I'm so glad I found this challenge, since I was just talking with my brother last night about how I need a new challenge to help me stretch a bit (try out some "real" science fiction, is what he was recommending, hee hee). Here's the scoop:
- Read 10 award winners from August 1, 2008 through June 1, 2009.
- You must have at least FIVE different awards in your ten titles.
- Overlaps with other challenges are permitted.
- You don't have to post your choices right away, and your list can change at any time.
- 'Award winners' is loosely defined; make the challenge fit your needs, keeping in mind Rule #2.
- SIGN UP using Mr. Linky below.
- Have fun reading!
