BW49: 2012 Readalongs and Events


Hello my darlings!  I am in the midst of working on the site for 2012, revamping the mini challenges so if you see some of the pages disappearing or changing, you'll know why.  If you have any suggestions for a mini challenge or challenge within the challenge, let me know.  

I've come across a few 2012 read-a-longs and events that look interesting.   I just finished reading J.R. Ward's first novel in the Black Dagger Brotherhood series - Dark Lover. If you are into vampires, you'd probably enjoy this one.  I love series and enjoyed it enough to want to read the rest of the series.  Unlike Christine Feehan's Dark series which was just a bit too emotional and ridiculous for me and had me quitting the series after the first couple books.  And it just so happens Literary Escapism is hosting a Black Dagger Brotherhood Read-a-long which will run through the end of March.  

For those who like George R.R. Martin, Adventures of 2.0 will be hosting a Read-a-long of A Game of Thrones, and The Lit Bitch will be hosting A Game of Thrones challenge to read the whole series. 

For those wanting something a bit more seriousness to it,  A Literary Odyssey is hosting Shakespeare Reading Month in January or Breadcrumb Reads group read of  Reading Shakespeare: A Play a Month.

Howling Frog Books (don't you just love that title) will be hosting a Greek Classics Challenge which should fit in nicely with our Well Educated Mind Mini challenge (which unfortunately I totally failed at this year.)

I'll be posting the Mr. Linky Sign up for 2012 in a couple weeks.  Happy Reading!

  2. What a great way to prevent making resolutions that will never be kept on New Year's Eve! Instead, be held accountable, right here! Thanks for the push... And, I jumped in with both feet, listing "classics", easily over the page minimum. Exhale...

  3. I do like read-a-longs, but I am determined to take a break from all challenges in January and then see what appeals to me. I have read more books this year thanks to you--and I found this challenge to be the most challenging challenge I have participated in during the past three years that I have been blogging. Thanks for hosting.
