Like, for instance, the Thriller & Suspense Reading Challenge, being hosted by Book Chick City. The timeline for the challenge is January 1, 2010 to December 31, 2010, and the challenge is to read 12 thrillers in 2010.
Just in case you thought it was too late to join in a reading challenge this year, it's not, many reading challenges are open for the entire year (Abi, at 4 the Love of Books, has a listing of 30 reading challenges, going on right now). And, don't worry if you don't have a blog, many of the challenges make allowance for that. Reading challenges are a fun way to meet up with new-to-you authors, and characters, and the bloggers who love them. Not to mention the fact, that many of the challenges offer prizes along the way!
So, it's one more week of Anne Shirley, and her small fry for me, and then look out Laura Childs, Agatha Christie, and you other mystery writers, here I come!
It's great to be a homeschooler.
