Something About Me Reading Challenge

Since we're very close to the ending of the Spring Reading Thing Challenge AND the Once Upon A Time Challenge (June 21rst). I thought it was time to post about some of my newer challenges. This one hasn't even started yet. Something About Me Challenge

This challenge will start on August 1st, 2007. To join, you will choose up to 5 books that represent you in some way...if you are a stay at home mom, maybe the main character does that, too. If you are a scientist, maybe the main character is one. Or maybe you live in New York City and it's such a part of who you are that you choose a book set in the city. In any case, you will choose some books that would help us get to know you.

Then, on or by August 1st, you will choose a personal list of the books you want to read from everyone's lists of books. You could choose because the book sounds like a good choice for you, or because you want to get to know another blogger a little better. This blog will provide the forum for discussions about the books we are reading. Therefore, even if you don't choose a particular book, you might still follow the discussion about the book and get to know your fellow bloggers a bit that way, too!

Here's what to do:

* Comment on this post with your email address and I'll invite you to be a member of this blog so you can post your book choices in the sidebar. (NOTE: I've put the book list on the sidebar in a list format, so first enter your choices and end with your name i.e. Lisa's List and link that to your blog if you wish - see my example posted)
* Copy the button in the sidebar and post it on your blog, so others will see it and join us!
* On or by August 1st, post on the blog with your list of reading choices
* Review the books, discuss how the books apply to your blogger friends, etc. by posting here after the challenge begins!

I am going to wait until closer to the start date before I begin to pick from the very long list of candidates.
