The Georgette Heyer Reading Challenge is a perpetual challenge. There is no 'official' start/end date set by the host. (If you want to set your own time limits, you may.) My goal in establishing this challenge is simple: I want to read as many Heyer novels as I can. While Heyer spent some years out of print, each year more and more of her novels are being rereleased for a new generation to enjoy. You may be lucky enough to find Heyer novels at a local used shop or used online. You might find some Heyer novels at your local library. Or you may want to invest in some new copies. Paperbacks are being published by several different companies including Sourcebooks, Inc. and Arrow Books. You can choose to focus on just the Regency romance novels, just the historical novels, or just the mysteries. Whatever you want to read is fine by me.
There are no set number of books you'd be required to read. You might want to read six. You might want to read twelve. You might want to read them all. Or you might just want to read two.
If you'd like to join me in my reading challenge, let me know by leaving a comment. If you'd like the opportunity to share your reviews (optional) with others, I can invite you to join the blog. If this is something that would interest you, just leave your email address in the comments. (So to sum it up, to join the challenge leave a comment. If you want an invite, leave a comment that includes your email address.)
