The more I think about it, the more I realize I was crazy to expect anyone to read 20 books for one challenge. So I'm wondering if any of you have actually done that? If any of you have, then we'll stick with it for this year. If not, then I'm going to make a change for this year which will maybe make it possible for more of us to reach that level.
If you've reached 20 books for the challenge for this year, will you please shoot me an email at litandlifeATgmailDOTcom?
Books played a big part in the television show "The Gilmore Girls." Rory was an avid reader. When Rory and Lorelai were going to Europe, Rory wanted to bring 12 books. Mind you, she was carrying everything in a backpack. Recently, a friend sent me a link to an episode-by-episode listing of all of the books seen, read, or mentioned in the series and the idea for a challenge was born. The good news is that there should be something in this for everyone. Rory and company read everything from Homer to Dan Brown and poetry to social commentary. The challenge will officially run from January 1, 2010 through December 31, 2010. You can begin reading now and anything that you're not more than half way through right now can be counted. Crossover books from other challenges are allowed. A lot of the books on the list have also been made into movies and those will count as well. Audio books also count.
