Here goes ...You may pick both fiction and non fiction books!
Contrary to last year short story collections, anthologies or collected works in one volume are now allowed!
Re-reads will now also be ok (though preferably you should read one of those unread tomes that have been collecting dust on your shelves)!
Last year you had to read 700+ pages but I reduced this to 650+ for 2013 (and no, this is not further negotiable)!
And as a little incentive - books with more than 1.200 pages will count for two books (so theoretically you can read four such super-chunksters to reach the Sencha Connoisseur level)!
Last but not least - no large print editions of a book, please!
Are you ready? Go ahead and pick your level!2 Books - Chamomile Lover
4 Books - Berry Tea Devotee
6 Books - Earl Grey Aficionado
8 or more Books - Sencha Connoisseur
I went for the level of Berry Tea Devotee: read 4 books and I completed this challenge the 11th of October. In my sign up post I thought I might be able to go a level up later but that has not been possible as I have only read 4 books that were long enough.
My list of books:
- Wild Swans: Three Daughters of China by Jung Chang (660 pages)
- The Well of Ascension by Brandon Sanderson (765 pages)
- Ship of Magic by Robin Hobb (834pages)
- The Witching Hour by Anne Rice (1058pages)
