42 Challenge (for 2010)Officially starts January 1, 2010Officially ends December 3, 2010Your 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.
This challenge was a lot of fun! I read some books that I hadn’t read in ages and I read some books that I hadn’t heard of or had the opportunity to read before. If only for those reasons, this challenge was worth it even though I didn’t manage to complete it. I was 26 books short, but that was probably because I read waaaay too many fantasy books after signing up for the challenge. O_o

I’m starting to choose my 2011 challenges and even though I didn’t finish this one, I did finish several others which is pretty good considering I didn’t start until September. I’m not sure how many challenges I’ll be choosing for 2011, but I know for certain that I’ll be doing this challenge again and definitely finishing it!
