The Literary Exploration Reading Challenge 2014

Genre Challenges have become my favorite challenge the past few years.  It gets me reading books I would normally not think about reading and growing my to read list by bounds.  This challenge has three levels Easy with 12 genre's,  Hard with 24 genre's and insane with 36 genre's.  I am going to shoot for 36!!!!  And an awesome part of this challenge is if you go to the challenge here you can click on the name of the genre and it will take you to a list of books that fit that genre.  I am also keeping up with this on my goodreads.
