Several weeks ago I was musing on pairs of books, namely fiction books paired with a related non-fiction book. You can read all about that bookish musing here. Once I started thinking of fiction and non-fiction pairings I simply couldn't help myself. I had to make a challenge.
I present to you the TRUTH IN FICTION CHALLENGE!
Challenge runs from 01/01/12 - 12/31/2012
Goal: read a specified number of book pairs that are comprised of one fiction book and one related non-fiction book. Think outside of the box; the non-fiction book could also be journals, letters, memoirs, etc.... The pairs needn't be exact matches, although there should be an easily detectable common thread. Overlapping with other challenges is fine.
The catch: Instead of individual reviews, after each book pair write a joint review. For example, if I read The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath and then The Journals of Sylvia Plath then my review post will be focused on both books.
Freshman: 1 pair
Sophomore: 2 pairs
Junior: 3 pairs
Senior: 4 pairs
Masters: 5 pairs
PhD: 6 pairs
Professor: 7 pairs
Interested? Leave a comment and with a URL to a post (with or without a book list) or leave me a comment with which level you'll be aspiring to complete. (EDIT: I had a Mr. Linky up and it was giving me fits, so we're back to leaving comments).
