Six Books in Six Weeks Challenge

Lauren at Little Wonder's Recommended Reading is hosting a series of shorter reader challenges which she is calling Six Books in Six Weeks. She writes:
A lot of really neat reading challenges are out there that last a whole year -- but what if you want to tackle something a little... smaller?

I am starting what will (hopefully) turn in to a series of shorter reading challenges, with a simple idea -- each will involve reading (at least) six books on the same theme or subject over the course of six weeks.

I will announce the theme and dates at least a month in advance so that you have time to decide what books to read and then get your hands on them.

If you want to participate, email the following information to : your name, your blog (if you have one) and your list of six (or more) books
Current Six Books in Six Weeks Challenge:

Six Books from Another Country
February 27 - April 9, 2011

In order to participate in the first Six Books in Six Weeks Reading Challenge, you must choose six books from a single country other than the United States or England. You are free to read six books from Canada or other parts of the U.K. besides England, such as Ireland or Scotland. You may also fudge it and choose six books from a region -- for example six books from Ireland/Scotland, or six books from a couple of different African countries. Please also note: the books can be from any genre, and do not have to be Young Adult Lit (although all of mine are, this time around).

Potential reading lists may be found at this page:
