The Well-Seasoned Reader Challenge
I would LOVE to know how you can write a post and date it for 2 months in advance.
BUT this is another challenge I want to participate in. It is an offshoot from the Armchair Travellers Challenge that was so successful in 2007. This is a nice short challenge - just read 3 books in 3 months - and it overlaps my Food Challenge.
Here's how it works:
Rule #1: The challenge runs from January 1 to March 31. (No cheating and starting before!)
Rule #2: You must read three books. After that, it's up to you how much you want to read.
Rule #3: The books must:
have a food name in the title
be about cooking/eating
have a place name in the title
be about one (or more) person's travel experience
be about a specific culture
be by an author whose ethnicity is other than your own
I'll leave it up to you to choose how the three books you read fit the criteria.
Rule #4: They must be middle-grade on up, but can be either fiction or non-fiction.
The purpose, this winter, is to take yourself someplace out of the ordinary, to go on a literary trip, whether that be challenging your expectations, discovering a new place, or enjoying the experience of reading about good food, places, and people.
