What, another one???!!!
I know I said "not so many this year" -- well, I say that every year, but this year I really meant it. (Do you sense a big HOWEVER coming?)
However, after I signed up for the Chunkster Challenge earlier today, that made thirteen challenges for this year, and I've always been very superstitious about the number 13. Sooooo, it was absolutely necessary to sign up for one more, just to feel safe. I mean, you can see that, can't you?
So, necessity is the mother of insanity here.
And this is one I had my eye on, anyway. The 2013 Book Blogger Recommendation Challenge is hosted by Jennifer at Reading with Tequila, and runs from January to December 2013. The idea is to read books from a master list of books recommended by a dozen book bloggers (see the list here), and there are five different levels of participation to choose from. I'll be signing up at Level I, so I'll be reading five books from the list. An advance list isn't required, but right now I'm thinking about:
- The Bell Jar. Sylvia Plath
- In Cold Blood. Truman Capote
- The Night Circus. Erin Morgenstern
- The Nine Billion Names of God. Arthur C. Clarke
- The Prestige. Christopher Priest
