Year of the Fantasy Classic
Host: KMont from Lurv a la Mode
Challenge: Determine a number of fantasy books to read and then read them in 2012.
My goal: Read 6 fantasy novels in 2012.
Time Frame: January 1 to December 31, 2012
I am signing up for this reading challenge for three distinct reasons.
I lurv the challenge graphic.
I lurv KMont.
I lurv fantasy fiction.
It seems I love the fantasy books I read, but oddly enough... I don't actively seek those books out as often as I should. This challenge will hopefully encourage and inspire me to be more consistent with that in 2012.
All excellent reasons to do this challenge, right? Why not join us?
