Essay Reading Challenge

Essays are not terribly prevalent in my personal library but I have found some wonderful books when searching them out for previous Essay Reading Challenges so I wanted to play along again this year. I'm shooting for 10 essays but I might bump it up to more depending on what I find on my shelves.

Carrie lays out the rules for the challenge:

~ Join anytime, but don’t start reading until January 1, 2010. The challenge ends November 30, 2010.
~ If you read a book of essays, that book can also apply to any other challenges you are working on.
~ Choose a goal of reading 10, 20, or 30 essays, and then write a challenge post, linking back to this post. Feel free to copy and paste the above image into your challenge post.
~ Copy your challenge post’s link into Mr. Linky below.
~ You don’t have to list your essays ahead of time – just have fun reading throughout the year.
~ I will put up a page for the challenge in my left sidebar, and add a Mr. Linky for essay reviews and wrap-up posts as the year goes on.
~ Everyone who completes the challenge and writes at least one review will be eligible for the giveaway prize: A copy of Best American Essays 2010.
~ New for 2010: You can earn extra credit – and an extra entry in the giveaway – by writing an essay of your own and leaving the link at the challenge page.
~ I will put up a wrap-up and giveaway post sometime early in December – that’s why the challenge only runs through November.


  1. Welcome to the challenge! Let me know if you need some essay recommendations. :)

  2. Many institutions limit access to their online information. Making this information available will be an asset to all.
