First Quarter Reflection

Well, we are a quarter of the way through 2013 and the 2013 Chunkster Reading Challenge. How is everyone doing? Don't forget to link up any reviews for the challenge here.

We just finished our first Chunky Book Club read...and I was happy that we actually had some discussion on the discussion post! Just a reminder that I will keep comments open on that post throughout the year and you can jump in and comment there at any time. I've also included a linky in the post for readers to post their reviews of The Map of Time - so I hope you'll continue add your review links there too.

June marks the discussion for our next Chunky Book Club read. Remember - you do NOT need to join the challenge in order to join the book club ... and any format of book is acceptable for the books we read in the club. We'll be discussing Sea of Poppies by Amitav Ghosh which is a fabulous book (check out my review from 2009). This is the first book in a projected trilogy (the second book, River of Smoke, has already been released - read my review here).

As we head into the second quarter of 2013, I hope you have some wonderful chunksters in your stacks! Please contact us with any questions about the challenge or book club, or to offer suggestions for this site. Happy reading!


  1. I had this on my TBR pile because I loved “The Glass Palace”. Really looking forward to this one.

  2. I have done two so far out of eight, and am halfway through a third. :)

  3. I just finished the challenge. I signed up for plump primer and I just finished reading my sixth book. Congrats to being my first challenge completed of 2013.


  4. I'm not off to a very good start! I'm technically still at zero, though I did just finish one that qualifies, I just need to write up the review first before I can link it!


We love discussion! Please tell us what you think!
