I know. I know. I already have a challenge for November. But how can I possibly resist this one? It has prizes! And I figure I can join in during December and January, easily reading my five selections. Here are the details from Michelle over at Overdue Books:
If you are anything like me your stack of purchased to-be-read books is teetering over. So for this challenge we would be reading 5 books that we have already purchased, have been meaning to get to, have been sitting on the nightstand and haven't read before. No going out and buying new books. No getting sidetracked by the lure of the holiday bookstore displays.
The bonus would be that we would finally get to some of those titles (you know you picked them for a reason!) and we wouldn't be spending any extra money over the holidays.
The time frame would be Nov. 1st until Jan. 30 and there will be some small, fun prizes awarded to random participants and/or those with clever review posts. There will be one random drawing for a prize to those who submit their list of books in the comment section by Nov. 15th but feel free to join any time. There will be another random drawing for those who submit five reviews by Jan. 30 for a small gift certificate to Amazon.So here's what I selected from my towering stacks:
The Other Side of the Bridge by Mary Lawson FINISHED!
The Swallows of Kabul by Yasmina Khadra FINISHED!
The Baker's Apprentice by Judith Hendricks
Leave Me Alone, I'm Reading by Maureen Corrigan READING NOW
A Circle of Quiet by Madeleine L'Engle
