The Winter Reading Challenge sounds like it should be painlessly doable. Hosted by Robin of My Two Blessings, it started December 21st (so I'm a little late arriving), and runs until March 20, 2009. Books can be fiction or non-, and e-books and audiobooks are allowed. Overlaps with other challenges are OK, too, which means I can read some of the books I'd be reading anyway.
Participants can choose any number of books they think they can read during the run of the challenge. In the 2007-2008 Winter Reading Challenge, I read five books – so that's what I'm aiming for this time. But I'm adding a second list, just in case I manage to push myself a little farther. Together, they represent quite an eclectic mix.
My Primary List:
Santa Clawed, by Rita Mae Brown
Crewel Yule, by Monica Ferris
Daughter of the Stars, by Phyllis A. Whitney
Cover Her Face, by P.D. James
Drawers and Booths, by Ara 13 (an ARC)
My Secondary List:
The Master, by Colm Toibin
The Wench is Dead, by Colin Dexter
The Great Victorian Collection, by Brian Moore
The Double, by Jose Saramago
Three Junes, by Julia Glass
