"Rules of the Road:
So, what's involved in this challenge you ask? It isn't too difficult. It involves reading six books throughout 2011 (January 1 through December 31, 2011). One book should be read that fits into each of the following categories:
1. A book by a new to you author who's blurbed a book you enjoyed. So check out the cover of a crime fiction book you've enjoyed and see who blurbed that book and is also an author you've never read before.
2. A book that has been made into a movie. It doesn't have to be a movie you've seen but it can be. The book, however, should be one you haven't read before. (Examples: MYSTIC RIVER, L.A. CONFIDENTIAL, LONDON BOULEVARD, HOSTAGE, etc.)
3.A book with a protagonist opposite your own gender. So if you're female, the protagonist should be male; if you're male the protagonist should be female.
- The Janus Stone - Elly Griffiths
- Three Seconds - Roslund & Hellstrom
- The Devil's Star - Jo Nesbo
- Lucifer's Tears - James Thompson
- The Mapping of Love and Death - Jacqueline Winspear
5.A book that's the first in a new-to-you series.
