Some of you may have wondered if I was done signing up for reading challenges for 2012. And the answer is no. Even though I have committed myself to reading ten novels by Dickens and War and Peace I decided why not join a few more. One of those challenges is hosted by Gathering Books. They are sponsoring an Award Winning Books Reading Challenge. You can read adult, children’s, and young adult award-winning novelists for this challenge. I haven’t decided on all of the novels that I will read. Fortunately for me, the books can overlap with other reading challenges. I will be attempting level 1, there are four levels, which means I will try to read ten books or less. So far I’m considering:
- Foundation by Isaac Asimov—this is the first in the series and the series won the Hugo Award for Best All-Time Series in 1966
- The Illuminatus! Trilogy by Robert Shea and Robert Anton Wilson—In 1986 it won the Prometheus Hall of Fame Award
I will be adding more books to this list hopefully.
