It's The End of the World II Challenge (Sign Up Here)
Announcing the second season of the IT'S THE END OF THE WORLD (AS WE KNOW IT) Reading Challenge. I've changed up a few things, but at its heart it remains the same.
Name: It's The End Of The World II
Host: Me, Becky (of Becky's Book Reviews)
Dates: March 10, 2009 - October 9, 2009
Books Required: at least four
Read at least four books about "the end of the world." This includes both apocalyptic fiction and post-apocalyptic fiction. There is quite a bit of overlap with dystopic fiction as well. The point being something--be it coming from within or without, natural or unnatural--has changed civilization, society, humanity to such a degree that it radically differs from "life as we now know it." (Aliens, evil governments, war, plague, natural disasters like earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanoes, hurricanes, depletion of resources, genetic manipulation, etc.) Here is a wikipedia article on the subject. Also see here. These changes can be small-but-still-significant or huge-and-life-threatening.
Books can be classified as children's, young adult, and adult. (Not many children's books go there. But many teen books do. And they're great.)
Graphic novels can count for this challenge.
Audio books allowed.
Crossovers with other challenges are allowed.
You may have one reread that counts toward the challenge. But most should be new-to-you. (Exception: If you read it several years ago, and you can honestly swear that you don't remember anything about it...then I won't stop you from counting it towards the challenge. I know I've forgotten books I read a decade ago.)
Visiting other participants is encouraged.
Suggesting books for other participants (including the challenge host) is encouraged.
No lists are required. If you do post a list, then feel free to change it at any time.
