This page is a record of my 2011 challenges; I will update if I choose to tackle more challenges (beyond the challenge of reading and updating this blog while also juggling work, kids, etc).
One of the benefits of book-blogging is the ability to participate in reading challenges! As soon as I began this blog, I jumped right in and joined a challenge. Then I noticed that some of my first choices overlapped with other challenges, so I joined another, and another….you know how it goes.
Here are the challenges I’m participating in for 2011, followed by the lists of books I’ve chosen to complete that challenge. I plan to cross the titles off one by one as I complete them, and completed titles will link to my review of the book as well. If the title is not crossed off, you will find a link to where you can purchase the book, linked through my Amazon affiliates account, so I may earn a small percentage if you purchase the book through this link. I will also be doing the Take a Chance challenge, but will be adding posts here as I complete the different mini-challenges, rather than making a list ahead of time.
Poetry Month Challenge, of my own creation
The Wind Blows Through the Doors of My Heart: Poems, Deborah Digges
Selected Poems, Wallace Stevens
The Wellspring: Poems, Sharon Olds
Special Orders: Poems, Edward Hirsch
So far, I’ve got a list of twenty-four books spread across five challenges. Wish me luck!
