Fourth Annual NaJuReMoNoMo


It's hard to believe that it is now the Fourth Annual National Just Read More Novels Month, or NaJuReMoNoMo as I prefer to call it (just not aloud, because it nearly unpronounceable). This is my lower threshold alternative to National Novel Writing Month which requires an awful lot of writing and not everybody can write. But if you are here, you can read. The rules are really, really simple. All you have to do is read a novel in the month of January. Since there always people that want to know the full legalities, here are this year's version of the fine print:
  1. Only Novels Count. This means no non-fiction books, memoirs, short stories, essay collections, or books based on internet memes like LOLcats. The judge is out on graphic novels. It's your call.
  2. Memoirs Don’t Count. Even if they are fictional. And especially if they are fake memoirs about the Holocaust.
  3. It Can’t Be A Novel You Have Already Read. Expand your horizons. Try some new authors.
  4. You Must Start At The Beginning. If the book is on your nightstand, you have to start over. We are looking at January 1 to January 31. That is 31 days. We are on a deadline.
  5. Have Fun. This a lark. You wouldn't be reading if you didn't enjoy it.
And of course we have our valuable prizes. You get to brag about your literacy ability by posting our "Winner" badges on your site. Any book qualifies for the Blue Winner badge. Now a lot of people read more than one. Three books qualifies for the Green Badge. Five gets the Silver Badge and ten is the Gold level.



Just right click and download or visit the official Photobucket site. And you can mix and match for anything in between. Last year's top reader was 13.

Once you've read your book, just leave a comment if you want to be included to the wrap-up party. And have a great NaJuReMoNoMo.
