Award-Winning Reading Challenge

I am so excited to announce that I will be participating in the

I figured it's about time that I actually read some of the books off the award lists (okay, other than the Newbery and Caldecott, because I read books off those lists all the time). This challenge allows me to pick and choose from when off which list I read, just the way I like it.

For this challenge, I will be doing a Full Frontal, with a little Genre Buster and Extra Credit thrown in (because I'm a hopeless overachiever).

Full Frontal:
You are not fucking around here—you want to read the best and the brightest, and a lot of them, even if it kills you. Your challenge is to read:

Genre Buster:
Hey, there are other awards besides literary awards. Read one book from each of the following lists:

Extra Credit:
Read one book from these random-ass awards that we found around the internet. This particular challenge may be subject to change as we find more oddball awards, but when/if I update, I’ll include the date so that you know if they were part of your original challenge or not:
I have not chosen a first book yet, because I need to spend a little time with these lists. Needless to say, I will be continuing to blog about my choices, and encourage you to sign up for this reading challenge, too.


  1. Damn, you're going full frontal on this one? On top of all of the other challenges for 2012? Good luck!

  2. And where the hell are the Edgar awards represented on this list, anyway? :)
