Decided to continue the Gum trees and Galaxies tradition of hosting the Gaia/Nature reading challenge. Afraid I have been a bit slack over the last few months falling into a bit of a slump. Back on track again.
To participate just leave a comment below. You don’t have to have a blog, but if you do blog, feel free to leave a link back to your blog and feel free to use the badge above. The 2022 mascot is a sugar glider, had heaps of fun playing with Canva to create the badge. You can also leave a link back to your Goodreads, Facebok, or Instagram account if those are the platforms you would like to record your reads on.
I will create another short book bingo in the coming days but there are no real rules. Pledge to read as many or as few nature themed books as you would like. I feel confident to commit to reading at least one nature or environment themed book for each month of the year. The titles you choose can be either fiction or non-fiction they just have to have a bit of a nature or environment theme to them. You might get some ideas here on the Gum trees and Galaxies list of nature themed reading. The list is a work in progress and I will be updating it over the Christmas break, at the moment each title links to its GoodReads page and or a blog review to give you more information. There will be more information to come, but for now, if interested in joining please leave a comment and feel free to link to your preferred social media platform.
Got any suggestions on how to make the challenge fun? I would love to hear them so please leave a comment and if you would like to joint host this challenge with me also let me know. How about suggestions for some monthly themes? I am thinking about starting the year off with a focus on kids nature books in January. So many great kids books on this theme and a fun gentle way to ease into the reading year.
The challenge will officially start from the 1st of January 2022 and run until the 31st of December 2022. You can sign up now via the comments on this post. It is optional if you want to pledge to read particular titles but I would love to know what others are reading.
