Worlds Without End Roll-Your-Own Reading Challenge

2014 The Second Best

2014 The Second Best

We get very obsessed sometimes with reading the winners (at least I do). We forget the also-rans. A companion to the 12 awards in 12 months. Read 12 award nominations in 12 months. No award to be duplicated. Each book only counts for 1 award.  Review 6.

For an added twist - the book cannot have won any of the other awards tracked on this website, i.e. it would be ineligible for the 12 in 12 Challenge.
