LGBT challenge: link for January reviews & prize draw

Welcome to the first month of Book After Book's LGBT reading challenge 2011!

This month, courtesy of Duckworth Publishers, ONE of you will have the chance to win a copy of Putting It On - The West End Theatre of Michael Codron by Michael Codron and Alan Strachan.

To participate in the prize draw, all you have to do is:

  1. Read a book - fiction or non-fiction - whose author is LBGT, whose topic is LGBT and/or whose characters (even minor ones) are LGBT
  2. Share your review (or opinion, if it sounds less intimidating!) by clicking here


IMPORTANT! Please note that you need to have signed up for the challenge to be eligible for the prize draw. If you haven't signed up yet, you can do it here (full instructions here). If you can't remember whether you have or haven't signed up, you can check whether your name is listed here.

And now...



  1. Oops, forgot it had to be fiction or non-fiction. I read a poetry volume this month! Hopefully I'll have some time to get a fiction book in before the end of the month. (I know the LGBT challenge is more freeform, but I'm trying to do one a month).

  2. Hi Dorla. Poetry is absolutely fine! I guess I took it for granted, sorry.

  3. Thanks for your comment on my review of Jackie Kay's short stories, you may also want to add her brilliant novel Trumpet to your wish list....

  4. I have just visited to look up her novel... Trumpet sounds like such a good read. Thanks! I am already enjoying this whole chat about books!
