2012 Science Fiction Reading Challenge

03 Jan

 


What books count as sci-fi?

There’s more to science fiction than aliens and spaceships. The dictionary definition is: fiction dealing principally with the impact of actual or imagined science on society or individuals or having a scientific factor as an essential orienting component. So that includes dystopias, zombie viruses, genetic engineering gone awry, time travel, steampunk, extreme weather, space exploration and, of course, aliens.

Not a book blogger?

That’s OK. As long as you are willing to write some words about the book on a publicly accessible site (eg. Goodreads, personal blog) you can join in. If you’re not sure where you’ll be posting you can sign up with a social network account.

Monthly giveaways!

Yes, each book you read will get you an entry into some great giveaways throughout the year.

Don’t know where to start?

I’ll be choosing a featured book each month as an optional readalong. If you’d like to treat it as a book group, we can arrange discussions too.

Another year of science fiction is upon us.  I’m trying some more of J’s recommendations.  We’ll see how it goes.
