Summer reading challenge: Stieg Larsson

Do you avoid reading challenges because you find a year-long commitment quite daunting? Are you always looking for good summer reads? Look no further!

Welcome to Book After Books’ summer reading challenge!



1) The challenge will run from June, 21st 2011 to September, 21st 2011.

2) Participants are requested to read Stieg Larsson’s Millennium Trilogy, which comprises The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Played with Fire and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets' Nest

3) For each of the three books, participants are requested to answer at least three out of ten questions. I believe that, rather than having participants post reviews of the same books, discussing the same topics will make for interesting and stimulating dialogue!

4) One lucky participant who will have answered at least five questions for each of the three books will win a copy of Stieg Larsson, My Friend by Kurdo Baksi, courtesy of MacLehose Press.

How it works

1) Click here to register. Registration is open until September, 10th 2011.

2) On June 21st, 2011 I will post the list of questions for each of the three books and links for your answers.

Easy!

So, who’s in?!

01. Starlight from Slovenia
02. Doria from the USA
03. SigmaRue from the USA
04. Misha from India
05. Nola from the USA
06. Emma from the UK
07. liveotherwise from the UK

What a great idea! I've read the first two but not the third. I found the first one really hard to get into and nearly gave up but I'm glad I didn't.
I read them quite some time ago, so not sure if I'd know the answers to the questions as I forget books really quickly.

Enjoy! I read all three a couple of months ago and it was great. Will keep following here.

@Lisa: Hello! There are no right or wrong answers... just opinions. Come back to have a look at the questions next week... they might be easier than you think! It'd be great if you joined the challenge!

@Jeane: Why don't you join the challenge anyway? The questions will be on the blog next week. Keep an open mind!

@Starlight and Doria: Welcome and thanks for joining this challenge!
