I'll Read Yours if You'll Read Mine
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.
karenmarie read the description of The Rapture of Canaan “and can never imagine myself reading it. Sorry, but there it is.”
CharlesBoyd has hesitated to read Kurt Vonnegut for years “because I’ve suspected his novels are pretty weird.”
So what did we do? We each agreed to read a book we suspected we would hate.
Here’s the thread that we created to track our experiment. The Reading Books We Don't Think We'll Like Challenge - karenmarie and CharlesBoyd
Now it’s your turn to get out of your comfort zone.
Post a thread in this group with your username and something like “looking for a challenge”. You can include a genre or author or style of book that you hate (or at least dislike or avoid) or just leave it that you’re looking for a challenge. Invite someone to take you up on your challenge or let someone pick you. Use this thread to figure out what book each of you will read.
Then post your Challenge thread here. Include both your names and the word Challenge somewhere in it, since we’ll probably have two types of threads.
The challenge threads should have something about why you each agreed to read a book you think you’ll hate.
Then, it’s up to you! You can make as many personal rules as you want or let the thread develop on the fly. It would be nice for the rest of us if you post some progress and thoughts about your book and then either a review or discussion of why you hated or (surprisingly) liked the book.
Have fun! Be challenged!
