New Challenge - Books about Books

I just picked up a novel at another sale table today - called The Shadow of the Wind, by Carlos Ruiz Zafon. Originally from Barcelona, he now lives in Los Angeles. This novel is about a book. I LOVE books about books - whether they be fiction or non-fiction, and there are plenty of them out there. And I am enjoying this book very much.

So I've decided to host a small challenge - Read 3 books about books from October 1st to December 31st. Fiction or Non fiction, I dont mind. Just read back through my blog, you'll find lots of ideas for titles. Crossovers are fine.

Here's the Blog for this Challenge. I'm calling it BIBLIOGRAPHY challenge. I LOVE that word!!! LOL

And since I am reading Shadow of the Wind right now, in September, I'm gonna make this book, my first book for the Books Around the World Challenge since it's set in Barcelona (Europe).

Oh! This challenge looks way too tempting! I don't think I can resist. And I didn't realize the Books Around the World challenge had started! I thought it was still in planning stages.

I loved Shadow on the Wind when I read it!

Books around the World has no specific dates. Its for whatever dates you choose.

My original post said I would start after I came back from the hospital. That was 6 weeks ago, so I figured, it's time to start.

Awesome! I was at the library yesterday and came across a book that I decided not to get, but wanted to, because my bag was already overloaded. It's called "How to Read a Novel" by someone or other. Now I think shall go back and get it for your challenge!

I'll write back when I have reviews!

I posted my first review for the Bibliography Challenge.

Historia said...

One of the things about a Book challenge is to be able to wait until the start date. LOL

The Bibliography challenge starts OCtober 1st. Sorry.
