GLBT CHALLENGE 2011
GLBT Challenge 2011
Sign up and details at the dedicated blog.
January 1, 2011 through December 31, 2011
The basic idea of this challenge is to read books about GLBT topics and/or by GLBT authors.
The challenge runs year-round as usual, but instead of requiring a certain number of books, this year I'm handling this challenge in a more do-it-yourself sort of fashion. You set your own goal. It doesn't matter if that goal is 1 book, 10 books, a percentage of your books, or to read from various age groups/genres. Your goal is completely up to you. Design this the way you want. Make it work for you. The important thing here is simply to get us reading GLBT lit.
You don't need to choose your books right away, and they can change at any time. Overlaps with other challenges are fine.
In January, I will put up a review linky. Those links help serve as a reference for others. They are also how I will track participants for the end of year prize drawing. For each book you review and link up, the greater your chance will be at winning. At the end of 2011, I will use random.org to select one participant - from the review linky - to win a book of their choice (up to $20) from the Book Depository.
My goal starting out is two books...may add more later.
1. Promised Valley Rebellion by Ron Fritsch (Review)
2. Eromenos by Melanie McDonald (Review)
