This idea was born of a Twitter conversation while NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) was winding down. A few of us thought that a month of reading would be a very good thing. There’s nothing like competition / sharing results to keep you motivated!
John Wiswell posted the ingural post on his blog a few days ago (and I missed it due to my internet hiatus) but here it is! Maybe it’ll catch on 😉 At the very least, I’ve got a stack of books to get through.
A caveat though: I’m not reading classics as #NaNoReMo suggests (the definition of ‘classic’ is debatable), but using this opportunity to get through the books that I already own, but haven’t read.
I’ll post progress updates on Fridays if you would like to join in.
So far I’m 1.3 books into January:
- Idoru by William Gibson – Done! I read the sprawl trilogy over many years, the last book first, the first book second, and the middle book last. The pieces finally fit together.
- Sleight of Hand by Peter S. Beagle – I’m 3 stories into this short story collection.
- Open Your Eyes by Paul Jessup – 15 pages in.
