What is Ye Olde Book Club?
My consistent challenge that I try to maintain with Darkcargo is to ask readers to continue to pick up other genres, and especially those older books that have won like them Pullitzer Prize-ums and stuff like that. ;) It’s important to me to continue to read what is globally considered to be the best in fiction in order to better understand my favorite genre (SF/F).
This Choose Your Own Adventure this year. Maybe you’ll read one. Maybe you’ll read 12. Maybe you’ll hate all of them, maybe you’ll never read SF/F again. I dunno, it’s your challenge this year. You tell me!
I’ve put a page up here on Darkcargo listing those bloggers who think they might enjoy doing this, plus their suggested titles. I like the titles list because it gives us ideas of what might be enjoyable to read.
