Bibliographic books challenge

For a reader, reading about reading is a great pleasure. There's something about reading about the act of reading - or the act of writing - that's hugely enjoyable, and that's why I'm looking forward to the bibliographic books challenge, hosted by Lesley. Check it out here.

Here are the details:

The challenge will be to read a set number of books that focus on books or reading. These can be fictional works, such as The Eyre Affair or The Shadow of the Wind; or non-fiction works such as 84, Charing Cross Road or The Polysyllabic Spree. There are hundreds, if not thousands, of books out there that would fit this challenge.

The challenge begins on January 1, 2010 and ends on December 31, 2010. You must sign up for the challenge by January 31st, 2010.

Only books read during the challenge will count. You may reread books as well as cross-reference books with other challenges.

You do not need to make out a list when you sign up and you can change your mind on particular book selections throughout the challenge. I like to have flexibility for my reading whims!

There are three levels for you to choose from:

  • Bookworm: Read three books
  • Litlover: Read six books
  • Bibliomaniac: Read twelve books

  • Beginning in January, I will have separate posts here for you to link to your reviews for the challenge and I will also host periodic prize drawings for bookish items.

    I'm going to go for the Litlover level.
