Moby Lives is hosting the one month challenge, The Art of the Novella Reading Challenge. They write:
We recently got an email telling us something astonishing.
Frances Evangelista of the Nonsuch Book blog, told us that she is going to attempt the seemingly impossible: read all 42 titles in the Art of the Novella series during the month of August and write reviews of every one on her literary blog.
More than one book & review per day for an entire month! We can’t wait to see if she can pull it off.
In the spirit of Frances’ remarkable reading marathon we’re launching The Art of the Novella Reading Challenge.
