From the challenge site:
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.
I would prefer to do all 42 items as books, of course, but I may do some movies as well. More than likely, I’ll read the book and then watch the movie! I did this challenge last year and really enjoyed it even though I didn’t finish it. I got a little too caught up in my fantasy books…
I’m hoping to finish this challenge this year, and considering that I’m starting on time (and have already finished one sci-fi book) I’m sure that I will!
