The Well-Seasoned Reader Challenge

I really tried not to join any challenges for 2009, but Book Nut made this sound so irresistible. Just my cup of tea. Easy, too. Piece of cake, so to speak. I don't think I can fail at this one:

Rule 1# The challenge runs from January 1 - March 31. (No cheating or starting before!)
Rule 2# You must read 3 books. After that, it's up to you how much you want to read.
Rule 3# The books must: Have a food name in the title OR be about cooking/eating OR have a place name in the title OR be about a specific culture OR be by an author whose ethnicity is other than your own.
Rule 4# The books must be middle-grade and on up, but can be either fiction or nonfiction.

This challenge not only screamed my name, it knocked me down and began chewing on my forearm. Now that I've succumbed, it's like dominoes; I'll be tumbling for those other challenges dancing in front of my eyes. Sigh. Stay tuned.

I'm so impressed that my challenge had the power to knock you over and chew on your arm. So glad you gave in. :)

This would be a good one for me. If I did challenges! Will look forward to your reading list.

Sigh ... I promised myself no more challenges too. Then I started reading the Novel Challenge blog ... I may be doomed.

I can't help but wonder why you are reading Fearless Interviewing.

Good luck!
