Montgomery Mini-Challenge


This mini-challenge is hosted by Maria. The challenge is to read FOUR books by L.M. Montgomery. The challenge is January 1, 2009 through November 30, 2009. There’s a catch–they can’t be any of her Anne books. (A catch I’m fine with, by the way, since I read those eight books this fall!!!) I’m not exactly sure which four I’ll be reading yet…but this is my tentative list:

Emily Climbs
Emily’s Quest
Blue Castle
A Tangled Web

Sci-Fi Experience


I got a big thrill today when I noticed that Carl has posted about 2009’s Sci-Fi Experience!!! This is the non-challenge challenge all about taking pleasure in science fiction. This one is all about finding those satisfying reads in a genre that I personally love. There are no set number of required books. It’s not a challenge in that sense. Just an invitation to enjoy yourself.
This ‘experience’ begins January 1, 2009 and ends February 28, 2009. Visit his site to sign up yourself. Reviews will be posted on the review site’s Mr. Linky.
