2022 Art Book Reading Challenge
Rebecca @ a humble place is hosting a 2022 Art Reading Challenge with seven categories. I’ve chosen the four options below:
- A biography of an artist from the 20th century (? Beatrix Potter by Linda Lear)
- A biography of an artist from the 19th century (? Van Gogh by Peter Burra)
- A book of fiction about an art movement, a piece of art, or an artist (? An Artist of the Floating World by Kazuo Ishiguro)
- A book about a piece of art, group of artists, or a single artist from a country that is not your own (? Painting by Lawrence Wilson)
Rebecca has studied Art History and has written articles for the Common Place Quarterly. Check out her blog for details about the Challenge, information on the other categories, and download her free printable checklist.
Carol’s Notebook has a ‘Cloak & Dagger’ Reading Challenge – You can read any book from mystery/suspense/thriller/crime genres. Any sub-genres are welcome as long as they incorporate one of these genres and books need to be at least 100 pages in length.
Some authors I’d like to read for this challenge are:
I have no idea how many I’ll get to read but I’ll have a stab at 16-25 books – Detective.
This year I’d like to read some books I’ve wanted to read for some time. They include:
Wives & Daughters by Elizabeth Gaskell – I’ve watched the movie a couple of times and as I nearly always read the book beforehand and haven’t I’d like to remedy that!
Cranford by Elizabeth Gaskell – as above 🙂
The Return of the Native by Thomas Hardy
In the Steps of St. Paul by H.V. Norton – in progress
Orthodoxy by G.K. Chesterton – almost finished this one
China Court by Rumer Godden
Elizabeth and Her German Garden by Elizabeth von Arnim – in progress
