Fill in the Gaps: a reading challenge
The Fill in the Gaps 100 books blog is a site where bloggers from all over are keeping up with a 5-year challenge. Each blogger has made a list of 100 books that s/he will read between now and the early part of 2015. Everyone has chosen his/her own list, and the blog just serves as a sort of meeting point where the bloggers keep up with what has been read so far.
Anyone is welcome to join the project, and it is just as simple as sending an email to the administrator and then posting your list. Several of the bloggers have made good progress on their lists, while others are moving along at a slower pace. There are no requirements on how to go about this, so it is all good.
The idea is to create a list of 100 books that are not already slated to be read for work, school, or whatever, and try to finish them over the next 5 years. Some will probably have no problem doing this. Others will struggle. A lot will probably drop out altogether.
It's a fun site, with lots of good recommendations and reviews of books coming up as bloggers finish the various titles on their lists. If you would like to join the challenge, it is easy to do so. If you would just like to pop in and see what everyone is reading (and recommending), that's a lot of fun too.
