This was an interesting post in my google reader this afternoon, a friendly competition in reading. While I am not the fastest or most prolific reader, I do think I can stand my ground with some of my family and friends. So, if you're up for it – leave a comment take up the challenge. We'll work something out and crown a winner in December 2009.
Here's my first one, I Love You, Beth Cooper by Larry Doyle, as recommended by Josh and Kevin. And as I start this "exhibition" (it's not a ""competition" until someone joins in, right?), I vow to focus on unfinished books in my bookcases at least until Easter. The last time I resolved to do that, I made it to April before running out of good reads.
Take a photo of your book, doesn't count until you've finished it and posted, and tie-breaker will be number of pages read. How's that? Join in if you'd like – or not, and watch me have a pathetic "competition with myself"… the choice is yours.
UPDATE - So far, here are our contestants:
