Reminder: TBR Challenge For June

For those of you participating in the 2013 TBR Challenge, this is a reminder that your "commentary" is due on Wednesday, June 19.

The theme this month is Lovely RITA.  Reading a past winner or past nominee of RWA's RITA Award.  Past winners can be found on the RWA website.  Past nominees?  I haven't found a good source outside of Googling (example: "rita nominees 2007).  Or, you know, you can always go with one of this year's nominees.  However remember, the themes are totally and completely optional.  Maybe there's nothing in your TBR that fits, or maybe you think awards are the devil's playground.  Hey, that's totally cool! The themes aren't important - it's the act of reading something, anything!, that has been lying neglected in your TBR pile.

Hey, we're halfway through the year, which means halfway through the challenge!  Details and more information can be found here.  You'll also find a list of the current participants, should you wish to follow along.

Aren't they all on the RWA website anymore? Huh.

I went and looked and no, they're not. You can probably click on "contact us" or whatever they call it on there and ask. Weird that it's not there anymore. There are lots of things about the new website design that bug me....

Interesting to see all those photos of women. Do you know if a man has ever been nominated?

Phyllis: Just past winners are listed on the RWA web site. They only keep the nominees list up for the most recent year. I think most folks will have enough to choose from off the "winners" lists (and this year's nominees) - but wanted to give folks options.

Willaful: Off the top of my head? I know Tori Carrington has been nominated in the past - and they're a husband/wife writing team. But didn't find an actual list posted anywhere online....
