My husband sometimes comes across a graphic novel I might like to read, or occasionally I find one while browsing the shelves at the comic bookstore as I tag along after my husband. I have a TBR pile of graphic novels as a result. The problem is that the graphic novels rarely take precedence over my other reading, and so they sit in their own little pile waiting ever so patiently for their time to come.
I was quite thrilled when I first read that Dewey over at The Hidden Side of a Leaf is hosting the Graphics Novel Challenge. While my challenge participation this next year will be considerably less ambitious (*cough, cough*), I figured this was one I could easily fit in. Besides, I love seeing my husband's face light up when he sees me sharing in his love for a good graphic novel.
The rules are simple:
