You may recall I was on the fence about buying the whole set of Melville House Publishing’s Art of the Novella series. 42 volumes (not 37 like I thought). I thought I was safely past feeling like I needed to have the complete set when Frances comes along and throws fuel on the fire. Next thing you know it my Paypal password is being entered and 42 books and tote bag are now winging their way my direction.
Crazy Frances (that is her new name) has created a reading challenge to read as many of the Art of the Novella series as possible in the month of August. She plans to read all 42! I am going to join her challenge, but I think I am only going to shoot for 9 during August–which puts me at the level of “Passionate”. I am not sure I can make it up one more notch to the 15-novella “Mesmerized” level. Because of course I plan to read other things that month as well.
And Frances notes that the good folks at Melville are sponsoring prizes for those who participate.
