Courtney posted on her reading blog a few days ago about What’s in a Name?, an interesting reading challenge that spans one year, and requires one to read at least six books in that span of time. Seeing as this merges well with my 50 book challenge practice, I’ve decided I’ll join.
Basically, one has to read six books whose title match a certain, predefined criteria (see the challenge post for more information), and post the list somewhere. And then one just has to read the six (or more, I suppose!) books between January 1, 2008 and December 31, 2008.
Sounds interesting. I took a bit from my to-read list, since that makes a lot of sense!
