Welcome to all the new people stopping by to see where reading is taking us, but don't just stop by, drop a line, and let us know where reading is taking you. It's more fun when everyone plays. So much fun stuff going on the the book blogging world, or Bblofia as Aaron's friend has labelled it. Dewey's Weekly Geeks is pushing people out of their comfort zone of just reading books and writing reviews, and new challenges are popping up all over the place - some new ones and some old favorites. After one year, I am already calling these challenges old favorites - Southern Reading and Nonfiction Five in particular.
Reading is taking me mostly to Africa this week. I am in Libya and I'm not sure what is going on in this country of men, but it won't be good for the women I'm guessing. And there are 28 stories of AIDS in Africa which is depressing but uplifting at the same time. This African Reading Challenge is taking my attention right now.
Where is reading taking you today?
