# of books: minimum of 4
Love drinking tea? Love reading books? Love reading a book while
drinking tea? Have I got a reading challenge for you! In 2019, I'll be
hosting the Share-a-Tea Reading Challenge again.
Who can join? Anyone who enjoys reading. You don't need to have a blog. You don't need to have a twitter account.
Are coffee drinkers welcome? Well. You can still join in, I suppose. But you might be outnumbered by tea drinkers.
Which books count towards the challenge? Any book that you primarily
read while drinking tea. Not every single page needs to have been read
while drinking tea. (I'm not that strict!!!) But this challenge is all
about celebrating SLOWING DOWN and SAVORING the moments.
How many books? Is there a set minimum? This challenge is about QUALITY
and not quantity. It's not about reading fifty books or even twelve
books. This is an anti-rush reading challenge. Enjoy where you are in a
book, and, engage fully in it. Live in the book.
This challenge has a focus on SHARING. How can you share? Several ways:
1) When you sign up in a comment below, share one favorite tea and one
favorite book. And if you've got one handy: a favorite quote.
2) If you write a post on your blog announcing the challenge (and making
a place to keep track of what you've read), consider sharing a bit
about yourself--your reading and drinking habits. You might consider a
longer list of recommendations!
3) If you're on twitter, tweet me as often as you like. @blbooks OR
@operationbible Tweet about favorite teas, favorite books, favorite
authors, favorite quotes, what you're currently reading, what you've
just finished reading, etc.
4) Consider adding me and fellow participants to your blogroll, and
cheer on other participants by reading reviews and leaving comments.
5) At the end of each month, I'll publish a check-in post. You can leave
comments sharing what you're reading, what you've read, tea
recommendations, etc. Even if you haven't finished a book, you can share
where you're at. Remember, it isn't about how many books you read per
month! I plan on posting a check-in post on the FOURTH SATURDAY of every month. The check-in posts for 2019 will be January 26, February 23, March 23, April 27, May 25, June 22, July 27, August 24, September 28, October 26, November 23, December 28.
Be aware that comment moderation is turned on. So if you sign up for the
challenge, and don't see your comment published, it just means I
haven't published it...yet. But I will.
Do ask questions if you have them. I'll do my best to answer them.
