Try Something New: A Mini Challenge


As part of the Dewey’s Books Challenge, hosted by Chris and Robin in Dewey’s memory, I’m going to take part in the Try Something New Mini-Challenge.

Here’s how it works:

During the month of March, I’m going to step out of my comfort zone and try something new.

To make things more fun, the Mini-Challenge is going to work in pairs:  If you’re an even number, you’ll be paired with the person before you; if you’re an odd number, with the person after you , like we sometimes did for Weekly Geeks.

I’d like to try a graphic novel, or a western, as I’ve never read either before, but I won’t commit until I’ve found out who my partner is, and which sort of books they’d like to try, as it would be nice if we could try something new together!

    Thank you for joining, Jackie. I love graphic novels, but I’ve never read a western either. I hope you and your partner have fun!

    Hi Jackie,

    Yeay! I’m your partner; thanks for commenting on my blog so I knew; I’d just checked nymeth’s page and no one had signed yet. This will be fun.

    I’ve read a couple of graphic novels — and only read them because of Dewey! I never would have discovered them if not for her enthusiasm!

    I’ll send you an email.

    I saw this challenge and thought it was a great one. Unfortunately I wasn’t sure that I would have the time to experiment in March. I am anxious to hear how your like your new reading experience.

    I also wanted you to know that I gave your blog a shout out today and an award.

    What an awesome idea! It is always good to step outside your comfort zone. I can’t wait to hear about it!
