Katrina at Callapidder Days is hosting the Fall Into Reading 2011 self-designed, self-paced reading challenge! The guidelines are simple:
Each participant fashions the list of books he/she plans to read (or finish reading) this fall. The number and type of books on the list is completely up to the individual participant. Also, the list can be modified during the challenge, as necessary.
Each participant is asked to publish a post setting forth his/her list.
The challenge begins today, September 23, and ends on December 21, the first day of winter (and my birthday).
Each participant is asked to sign up at Callapidder Days so that bloggers can visit each other’s sites, read each other’s reviews, and, hopefully, get acquainted with some new sites and bloggers. Of course, this is also likely to lead to book purchases and the accumulation of more books waiting to be read. I believe that is known as an avocational hazard, so proceed at your own risk.
East participant is asked to publish a wrap-up post about his/her experiences during/with the challenge after it concludes in December.
Beginning Wednesday, September 28, Katrina will be posting a weekly reading-related question/writing prompt, e.g., reading habits, memories, current experiences, etc.
