Graphic Novels Challenge

I had thought that I was done joining challenges, but since I will be reading a bunch of graphic novels next year anyway, I might as well join this one too. I found this challenge here. And here are the rules:

  • The challenge starts on January 1st 2010 and ends on December 31st (but we don't mind you starting early.)
  • You don't have to make a list beforehand (but you can, of course! Lists are great because they give ideas to people who aren't sure what to read. And if you do make one, don't feel forced to stick to it!)
  • We simplified the levels of participation: you can be a Beginner (3 Comics or Graphic Novels), Intermediate (3-10) or an Expert (10+). You're more than free to adjust your level of participation after the challenge has begun.
  • There will be mini-challenges! Look for a post with more info on that soon.
  • Overlaps with other challenges are totally fine.
I will definitely be going for the expert level of participation. Graphic novels are easy and quick, and I find them a nice break between longer novels.
