This challenge, National Just Read More Novels Month (or NaJuReMoNoMo)has been offered for five years and this is my 4th year to participate. Celebrated every January, it is devoted to the appreciation of fiction. You can go here to visit FOMA, the host of this challenge and to view the official rules. I will post them here as well:
*Must Be A Novel. Works of fiction only, please. Memoirs, non-fiction, how-to books, and Doonesbury collections, no matter how thick, don't count, no matter how obviously fictional.
*Memoirs Aren't Novels. No matter how made up the story, anything ostensibly true isn't a novel. This used to be known as The James Frey Rule, but is now called the Decision Point.
*Start and Finish in January. I guess if you got some cool books for Christmas, Hanukkah or some other gift-giving event and jumped the gun, you can't be blamed. But I only count books I start and finish within the 31 day window.
*Re-reading Doesn't Count. Try something new. Read something by your favorite author or try an entirely new author. This is a great chance to cut down on the height of the nightstand stack.
*Have Fun. Nobody is grading you or paying you or judging you. Read what you like and like what you read.
