If you like to read about other people’s lives, the In Their Shoes is a challenge for you. The rules are real simple: you pick the number of books that you want to read. They just have to be either a memoir, autobiography, or biography. This challenge started January 1, 2008 and it will end December 31, 2008. Sign up by Feb. 1, 2008. When you’re done you can post you reviews on Read This!
Contemporary fiction not your thing? How about reading one book from 8 consecutive decades? It could be 1800-1880 or 1910-1990. Hey if you are into Shakespeare, you could try doing 1590-1660. Or any other combination you can think up.Where you start is up to you.Books from this decade do not count. For more info click
Okay, so you don’t have the time or the desire to devote to some of these monster challenges. Becky from Becky’s Book Reviews is hosting two mini-challenges. First is the Jane Austen Mini-Challenge – read and/or watch two Austen books and/or movies. You can catch many of the movies on Masterpiece Theatre. The second is an inkling-related challenge. Read at least two books by or about C.S. Lewis and 2 books by or about J.R.R. Tolkien – movies are acceptable. Not so bad, huh?
