Guys, I have a problem.
THERE ARE TOO MANY GOOD BOOKS.
I borrow bunches from the library, ‘buy’ Kindle freebies, sign up for ARCs and review copies…books have invaded my life in every way and I love it. But all those shiny new books make me a little sad, too. Because they mean that I don’t have much time to reread old favorites.
So I created…
Here’s how it works!
-Make a list of all the awesome books you’ve wanted to reread for forever but kept putting off because of Lack of Reading Time.
-Post the list on your blog (or, if you don’t have a blog, in the comments below) and link back to this post (if you have a blog) to proclaim your participation in this blog event. I’ll add you/your blog to the list below of all the participants.
-When October 2018 comes around, tackle that list! Even if there are a dozen new, awesome releases at the library. (Okay, I’m not going to force anyone to ONLY read from their list in October because I couldn’t even if I wanted to. I’m pretty much going to read exclusively from my list throughout October, but do whatever works for you!)
-Don’t feel like you have to read every book on your list. I know I won’t possibly get to everything I’ve got written down. But I’ll sure have fun trying.
-Feel free to blog about your progress (or comment on my own progress reports with your own updates if you don’t have a blog). At the end of October I’ll assemble a master list of all your (and my) posts (at the start of the event, I’ll create a separate post where you can keep returning to share your blog post links).
-This will probably be an annual thing if enough people join/enjoy it.
Here’s a smaller version of the button that you can share on your blog’s sidebar or in a blog post (or you can snag the one above – again, whatever works for you).
Annnnd here’s my own list of books I hope to reread during the challenge!
The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer
Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins (I’ve already read the previous two books this year)
Eve’s Daughters by Lynn Austin
To Tame A Land & Last Stand At Papago Wells by Louis L’Amour
