I’m going to sign up for two more challenges this year. The next one will be the 2nd Reading Challenge 2010.
The great thing about this challenge is that it’s not just for your second in a series books, but the second time you’ve read an author as well. This encourages you to give authors another try if you haven’t liked the book you’ve read or simply another excuse to read a book by an author you loved.
There are four levels:
– Curious – Read 3 novels that are 2nd in a series or second time you’ve read the author.
– Fascinated – Read 6 that are 2nd in a series or second time you’ve read the author.
– Addicted – Read 12 novels that are 2nd in a series or second time you’ve read the author.
– Obsessed – Read 20 novels 2nd in a series or second time you’ve read the author.
I’m aiming for Obsessed again. I have about 30 of these in my to-read-pile, so I shouldn’t have any problems completing this one.
