The challenge is to read books that have won awards. Books can be of any genre and age, but I’ll most likely be focusing on adult novels, with the possible occasional YA.
I’m going to stick with Level 1 for the moment, which consists of reading up to 10 books. There’s a fair chance that I’ll increase this as I go, but for now I’m going to stick with what I know I can handle.
As far as reading ideas, I know for sure that I’d definitely like to read:
- “The Dispossessed,” by Ursula K. Le Guin, which won both the Hugo and Nebula awards for science fiction
- “The Wood Wife,” by Terri Windling, which won the Mythopoeic Award
I’d like to try to focus on fantasy/sci-fi awards, but I do plan on branching out a bit. One of the neat things about this challenge is that it gives me an excuse to learn more about the variety of book awards that are out there.
