CHALLENGE: Random Reader Challenge 2012

Lindsay (of Random House) posted about this new challenge to her blog:

The premise behind the challenge is that RHC will be hosting reading challenges over the year. The first challenge is to read one of the following Historical Fiction books:

The Winter Palace by Eva Stachniak
The Virgin Cure by Ami McKay
The Paris Wife by Paula McLain
Midwife of Venice by Roberta Rich
The Salt Road by Jane Johnson
Madame Tussaud by Michelle Moran
Anything in the Outlander or Lord John series by Diana Gabaldon

You’ll have until February 29th to read the books listed above. Once you’ve finished the book, go to the Random House Blog Challenge Post and submit the link to your review and you could win a really great prize that you can read about here!

That's a great list of books! I've seen nothing but raves about Madame Tussaud, The Virgin Cure, and The Paris Wife. Remember also, that there is Venice in February, which makes the Midwife of Venice look intriguing. I'm not sure what book I'll read, but there are lots of options.

I like the idea of reading just one book, but having two months to read it. I also like the list of books to pick from. What a great idea for a challenge! I can't wait to see what the next Random Reader Challenge will be.
