After last year’s utter and complete Reading Challenge disaster where I did not manage to complete even one, I decided to really take it easy with the reading challenges.
However, my resolution frequently becomes dented when I come across such beautiful imagery tempting me to commit myself to reading challenge doom.
Carl from Stainless Steel Droppings has made it even more impossible not to accept this challenge by providing an option called “The Journey”. As per Carl…
This is really as simple as the name implies. It means you are participating, but not committing yourself to any specific number of books. All reading is a journey, perhaps none more so than reading fantastical fiction. By signing up for The Journey you are agreeing to at least read one book within one of the four categories during March 21st to June 20th period. Just one book. If you choose to read more, fantastic! If not, then we have still had the pleasure of your company during this three month reading journey and hopefully you have read a great book, met some interesting people, and enjoyed the various activities that occur during the challenge. It has always been of utmost importance to me that the challenges that I host be all about experiencing enjoyable literature and sharing it with others. I want you to participate. Hence, The Journey.
By participating in “The Journey”, I commit myself to reading at least one book from one of the following genres:
- Fairy tale
That’s easy peasy, I think :). I now have to decide the book/books that I am going to read on this journey.
Anybody have any suggestions for me? Anybody else wanting in on this challenge? It sounds like so much fun I really wanted to participate more fully, but alas! I know I am going to have my hands full with work, and so don’t want to bite off more than I can chew.
