The Challenge Specifics

The 2013 Year-Long Memoir Reading Challenge

  • What is a "year-long memoir" anyway?

    My definition of a year-long memoir is a memoir in which the author has undertaken some task or goal or virtue to pursue for an entire year, then written a book about his or her experience.
  • Why a reading challenge?

    Why not? I like a good challenge.
  • What are the "rules" of the challenge?

    1. Choose memoirs to read.
    2. Read them.
    3. Write a short review or your own reflective piece on what you read.
  • Who can join in?

    Anyone! Just let me know if you're interested, email me or leave a comment, and I can add you to this blog. It's a group effort.
  • Do I have to have my own blog for this challenge?

    Nope. Just a Google or Blogger account for me to add you.
  • How many books are allowed? Is there a minimum?

    No. You can set a goal to read from 1 to 500...
  • Can I join this group blog?

    Yes you can! Do you have to? Not if you don't want to.
  • What if I want to read a memoir that isn't a "year-long" memoir?

    I don't mind, as long as it's a memoir or autobiography.
