What: "The basic idea of this challenge is to read books about GLBT topics and/or by GLBT authors."
When: Year 2011
Why: Because glbt-books is the genre I long to read the most. I'm secretly planning to specialize in queer-literature in my studies, and well, I have read so many books with straight characters and romances, that a book that has gay or queer themes has a value in that only, for me at least.
My Goal: I decided to aim for 15 books.
Reviews: There is a prize drawing and you have to review books to participate in it, so I might review here some of the books I read for this challenge.
Prize: Well, there is the official drawing, and I might participate, but I'd also like to think of something I can give myself if/when I finish this challenge. I'll think of something and update this later.
