There’s Sci-Fi November, and Vintage Sci-Fi January, but for me, the Summer is the time of year that is best for reading Science Fiction. I don’t know why. Do you think I make the rules of when I read certain genres or books? Oh…wait…I do. Or maybe my cat Dresden does? He seems to be Lord and Master of the rest of my life, so it stands to reason that he does. Regardless, from June 20th, the official first day of Summer, to the 21st of September (the day before the Autumnal Equinox), I’m reading as much Sci-Fi as possible. I’ve got a lot of it on my TBR shelves, and I’m inviting all of you to join me.
Since I’d like to make this a legitimate annual reading challenge, below are the levels:
- Red Shirt – 1 to 5 books
- Viper Pilot – 6 to 10 books
- Jedi – 11 to 15 books
- Time Lord – 16 or more books
Any book of at least 100 pages that is classified as Science Fiction, including any Sci-Fi subgenres, qualifies for this challenge. That means audiobooks, physical books, ebooks, library books, free books, other borrowed books, anthologies, and graphic novels are all acceptable options. You may also count any Sci-Fi book that counts towards another reading challenge. On June 20th, I’ll post the link up for your reviews, and it will stay open until September 25th.
