Just for the Love of It Reading Challenge

January 1, 2009 at 4:34 am | Posted in Books | 7 Comments

Because I couldn’t help myself because this challenge is so wonderful, I’m joining Bethany, Shana and Alyce in Sheri’s Just for the Love of It Reading Challenge.  What’s nice about this is that it only lasts from January through April, making the first four months of the year time to focus on reading the things that you love.  Here are the rules:

This will really test my resolve, especially the part about accepting books from publishers, publicists and authors that I’m “truly intersted in.”  I’ve definitely gotten beter since my ARC crisis hit me full force.  This will be a test to see how long I can keep my resolve.  Here is the list of books I’ll be reading thus far:

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button by F. Scott Fitzgerald
America America by Ethan Canin
Charity Girl by Georgette Heyer
The Dress Lodger by Sheri Holman
The King’s Daughter by Sandra Worth
The Uncommon Reader by Alan Bennett
Twilight by Stephanie Meyer
Love Walked In by Marisa de los Santos
False Colours by Georgette Heyer

  1. Great list!

  2. Good luck with the challenge and Happy New Year!

  3. Hey, Jennifer, I’m glad you’re joining us! This is gonna be fun. I can’t wait to read your thoughts on the first book on your list. Are you waiting to see the movie?
    Yes. I’m hoping to finish the short story today and then see the movie tomorrow. It’s going to be part of my informal series of reading the books and seeing the movies associated with the best adapted screenplay Oscar nominations. I’m assuming that this and Revolutionary Road will be included. If not, I’ll read some great books and see some great movies. 🙂

  4. Just stopping by to say Happy New Year! Glad you joined the challenge too.

  5. Yippee!

  6. Happy New Year and have fun with your challenge…I might just partipate in this one since it overlaps with the APOOO First Quarter Challenge.
    I’ll have to check out your first quarter challenge. If I really enjoy this, I just might have to develop one of my own.

  7. […] and Tomato Girl. My Lady of Cleves and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button are both books off of my Just for the Love of It Reading Challenge. Because I’ve also joined the January is ARC Reading Month, I will be reading ARCs the rest […]
