The Art of the Novella Reading Challenge

You know Frances?  That really cool girl over at Nonsuch Book?  She had a good idea for a challenge.  And when she let some people who might be interested know about it, they agreed it was a good idea.  And they totally got on board and made a pretty picture (see above) and even added prizes.  And now, I am considering getting involved.  What do you think?  Should I make August the month of the novella?  I don't have any of these pretty editions currently, but I'm pretty sure I can make something happen. 

If you could read that list at right, you would see some good titles, only a few of which I've read before.  Any recommendations?  The Country of Pointed Firs has been on my list for awhile, but I don't have any particular leanings otherwise.

While we're on the subject of challenges, I plan to return to my TPR Challenge soon.  It has languished of late, and I am definitely ready to remedy that.  Perhaps I will participate in Paris in July again and use the month to make some real headway.  So many plans, so many books....


  1. Yes! Thrilled that you might read along. And know that you will read more than you originally planned once you start. They are novellas after all. :)

  2. I do like the short form, so I'm interested to see how much I'll get read. I haven't officially "registered" with my level of interest, but I think I'm at last captivated. :)

  3. I'm definitely going to try the challenge, glad there will be other 'bibliomaniacs' out there with me.
