Yep, you've probably already guessed it...I came across another new book challenge that I simply can't resist. I think I'd better just face the fact that until I find myself a good 12-step program, this is just going to keep happening.
Anyway, this is The Unread Authors Challenge, sponsored by Ariel at Sycorax Pine. Simple premise...just read 6 books in 6 months (Sept. through Feb.). New to you authors. Can be 6 new authors or 6 books by one new author. Real flexibility here. Be sure to check out the link above for specific details.
I found this challenge irresistible for a few reasons. For one thing, it's very doable (well, it should be anyway...though I have no business getting cocky now, do I?!!). Secondly, it gives me the excuse to read a couple of books I've been wanting to read anyway. And finally, a couple of my choices I should be able to piggyback with other challenges and/or homeschooling. On the down side, I now have to make the embarrassing admission that I've never read anything by these authors. Oh well...better late than never, right?
The list I've come up with so far...
Something Wicked This Ways Comes
A Short History of Nearly Everything OR
A Walk in the Woods
*Trenton Lee Stewart
The Mysterious Benedict Society
The Lovely Bones
The Amazing Maurice and his Educated Rodents
The Goose Girl
Oh my...I could make a list a mile long here...
