I ve want to run a reading challenge and nearly did but backed out now I have a challenge I love and hope you will love and spread for me .
THE VILLAGE READING CHALLENGE –
The challenge is reading books set in villages ,some of my firm favourites past and present have been set in villages this covers all genres and styles .From Christie’s Miss Marple ,Wyndham Midwich cuckoos ,Barbel stones in a landslide to Momples african Village .Villages make great source material and no matter where seem to have somethings in common ,they are a snapshot of their country or area ,but also you see the same characters occur over different books in different pl,aces the nosey old women ,the man with the straying eye ,the naughty child etc .I plan the challenge to run from March 1st 2011 – march first 2012 .
