Like many of you, I've kind of dropped the ball on participating in challenges lately. I no longer enjoy the pressure of "having" to read with specific deadlines. And I find that I'm hesitant to commit to anything! So I understand that many of you are probably in the same boat.
However, I wanted to remind you that there is a fun challenge out there that is pressure-free. It's the The Reagan Arthur Books Challenge, hosted by Kathy of Bermudaonion's Weblog and me. This challenge is a perpetual challenge which means NO PRESSURE! The goal is simply to read the Reagan Arthur books that look good to you. There are no numbers, time limits, or basically any steadfast rules.
For those of you who aren't familiar with Reagan Arthur Books, it's an imprint of Little, Brown and Company, and it's goal is "to give readers what they want most: the unique and lasting
pleasure of sitting alone with a good book, being moved and entertained
and even changed forever."
Reagan Arthur has published a wide variety of quality books over the past few years. Some past books that I have really enjoyed are BOSSYPANTS by Tina Fey, THE 500 by Matthew Quirk, and THE LIFEBOAT by Charlotte Regan. There is also a fantastic book coming out soon that I can hardly wait for called LIFE AFTER LIFE by Kate Atkinson.
