Around The Stacks In How Many Ways Book Challenge – My Chosen 16 Genres
So after much deliberation I have finally chosen 16 genres, and 16 books, that I wish to explore for the Around The Stacks In How Many Ways 2012 Book Challenge that myself and Dog Ear Discs are hosting.
My reasons for choosing the books I have are either because I wanted to choose a ‘classic’ that I thought fully encapsulated the chosen genre, or because it’s a book I’ve had on my bookcase for sometime to read but just haven’t quite got to yet! Though please note, even though I have selected 16, I may not have time to read each one, despite how much I’d like to – but I’m definitely going to try my hardest!
