Nonsuch Book, I am joining another challenge. I can't help it - the books involved are going to be such good reads that I know I have to at least attempt to read a few of them. Frances, on the other hand is going to read all of them - that means she will be reading 42 novellas during the month of August and blogging about it (that comes to a book or two a day)! Talk about a voracious reader! So, after Melville House Publishing (they publish these books) found out about the challenge, they created this challenge around Frances' idea of reading all 42 novellas - how cool is that!?!
Anyhow, here are the details:
1. Anyone can join, you don’t need a blog to participate.
2. Read the books in any order you like.
3. Challenge begins August 1 and ends August 31.
4. Here are the levels:
Curious – Read 1 novella
Fascinated — Read 3 novellas
Captivated – Read 6 novellas
Passionate — Read 9 novellas
Mesmerized – Read 15 novellas
Obsessed – Read 21 novellas
Fanatical – Read 27 novellas
Unstoppable — Read 33 novellas
Bibliomaniac — Read all 42 novellas
5. Prizes! Melville House will be giving away sets of The Duels, The Neversink Library, Melville International Crime, individual novellas, novella sets, Bartleby bags, Bartleby bags stuffed full of books, gift certificates to our website and much much more. The prizes will get better everyday.
6. Have Fun!
I'm not sure yet, how many of these novellas I'll be reading, but I do know that I can't wait to start this challenge and I look forward to reading everyone's thoughts on these books! Hope you decide to join in on the fun!
