NaJuReMoNoMo Winner!

I came across this in Gautami Tripathy's blog. Foma came up with the idea for NaJuReMoNoMo, and he has this to say about his idea:

Two years ago I invented a semi-parody of National Novel Writing Month or NaNoWriMo that I called National Just Read More Novels Month or, for not-so-short, the unpronounceable NaJuReMoNoMo. It’s only a semi-parody because I am completely serious about wanting people to read more novels. January is the perfect month for this sort of internet meme. It’s the middle of winter and doesn’t conflict with any major holidays. January is 31 days long, giving people plenty of time to read a book. Folks are flush with cash and gift cards from holiday giving, And they are burnt out from the endless November challenges that require too much work.

Best of all, NaJuReMoNoMo is astoundingly easy. All you have to do is read any novel from start to finish within the month of January. You can read memoirs or non-fiction in January, they just don’t count towards your NaJuReMoNoMo total.

I wanted to read at least 10 books during the holidays in January and actually managed to finish 11, which means I deserve a gold and a blue badge as a winner of NaJuReMoNoMo.
