you missed the challenge last year, or forgot, and are curious, the final results last were as follows:

Day 1: Favorite book (Moby-Dick)
Day 2: Least favorite book (The Pearl)
