British Books Challenge 2012

I found the British Books Challenge for 2011 about a week after the sign up period was over.  I was so bummed to miss out on it because this is right up my alley.  So, I paid more attention this year and am excited that I will indeed be participating for 2012.  The challenge is being hosted by Kirsty at The Overflowing Library.  The point of the challenge is to read at least 12 books in 2012 written by British authors and blog about them; one book and review per month.  The books can be from any genre, new, old, in print or out. 

I'm not certain of all the British books I'll read in 2012.  However, I do know that I will be reading at least one (if not more) book by Roald Dahl to my children.  My older daughter has recently discovered his wonderful storytelling and wants me read her and her sister Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.  I also know for certain that I will be reading Possession by A.S. Byatt because that is one that has been on TBR list for quite some time.  I also want to read Saturday by Ian McEwan.  So there is one-fourth of the titles for the challenge.

I am quite looking forward to this challenge.  If this sounds like fun to anyone else - pop over to The Overflowing Library to sign up.
