War & Peace Challenge
I'm not sure if I'm going to be able to keep up with this, and I definitely won't be starting until the end of the month because I have two books on the go in addition to two magazines (TIME, National Geographic) which I'd like to finish. Work will probably be really busy this month as well, so we'll see when I can get around to it. Anyways, there will probably be prizes which I think will make it fun. I'm toying with an idea where everyone brings in a 're-gifted book' and winners get to choose from a pile of books in some sort of order. I've been thinking of creating some interesting awards like:
"Fastest Procratinator" [for those that leave most of the reading until the last month] or
"Skimmer Extroardinare" [someone who doesn't really 'READ' the book, but just skims through it]
...or whatever. Would love to hear some suggestions on awards and please leave a comment if you're also planning on reading 'War & Peace' this year, whether part of a challenge or otherwise.

I just bought it today. I fear signing up for either of the book blogging community War and Peace challenges this year that I'm aware of, though. If I "fail" I'd hate to have a public record of my "shame"... :-)
I didn't know that it was a perfect year-long read... that's really interesting. If I think about it, I may try to start that this week. It'd be nice to say that I've read War & Peace, even if it takes a whole year to get through it!
Just hopping by from the Blogger Hop. Hope you have a great reading week.
