Anyone interested in a reading challenge game using the books listed in the 1001 book list - only the ones published in the 21st century (about 100 including the additions in the new edition)? 

Reading required = 12 books in 24 weeks

writing required -your own book reviews - not the ones available on the internet -

You will need to order 6 books of the 12 and mail them to others after reading and reviewing them.

 

Send me a message if interested  - so I can see if we get the required number of participants to start the game.

I'd go for that. I've never done one of these games before but it sounds fun, and as a literature major I probably should read some of 'em!

I am curious about the 101 books titles and have also never done a game.  I would like to sign up.

Link is not working. says no books tagged "1001 bks"

I cut and pasted this link from a thread in CMT

http://www.listology.com/list/1001-books-you-must-read-you-die

There's 69 published in the 21st century, and 700+ in the 20th. Is this what you mean?
