Mysteries (and suspense stories) are probably my favorite genre, so this is just an obvious choice for me. The Suspense & Thriller Reading Challenge runs through 2009, so even though it calls for reading 12 books, there's plenty of time to get it done.
Guidelines and a list of all the many types of mysteries/thrillers, etc. can be found on the announcement/sign-up page for the challenge. Here's how it works:
* Read SIX (6) different sub-genres of thrillers in 2008.
* Read SIX (6) different sub-genres of thrillers in 2009.
By the end of this challenge, you will have read 12 different sub-genres of thrillers. Don't worry about when you start this challenge. It officially ends on the very last day of December 2009. You have plenty of time!
You do NOT need to select your books ahead of time.
You don't need a blog to join in this challenge.
I haven't yet decided what I'll be reading, but my list-making mania is bound to kick in soon.
