Dewey’s Books Reading Challenge

I was reading My Friend Amy’s blog and learned of a challenge meant as a tribute to Dewey.

There are two options for joining this challenge, all the details can be found at the challenge blog … here’s a snapshot:

There are two ways to join this challenge:

1. Pick one book from each of the 6 years that Dewey has archives of. You can access her archives by clicking on the archive link in the sidebar of her website. It’s a dropdown menu. For instance, you would read one book that she reviewed in 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, and 2008 for a total of six books.

2. The other option is to read 5 books that Dewey reviewed. These can be from any year and I’m guessing that each of us has at least 5 books on our TBR list because of Dewey!

I’m choosing option 2, reading 5 books that Dewey reviewed; I’ll post them here as I read/review them:

  1. The Middle Place by Kelly Corrigan
  2. People of the Book by Geraldine Brooks
  3. The Elegance of the Hedgehog by Muriel Barbery
  4. Free Food for Millionaires by Min Jin Lee
  5. Nation by Terry Pratchett
