My new year Challenges!!!!!!!!!!

New Year, New resolutions and New challenges!!! For book lovers like me, New “Reading” challenges, of course.... It’s raining challenges & what gratification in joining the bandwagon!! This will be my first attempt at reading challenges so I hope to have lot of fun & some good reviews along the way!!!

IQRC 2013

According to her, “The Indian literary scene is under bombardment...”. So when a fellow book blogger (and a good one at that!!!), Reshmy Pillai of The Tales Pensieve came up with this unique Reading Challenge that gives an impetus to the Indian authors I could not resist...

As the name suggests, under this reading challenge, I have to read books authored by any writer of Indian Origin. Suits me, as I plan to do a LOT of that!!! I will start with a modest number of reading & reviewing 12 books under this challenge. Seems meagre, but once I get a gist of these challenges, I can always upgrade!!! :-)
So treating myself with some excessive indulgence (for reading obviously!!!), I am going for this interesting reading challenge too. This one is by one of the most amazing bloggers - Debdatta Dasgupta Sahay of b00k r3vi3ws and quite simple at that. Under this reading challenge, I have to pick up reads by authors whom I have never read before...Seems like we can have some fun along with some experiments!!!

Since, I am taking baby steps in the “Reading Challenges” arena, I will go with the I choose Amateur Level, which means I will be reading 10 books by authors I have never read before....


So Ladies & Gents.....let the Reading begin!!!!! :-)
