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.
