National Just Read More Novels Month

NaJuReMoNoMo books

NaJuReMoNoMo encourages people all over the world to take some time and curl up with a good book.

The guidelines are:

  1. Must Be A Novel. Works of fiction only, please. Memoirs, non-fiction, how-to books, and Garfield collections don't count.
  2. Memoirs Aren't Novels. No matter how made up the story, anything ostensibly true isn't a novel. Also known as The James Frey Rule.
  3. Start and Finish in January. I guess if you got some cool books for Christmas, Hanukkah or some other gift-giving event and jumped the gun, you can't be blamed. But I only count books I start and finish within the 31 day window.
  4. Re-reading Doesn't Count. Try something new. Read something by your favorite author or try an entirely new author or tackle that novel you have always wanted to read.
  5. Have Fun. Nobody is grading you or paying you or judging you. Read what you like and like what you read.
There are cute little badges that you can earn depending on how many books you read during the month of January. This will be my first year in joining this challenge...I really enjoy the "no pressure" aspect of it - LOL!!

  1. Naked in Death by J.D. Robb - 1/3/10
