Last week I reported that I had joined J Kaye's 100+ Reading Challenge for 2010. and this week I have another challenge to bring to your notice.
Dorte from DJs krimiblog is organising a global challenge in which you try to read up to 14 books set all over the world. The books can be from any genre but there is a maximum of 2 per continent which will be challenging for some of us. Check it out!
How have you gone with giving books for Christmas? I must admit I haven't done all that well, although with Christmas shopping on the agenda for later today, perhaps I will be able to add a few more.
Things to check on my Blog
- The Frappr map experiment was a great success and I will use it next year. Check the results: there are 21 entries. The way I want to use it in the future is for people to add book images by location.
- The Suggest a Christmas title activity has also been a great success. So far there are nearly 40 entries. They are not restricted to crime fiction and it is not too late to be part of it.
- In the Crime Fiction Alphabet we suggested titles for the letter K this week. Tomorrow we start the letter L. It is not too late to join in if you are a crime fiction blogger - or crime fiction is just one of the genres you read. We are having a mini-break after Christmas and re-commencing the last 14 letters of the alphabet with M on January 11.
- Do you read Agatha Christie? Do you write about her novels on your blog? Then join the Agatha Christie Reading Challenge, participate in the monthly Agatha Christie Reading Challenge Blog Carnival. The next one will be posted on December 23.
