Year of the Book

This group has become officially dormant. It happens. If you want to revive this group, or create a new group on the same topic see this page.

A group for people interested in following a Chinese-year adventure in reading.

The challenge is to read at least one book each month themed on the animal of the year. It will be much easier in some years than in other years, so if you can't find a book with a major character involved, a minor character or object (such as a monkey statue or stuffed animal) will do. And if the struggle means you find a children's picture book about the animal and read that, it's perfectly okay, so long as you post your experience in the search, discovery and reading of your book.

The twelve animals are:
2012 - Dragon
2013 - Snake
2014 - Horse
2015 - Sheep
2016 - Monkey
2017 - Rooster
2018 - Dog
2019 - Pig
2020 - Rat
2021 - Ox
2022 - Tiger
2023 - Rabbit
