I mentioned in a recent review that I plan to read more Fantasy & SciFi books in the coming months, so this challenge is perfect for me.
The details, according to My Two Blessings, are as follows:
Choose a VoyageMoon Voyage : Read at least 6 winners on the Hugo Winners List
Sling shot back to Earth: Read at least 3 winners on the Nebula Winner's List
Venus Voyage: Philip K. Dick Quest - Read at least 2 of his books
Mercury Voyage: Robert Heinlein Quest - Read at least 2 of his books
Mars Voyage: Read at least 6 winners on the Hugo List and take a side trip through the 21st century and read at least 4 nominees.
Go into Warp Drive and visit the other planets ...
Jupiter Voyage: Go side tripping 90's Style
Saturn: Go Side Tripping 80's Style
Uranus: Go Side Tripping 70's Style
Neptune Voyage: Go Side Tripping through the 50's and 60's
The I'm going to Pluto because Pluto is still a planet as far as I'm concerned Voyage: Mix it up, choose the number of books you want to read from each voyage, include some new books you pick up along the way and enjoy the ride.
The Rules are simple:
- The challenge will run from January 1, 2010 through December 31, 2010.
- Participants may join at any time.
- All forms of books are acceptable including e-books, audio books, etc.
- Re-reads are acceptable as long as they are read after January 1, 2010.
- Books may overlap other challenges.
- Create an entry post linking to this blog.
- You don't have to decide before hand what you will be reading.
- Come back and sign up with Mr. Linky in the "I'm participating post".
- You don't have a blog to participate.
- I'll be adding a post with Mr. Linky for participants to post book reviews.
I'm going for the Pluto Voyage because it gives me the most flexibility, especially regarding SciFi/Fantasy books that are not award winners. I'm committing to read 12 books but I'm not deciding now what they are. Some titles I'm considering include:
- Dune - this would be a re-read
- The Left Hand of Darkness
- Ender's Game
- Stranger in a Strange Land
- American Gods
- Little Brother
