Lucy Maud Montgomery Reading Challenge - Let's Begin
As I mentioned before I REALLY like Lucy Maud Montgomery. My love for her was birthed when I read the Anne series. I was delighted to discover early on in life that Montgomery wrote a whole host of books and I had reading material for a good few years. At this point in my life I've read everything that Montgomery has ever written excepting one piece of non-fiction that she wrote for a newspaper article and I have not yet read her journals. However, I have the first journal on order and its heading my way! I hope to be reading that during this challenge.
So what is the plan for today?
1. Link up your blog (main site) if you are planning to participate in this reading challenge. If you have an introductory post planned saying that you are going to participate in this reading challenge, link up the specific post to Mr. Linky below. I will leave this Mr. Linky open through January 9th so continue to spread the word about this reading challenge and we'll see how many people we can get to participate with us!
2. THEN, on Friday, January 30th, I'll put up a new Mr. Linky. At the conclusion of this month you are welcome to link up all of the posts you have written about Lucy Maud Montgomery or any of her works during the entire month of January to that post. If you get a chance to watch the movie and want to write up a review of that - feel free to do so.
The entire point of this challenge is to, well, have fun. The second point is to learn more about Montgomery and her work because I think it is valid and relevant even for today. Plus I just think it gets the reading year started off on the right foot!
Have fun, link up your blogs and start reading and learning more about Montgomery. If you are participating, leave a link and I and others will come find you! Then I'll see you again at the end of the month to see what everyone accomplished.
