I love the idea of a book challenge: a group of people deciding to read a certain type of book. I am horrible though at follow through. Luckily, Carl at Stainless Steel Droppings has levels of commitment for his challenges. I will be participating in The Journey. That just means I will read one book that falls into the challenge requirements before Midsummer. Read the about the challenge here. This, along with R.I.P., hosted at the same site, are my favorites of the year.
