Two 2016 Reading Events

I am sharing information today on two 2016 reading events I just heard about, in case anyone else is interested. One is a read-along the other is a challenge. I find these events instructive as well as fun to do and a good way to share with others our mutual reading interests.

They have scheduled 11 specific books to be read one a month, with the 12th a suggested title or one of your choice related to Laura Ingalls Wilder. I plan to participate in one of the months, but I am not sure which one at this moment.

The second event is a Reading New England Challenge hosted by Emerald City Book Review. From the website:

Reading New England, a year-long challenge intended to draw attention to the wonderful writers and books of the six New England states, along with publishers, booksellers, literary locations, and more. Each month will have a special focus, and readers will be encouraged to choose books from those twelve categories if they wish, but there are no requirements other than to read at least one title that falls within the general theme.littlewomen

 I will definitely participate in the whole of this one as I am doing a Louisa May Alcott year with the Women’s Classic Literature Event.

Hope to see you at one of these!
