The key is to read and review books with a postal theme. These can be non-fiction on the subject of letter writing, collections of real letters, or epistolary fiction of any era. Be creative! Review each one and link back to the challenge -- there will be quarterly roundup posts for you to link reviews and posts to as you create them. The challenge runs from January 1st, 2014 to December 31st, 2014. You can sign up ANY TIME throughout the year. Any books chosen can overlap with any other challenge, and rereads are allowed. Just remember to review them somewhere online in order for them to count toward the challenge. Lists don't have to be made in advance, though feel free to share your choices and inspire other readers if you wish! I always think that making lists is half the fun :)I don't have a list of books for this yet, though I do agree about list making being half the fun. I will probably look for at least one collection of letters and may read The Postman Always Rings Twice which I heard a piece about on the radio a while back and was intrigued by.
