As we wrap up the year, it’s once again a time of reflection. On triumphs and troughs. On goals achieved and on those that got away from us. In this vein, I have to acknowledge those who challenged themselves to read in unexpected ways this year by participating in the Small Fry Safari Kid Lit Readers Challenge.
It was fun, it was feisty and it gave each of us a little thrill when we came across a book that we could manhandle into one of the categories. All in all, a very worthwhile endeavour. If you would like to find out more about the challenge (which is still open until December 31st by the way, and therefore still very much achievable!), or see the entries that were hunted and tracked by those on the safari bus, simply click here.
If you were one of the intrepid travellers who managed to finish the challenge, feel free to grab yourself this awesome button for your blog, wall or trophy cabinet. I will be having mine proudly made into a shelf-sized doona cover. Feel free also, if you know about photoshop (or the old-fashioned method of literal cutting and pasting) to place an image of your own face over mine. To paste it on your blog, simply copy the code in the box below the image and paste it on your blog.

But enough of Small Fry! Small Fry is soooooo 2014! Today I unveil my new, fresh off the boat, just out of the oven reading challenge for 2015. It’s called the….wait for it…..
I’m excited! Aren’t you? Of course you are. This challenge will be a little bit different from the Small Fry Safari in that it will encompass ALL types of literature, not just Kid Lit. If you are up for the challenge and want to find out more, click on the impressively attractive image above and all your questions will be answered. Come on! Join in! It’ll be fun! I’m also going to include some GIVEAWAYS for participants in the challenge in 2015, so share the news around – the more oddness the merrier!
In case you’re wondering, I’m going to attempt the challenge at the Audaciously Odd level. Bet you’re intrigued now, aren’t you? Go on then, click the challenge button and find out more!
Until next time,
