Or, what should be called The Incredibly Derivative bibliographing Reading Challenge. Amateur Reader, you won’t be upset, will you?
No, he’ll be inspirational! I’ll be stealing a few of the rules from the Scottish Literature Reading Challenge and Clishmaclaver, which was great fun, but also making some changes.
The object: some sweet, sweet blog discussion and reading recommendations.
The rules: You read a book, challenge me to read it, and we both write about it. The book must be published before 1939, readily available, and not something I’ve read in the past three years. I’m up for writing about things I’ve read before as well as re-reading things I encountered a while back, but nothing too recent. Here are my reading lists for 2008, 2009, and 2010 for reference.
How much crazier is this than the Scottish Reading Challenge? I’m hoping that since I only have about five readers it won’t be too crazy, but I suppose we’ll have to see. I reserve the right the end the challenge at any time if it gets out of hand, and to respond on my own time. To participate, leave me a comment and we’ll work something out.
So what do you think? Got some good books for me next year?
