Want to 42 Again?


42 Challenge (for 2010)
Officially starts January 1, 2010
Officially ends December 3, 2010

Your mission--if you choose to accept it--is to read, watch, listen, and (possibly) review 42 sci-fi related items.

What counts? Short stories, novellas, novels, radio show episodes, television show episodes, movies, graphic novels, comic books, audio books, essays about science fiction, biographies about sci-fi authors, etc. Adapted or abridged works are okay as well.

Keep an ongoing list of your 42 either here on this site (just leave your email address in the comments) or on your own site (just leave a link to your list in the comments). Your list doesn't have to include links to your reviews. But it can if you like. Reviews are not required.

If you want to join the challenge, leave a comment on this post.
If you want to be able to contribute to this site, then leave your email address.
If you don't want to contribute, then that's not necessary.
If this will be your second year, and you'd like to continue on, then leave a comment to 'renew' your participation.
MY goal is to add ALL participants to the site's blog roll.
If you would like to be added to the blog roll AND your blog/site isn't linked in your profile, please leave a link to your site.

Hahaha! I hadn't even realized the significance of 42 until looking at the previous comment. (I just read The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy last month.)

Here's a link to my post:

I was hoping you would do this again. I have certainly fallen short, just about to post my 19th item, but it has still been really fun.

Looks like fun and will go perfectly with sci fi experience and my mind voyages challenge. Will post about it before the end of the year.

Mish said...

I don't know if I can make 42 this late in the year, but I'd still like to participate and contribute. My site is http://stageandcanvas.wordpress.com and email is mishalee02atgmail.

Alysha DeShaé said...

I'm quite late signing up (considering that it's the beginning of September), but I'm a fast reader and I love Sci-Fi so I'm hoping to make a good dent into the 42 items if not complete them.

My page for all my current reading challenges (including this one) is here:
http://alyshadeshae.com/reading-challenges/

I'll be adding links to that page to the individual attempts at reviews. :-)
