Worlds Without End Roll-Your-Own Reading Challenge

The Definitive 1960s SF Reading Challenge

The Definitive 1960s SF Reading Challenge

The aim of this challenge is to read 10 books from the Defining SF of the 1960s list, one for each year, in chronological order.

Ideally this should follow on from the 1950s challenge, as part 2 of the Super-Epic Defining Books Reading Challenge, but if you just want to to do one decade, that's fine.

The 10-book reading level is the main challenge, with one book per year. The 5-book level is for people with less time or access to 60s books, but should still be attempted in chronological order if possible. The 15 and 20 books levels are for people who want to read more books. The additional books can be in any order, from any years, but a core 10 should still be attempted.

Challenge Details
Genre: Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror
Challenge Span: June 2015 – December 2017
