Melwyk has created a rather tempting challenge, the Postal Reading Challenge.
What is the Challenge?
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, 2013 to December 31st, 2013. 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’m tempted to reread the Griffin and Sabine books, which I last read over a decade ago.
Dear exile : the true story of two friends separated (for a year) by an ocean – Hilary Liftin and Kate Montgomery
Heidegger’s glasses : a novel – Thaisa Frank
The house I loved – Tatiana de Rosnay
The Gum Thief – Douglas Coupland
West from home: letters of Laura Ingalls Wilder, San Francisco, 1915 – Laura Ingalls Wilder
Oh, those are great choices! I have Heidegger’s Glasses on my possibles list as well, it looks fascinating. I also read Griffin & Sabine years ago, but haven’t read any of your other picks. Glad to have you aboard for the challenge!
Thanks for hosting the challenge! I’ve enjoyed reading postal-related books over the years but never would think to focus on them! I’m looking forward to these reads.

I have restricted my challenge input, but I plan to have a re-read of 84 Charing Cross real soon and then can join in! A great challenge and some great books lists here.
Thanks, Julie. I hope you re-enjoy 84 Charing Cross Road! 🙂
