The Eclectic Reader Challenge runs from Januari 1st 2012 to December 31st 2012. The aim of the challenge is to read one book from every category below. The purpose of the challenge is to push the reader out of the comfort zone by reading and reviewing books from categories they wouldn’t usually read. Unfortunately, I didn’t know about this challenge until now but I’m going to do it anyway, even if it’s too late for me to officially enter. You can read about the challenge here.

There is also an Eclectic Reader Challenge 2013, which you can read about here, but I thought the categories of the 2012 challenge where a bit better suited for me. Maybe (probably) after I have done this challenge I will do the 2013 one, too.
