I won’t lie. I haven’t actually started on the challenge this year, not in earnest, anyway. I did look up all the nominated titles in my local library catalog, and I spent some quality time placing holds; I’m planning to delve in as soon as the current craziness dies down and I finish the book I’m reading now.
I have to say, both lists look amazing this year, and I’m excited to get started, especially because a lot of the titles weren’t on my radar at all, though clearly they should have been.
If, like me, you haven’t cracked open a nominated title yet, don’t despair. Check out the guidelines for this year’s reading challenge and make your plan of attack–the Morris finalists look amazing, and the Nonfiction list is awesome. The challenge ends January 27th, which is more than enough time to get serious. I’m starting with Elizabeth Ross’ Belle Epoque and The Nazi Hunters by Neal Bascomb.
What about you?
