Most of my posts during the past week or two have been to line up Reading Challenges for the upcoming year. This one is a bit different, as it isn’t a challenge so much as a non-challenge.
The 2012 Science Fiction Experience is hosted by Carl from Stainless Steel Droppings. It runs from the start of January to the end of February. The goal is simply to read and enjoy science fiction novels. The review site for the event can be found here.
This is also well-timed, as I’m in the mood for some sci-fi after the recent release of a new MMORPG that I’m very excited to be playing–Star Wars: The Old Republic. I spent yesterday evening leveling my Twi’lek Sith while watching the original Star Wars trilogy. I am still pretending that Episodes I, II, and III don’t exist, because Darth Vader should not under any circumstances be an emo brat.
Thus far, I have absolutely no idea what I’m planning to read for the Science Fiction Experience. I’d definitely like to read Asimov’s “The Foundation,” which I’ve had for a while now but haven’t read yet. Rumor has it that “The Foundation” will be a group read, which is even better! I’d also like to continue Anne McCaffrey’s trilogy that began with Crystal Singer, because I’m curious about what happens to Killashandra. I’m open to further suggestions, and am planning a library trip when I get back from Christmas break!
