P.G. Wodehouse Reading Challenge

I am setting myself to the challenge of reading as much P.G. Wodehouse as I can.  I hope to focus on the Blandings Castle series in 2011 and the Jeeves series in 2012.  And, if I'm still willing to read more, to read some of his other series and works in 2013.  So this challenge is going to be a long one.
I thought others might want to join me.  I'll review on my main book blog The Little Bookworm, but provide a place to link reviews on this blog.  You don't have to follow my reading plan though.  To this end I have some levels in mind.  I plan to start December 1, 2010 through December 31, 2013 so it's going to be a very long challenge.

The Blandings Castle Level: read the entire Blandings Castle series including novels and short stories

The Jeeves and Wooster series: read the entire Jeeves and Wooster series including novels and short stories

Free for all level:  read other Wodehouse stories or novels or any other series.  It's completely up to you 

Link your sign-up posts here if you have one.  If not, just let me know in the comments.


  1. This sounds like a great idea. I've been wanting to read some of the Jeeves/Wooster books, so I think I might join in. It'll probably take me a while to get a post up on my blog, but then I'll come back and sign up.

  2. I'm in and it's all Joy's doing...posting about this interesting challenge on her blog. See, advertising does work!

  3. How fun! I just posted about PGW today. He's a favorite of mine and one of the authors I keep track of on my blog.

    I will make an official post and then come back and sign up.

  4. Shameful to admit, I've not read much of the Blandings Castle Saga, so that's what I intend to remedy.

  5. I'm up for the Blandings Castle as this has been a recent goal of mine, and I just read Something Fresh a couple months ago. =)

  6. Also, my blog is http://movingfloor.com/ I didn't have an option for that link here in the comments. I don't plan to use my blogger account to keep up with this challenge.

  7. I tried to sign up on the linky, but it doesn't seem to be taking it.
