Just Another Reading Challenge

Just when you thought you were safe right, and I just returned home from the library unscathed from picking up any more books then I can possibly handle, the wonderful and funny Deanna at HarperCollins Canada has posted a new reading challenge.  This is how it works:

This is the called the IMPAC Reading Challenge – Since there are many HarperCollins books on the list, go and read say 6 of them between now and April 14th (that is when the shortlist is announced) you will have a chance to win a really awesome prize pack – 10 Harper books of YOUR choosing !

So, if you have read any of these books before, THEY DO NOT COUNT!  But, there are still some really great titles, As I have already placed holds on three of them…Can you say Addict ?!?!

Alaa Al Aswany, Chicago
Louis Bayard, The Black Tower – My review
José Rodrigues dos Santos, Codex 632
Louise Erdrich, The Plague of Doves
Richard Flanagan, Wanting
Jeffrey Ford, The Shadow Year
Hilary Jordan, Mudbound
Dennis Lehane, The Given Day – My Review
James Meek, We Are Now Beginning Our Descent
Donna Milner, After River
Tom Piazza, City of Refuge
Ross Raisin, Out Backward (God’s Own Country)
Ron Rash, Serena
Marilynn Robinson, Home – My Review
Garth Stein, The Art of Racing in the Rain – My Review
Neal Stephenson, Anathem – My Review
Christos Tsiolkas, The Slap
Tim Winton, Breath – My Review

Now, once you are done reading one or all six make sure you email Deanna at deanna.mcfadden(AT)harpercollins(DOT)com to let her know that you have read, adored, tweeted, stumbled upon, Facebook it (basically where ever you talked about it online) so she can keep count, and you will be well on your way for a chance to win some great books ! Or, just go the The Savvy Reader to read some more about it
