Okay, I've decided to join a reading challenge. Sort of.
From my favorite podcast, Books on the Nightstand, I read about the 10-10-10 Reading Challenge where readers challenge themselves to read 10 books in 10 different genres of their choosing by October 10, 2010. This challenge is definitely too much for me. First, I certainly can't keep up with a 2 book per week reading pace. Second, I'm hearing about the challenge halfway through. But I really like the idea of picking a few genres that have been "background" goals of mine for a while and using a challenge like this to help motivate myself to dig into those areas.
So, my modified reading challenge for myself will be: 5 books in 5 different genres by the end of 2010.
My 5 genres will be:
- Graphic novels
- Jason's favorites
- From the to-be-read shelf
- History (nonfiction)
So here goes Day One! :-)
