Rules in short: to read and review books outside our comfort zone, that fall in one of these categories:
Classics are the new black – read a classic novelIt’s a serial thing – you’ve read the first in a series (or even three of them), it’s time to read another!
- Blameless - Gail Carriger
- The Secret of the Orange Cat - Z.K.Slaby and othersLost in translation – time to read a book that was first written in another language and then translated.It’s about time! – read a book that has been sitting on your shelf for at least two years! (and haven’t read it yet!)By the numbers – read a book with a Number in the titleWeird Science! – read a book that features some form of science – and maybe discover an untapped passion.I just love a good Duet – a book written by more than one author.
The Host - Stephenie MeyerNew Guy in Town – read a Debut book written by a new author.Almost Human – read a book from the perspective of an animal – or an alien – or a robot! (at least feature an ‘almost human’)
Chunkster-time! – read a book that is longer 500 pages. (Time to dust off War and Peace)Random Rescue – go to a used book store and RANDOMLY pick a book! (could even be from a grab-bag)Under-Aged Writer – read a book by an author who is not yet 21. Here's a little help.Time for exercise – read a book that is set in or around a sport or exercise activity (like yoga or baseball). This can be fiction or nonfiction!Make-Believe - This category is just for YOU! (and anyone who wants to try it!) Here is your chance to let others know what would get you outside of your Comfort Zone!
- The Cat and the Black Daffodil - Al Toro
This year I like the themes much much more! So tho I like to say that I prefer thinking in the box because it is BIGGER ON THE INSIDE, this time I sign up for: Look at me, outside my comfort zone!: 8-10 categories
"Вън от кутията"
... и извън зоната на комфорта.
Правилата накратко: да поразчупим навиците си и да прочетем книги, попадащи в различни категории от изброените по-горе. Като цяло моята книжна зона на комфорт е доста широчка и доста от темите са ми присърце :) Но ще видим какво ще мисля на края на годината. Записах се за ниво "Виж ме, виж ме, вън от комфортната ми зона!" - 8-10 категории.
