Wer Book Riot noch nicht kennt, sollte das definitiv ändern und dem Blog unbedingt folgen: Book Riot.
Die Read Harder Challenge ist nicht im Sinne eines Wettbewerbs zu sehen, sondern eher als Chance einmal in Sachen Literatur über den eigenen Tellerrand zu sehen und vielleicht auch neues zu entdecken. 24 kleine Aufgaben gibt es zu bewältigen, und ich werde mich diesen nur zu gerne stellen, und auch immer mal wieder unter dem Hashtag #ReadHarder twittern (und natürlich auch über meine Fortschritte berichten).
We like books because they allow us to see the world from a new perspective, and sometimes we all need help even know which perspectives to try out. That’s what this is – a perspective shift – but one for which you’ll only be accountable to yourself. (Book Riot)
Alle Infors zur Challenge gibt es HIER.
