This is the community for National Novel Reading Month. National Novel Writing Month has been going on for many years now. Every November many of us sit down to try to write 50,000 words in 30 days.
This is the readers' side of things. No, we are not affiliated with NaNoWriMo. We're not even being run by the same people. shadowhwk got curious about whether such a thing existed one day, found an old but seemingly defunct group that had tried it once, and decided to pick up the torch again.
We have claimed the month of August for our challenge. From August 1st to August 30th, the goal is to read as many books as you can, where by book we mean: any book, in paperback, hardback or electronic format, that is at least 150 pages in length. Yes, you may re-read books. No, you do not need to review the books, though we welcome them of course. Yes, you may discuss the books you read, ask for recommendations, set up swaps, we don't care.
Just please make sure you clearly label what you're posting about.
