Reading Challenge

I signed up for @jenforbus ‘s Criminal Plots Reading Challenge.

If you’ve already signed up, too, super. If not, I won’t tell you what to do, but it does sound like fun.

The link’s above, but in case you can’t or won’t make with the clicky, here are the rules:

Rules of the Road:

So, what’s involved in this challenge you ask? It isn’t too difficult. It involves reading six books throughout 2011 (January 1 through December 31, 2011). One book should be read that fits into each of the following categories:

  1. A book by a new to you author who’s blurbed a book you enjoyed. So check out the cover of a crime fiction book you’ve enjoyed and see who blurbed that book and is also an author you’ve never read before.
  2. A book that has been made into a movie. It doesn’t have to be a movie you’ve seen but it can be. The book, however, should be one you haven’t read before. (Examples: MYSTIC RIVER, L.A. CONFIDENTIAL, LONDON BOULEVARD, HOSTAGE, etc.)
  3. A book with a protagonist opposite your own gender. So if you’re female, the protagonist should be male; if you’re male the protagonist should be female.
  4. A book set outside the country in which you live.
  5. A book that’s the first in a new-to-you series.
  6. A book by a 2011 debut author.

If you want the rest of the details or you want to join the fun, head over to the Challenge Blog Post.

Happy Reading!
