The Rules

This is a project I started when I realized I was reading books by the same authors over and over. I am attempting to read 365 works of fiction, written by 365 authors. To randomize the authors a little, I am basing my choices by author’s birthday. For each day of the year, I will pick author born on that day and read one of their books or short stories.  At the end of this project, I hope to have read a variety of authors from many different genres.

To make things a little more difficult, I live in a non-English speaking country so I have to rely on finding English language books at flea markets, thrift stores, and the tiny sections at the back of the train station bookstores.

I might turn to Project Gutenberg but I much prefer sitting down with a bound collection of dead tree remnants. We will have to see how the book hunting goes.
