I had a thought, you see Chic Lit has become one of my new Fav Genres. Goes up there with my lovely Historicals. I know we are into the year now..but. It wouldnt be hard to come up with maybe.. 5 challenge to do with chic lit..

 

Would anyone be interested in a 2009 Chic lit challenge? I would be happy to create it.

I would be interested to hear what you have in mind. I have a ton of books that are sitting in Mt. TBR that I have promised myself that I need to get to this year. I'm up for just about anything.

This sounds like a great idea to me! I have books on Mt. TBR since I started on PBS (last summer). For some reason, new books always look more interesting to me!

Sounds good to me. I think I already own books to cover all of these categories. Should we post what we plan to read or are reading for this challenge somewhere here in the forum?
