Made it to 33!

Here is a link to my 42 Challenge page. It's been great fun and I'm probably going to sign up for 2011.

Wrapping Up 2010

I know this is a little late, but I just wrote my wrap-up for the 2010 edition of the Challenge; it's posted on my blog here. Didn't quite make it to 42 events/experiences this year, but I definitely enjoyed trying. Thanks, Becky, for hosting this - it's been one of my favorites of all the many (too many) reading challenges I've been involved in.

Starman Jones ~Robert A. Heinlein

My 34th event for the 42 Challenge 2010 was reading Robert A. Heinlein's novel, Starman Jones. It was a fun, page-turner that is well worth reading. My review can be found by clicking here.

Want to 42 Again? Again?

42 Challenge (for 2011)
Officially starts January 1, 2011
Officially ends December 3, 2011

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 or third year, and you'd like to continue on, then leave a comment to 'renew' your participation.
If this is your first year participating, it would be helpful (see below) if you could say this is your first year.
MY goal is to (eventually) 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.
