Fellow Blogger Challenges People to Read Memoirs This Year

Reading other people’s memoirs is a great way to get acquainted with the autobiography genre. Frequently here on our blog, I encourage all of you considering, or already in the process of, writing your memoirs to pick up autobiographies written both recently and long ago. Now another blogger has set forth a challenge to read at least four memoirs in 2010. She writes for her own site, The Betty and Boo Chronicles.

To participate, all you have to do is sign up with the site and list the book(s) you’re reading. You can start by going either to the first link above or click here to access a follow-up entry. The blogger, Melissa, says she purposely set the bar low—four memoirs is not burdensome—so that people could easily join the challenge.

Melissa writes: “I’m so thrilled by all the enthusiasm for The Memorable Memoir Reading Challenge! Thank you all for joining. I had no idea what to expect from my first hosted challenge, and I have to say, this is a lot of fun. I’m adding so many great-sounding memoirs to my want-to-read list and discovering a bunch of new (to me) blogs. Hopefully you’re doing the same and liking what you’re finding here.???
