- Read one book (or more) set in New York City, and post your review.
- All genres are OK - fiction, nonfiction, poetry, prose, graphic novels, audio-books, or even guidebooks. It just has to have New York City as its primary setting.
- No re-reads.
- There will be monthly mini-challenges, and a separate link for posting reviews.
See my original post about the challenge here.
See the challenge announcement/sign-up page here.
