Memorable Memoirs Reading Challenge 2011


Melissa at Betty and Boo Chronicles is hosting this challenge at http://bettyboochronicles.blogspot.com/

I want to read at least one memoir this year. One of my goals is to read more of a variety of books. :)


We're back again for the second year! I'm delighted to be your host of the Memorable Memoirs Reading Challenge for 2011, complete with a spiffed-up perpetual button made by the wonderful Florinda of The 3Rs (Reading, 'Riting, and Randomness). A round of applause for Florinda ....

About the Challenge:
If you enjoy reading memoirs or really haven't explored them as much as you'd like to, then this is the challenge for you. Anything that in your mind qualifies as a memoir will meet the challenge requirements. Letters, diaries, autobiographies, books on writing memoirs ... in my book, they all count as Memorable Memoirs. Books, e-books, audiobooks are all fine.

Dates: January 1 - December 31, 2011. You can sign up anytime from now and throughout 2011, but don't start reading until January 1, 2011.

Requirements: It's up to you! I want this to be a fun and low-key challenge, yet one that will be worthwhile of your valuable reading time. If that means reading one memoir, that's great. If that means reading three dozen, even better. You decide what works for you. Overlaps with other challenges are more than fine ... even encouraged. :)

Write a post (or include your intention to participate in this along with other challenges) on your blog (if you don't have a blog, you can just leave a comment). Tell us how many Memorable Memoirs you're planning on reading. You don't need to list your books in advance, but if you want to, we'd love to see which ones you're thinking about. You can always change them later. (I'll create a list of possibilities based on some of my own memoir reading and that which participants did last year.)
