I've been gone a while. I started reading fanfiction to escape and I got sucked in an abyss.

I have no idea if someone else is hosting similar challenges. I just grabbed some of what I have hosted before.

Here's to a happy year of great reading
Jan2023: Not much has changed. Writing a fanfiction now O_o as well as reading but I bought 7 new books in December and hope to get those read soon. Crossing fingers about adding challenges (late!)

Mind Voyages Reading Challenge

Mind Voyages Reading Challenge

hosted by Robin of My Two Blessings at 52 Books in 52 Weeks

There is no real sign up link but more info (and links!) can be found here

Mind Voyages is a science fiction/fantasy challenge to explore the hugo and nebula winners, take side trips through the different decades reading the nominees, check out Philip K. Dick and Robert Heinlein. Also, since I can't possibly imagine a reading challenge without exploring new releases that come out in 2011, we have the all inclusive Pluto challenge.

You really need to read the post to get the full scope of the challenge. One of the hard parts for me will be reading books I haven't read before and/or finding one I want to read! I tried this once before and failed spectacularly, let's try it again for 2013.

I'm going for Pluto and hope to read one from each voyage.

Moon 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.
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.
