Challenge: Typically British Reading Challenge


FINISHED!

This challenge paired perfectly with my Battle of the Prizes Challenge -- British Version -- as well as my reading preferences. Which is why I finished it first of all my 2010 challenges.

The challenge was to read "typically British" novels by British authors in 2010.  There are different levels of participation.  Since I typically read typically British novels, I signed up at the "Cream Crackered" level to read eight qualifying novels.

This challenge was a lot of fun and I look forward to participating next year if Book Chick City hosts it again. I hope she does!

Oh no! For the first time since I started participating in Mailbox Monday, no books came into my house last week. Not a one. My mailbox is empty.
