Truth in Fiction Challenge

January 1, 2012 to December 31, 2012

  • The Details:
    Challenge runs from 01/01/12 - 12/31/2012
  • Goal:  read a specified number of book pairs that are comprised of one fiction book and one related non-fiction book.  Think outside of the box; the non-fiction book could also be journals, letters, memoirs, etc.... The pairs needn't be exact matches, although there should be an easily detectable common thread.  Overlapping with other challenges is fine.
  • The catch:   Instead of individual reviews, after each book pair write a joint review.  For example, if I read The Bell Jar  by Sylvia Plath and then The Journals of Sylvia Plath then my review post will be focused on both books. 
  • Levels:
    • Freshman:  1 pair
    • Sophomore: 2 pairs
    • Junior: 3 pairs
    • Senior: 4 pairs
    • Masters: 5 pairs
    • PhD: 6 pairs
    • Professor:  7 pairs
  • Interested?  Hit me up on Mr. Linky!  Write a post (with or without a book list) or leave me a comment with which level you'll be aspiring to complete.
