The basic idea of this challenge is to read books about GLBT topics and/or by GLBT authors. The challenge runs year-round as usual, but instead of requiring a certain number of books, this year I’m handling this challenge in a more do-it-yourself sort of fashion. You set your own goal. It doesn’t matter if that goal is 1 book, 10 books, a percentage of your books, or to read from various age groups/genres. Your goal is completely up to you. Design this the way you want. Make it work for you. The important thing here is simply to get us reading GLBT lit. You don’t need to choose your books right away, and they can change at any time. Overlaps with other challenges are fine.
Well, unsurprisingly this sounds like a challenge that is right up my street. Now since I read alot of GLBT literature to start with I am planning on reading ones that I have not read before and I am aiming for 10-20 books throughout the year.
Initially I have the following on my TBR pile that I am going to commit to reading:
Garden, Nancy Lark in the morning
Good, Melissa Storm Surge
Hill, Gerri In the name of the Father
Lo, Melinda Ash
I have a moohoosive wishlist which has a multitude of GLBT fiction on it, however success of reading those is based primarily upon ability to actually get hold of them and that is why they are on my wishlist in the first place. That said, I will add books as I acquire or actually read them that are pertinent to this challenge as and when.
