While I was Reading 2022 Challenge Categories

Hello and welcome to the fifth annual While I Was Reading Challenge!

I know this is the time of year when my readers get excited about the new categories, so that inspires me to get creative and make a new list!

My goal is to create categories that are challenging and personalized, yet not too difficult as to be extremely limiting or frustrating. I stuck with 12 categories to keep it realistic and accessible to people with less reading time than myself!

All you have to do is read, no other participation is required. If you start and don’t finish, that’s okay. And if you want to interact with me and other readers, I’ve got some ways for you to do that at the end of this post.

I don’t want to make you wait any longer, so here you go…

2022 Reading Challenge Categories

  1. A book with a question in the title.
  2. A book of non-violent true crime.

I can’t wait to hear from everyone who is planning to participate in 2022! The last couple years have been difficult and I dropped the ball on my newsletter. One of my top goals for 2022 is to get to it regularly, so I’ll be in touch with category suggestions, and other reading related tips, and recommendations.
