We are joining the November Novella Challenge sponsored by http://www.bibliofreakblog.com/. We have chosen to participate at Level II (4 novellas). Novellas are an overlooked reading option, so selecting the four we want to read is a challenge in itself. Our plan is to each pick two and then read them together. Dave is leaning towards "Animal Farm" by George Orwell and something written by Arthur Conan Doyle. I am eyeing some newer Christmas themed books. We'll put up the final list as soon as we make a decision - or four decisions, as the case may be.
This is a great place to start reading as a couple. You only need to commit to reading one novella to join the challenge - there are prizes! - and meet your goal in one evening. Good date night activity idea.
