Searching for...

Thursday, 4 December 2014


I've discovered this next 2015 Reading Challenge
is impossible to resist.  
My reading preferences have proved to situate themselves squarely in England.  
This will challenge me to greater awareness as I  
 note the book's county setting within England.

Thanks to our lovely Brit host of the Challenge at Behold the Stars,
many counties have been listed [along with corresponding book options] 
which definitely encourages a wide range of reading and an
increased familiarity with a fav location of mine .
Signup remains open throughout 2015, should you be another 
reading fan of England.
Visit the above link for all the details.
They're generously open - the very encouragement needed for me to take on
another challenge for this year of 2015.

I am torn. I saw this challenge and also loved the book suggestions based on the counties. I think I'm at RC saturation for now, but this will be one of the first I add if I decide to do more.

I'll be very interested to follow your progress. Go get 'em, girl! :O)

I love the idea of a reading challenge, but I know I could never find the time to read a lot. But I do need to commit to reading more than I did this past year.
