CHALLENGE: Foodie's Reading Challenge

    Hosted by Joyfully Retired, the object of this challenge is, of course, to read food books. A food book is classified as a cookbook, a fictional story that has food as a major part of the story, a memoir or bio surrounding food, or any non-fiction book about food preparation or the food industry or diet guide, etc.

    Here’s how it works:

    1. Decide how many food books you want to read in 2011 and choose your level of reading.  Keep in mind this is a challenge – a throw-down. Go a bit beyond what you think you can really do. Levels:
    • Nibbler: 1 to 3 books
    • Bon Vivant: 4 to 6 books
    • Epicurean: 7 to 9 books
    • Gourmet: 10 to 12
    • Glutton: More than 12
    2. Grab the challenge button and write a post on your blog so we can spread the word. No blog? That’s okay. Sign up in the comments section.

    3. As you read each book for the challenge, go back to the foodie challenge blog and let them know.

    • You don’t need a pre-selected list of books.
    • Crossing over with other challenges is fine.
    • Any book format is allowed (print, audio, ebook)

    There will be a prize at the end of each quarter, using
