As in Reading While Drinking, to be alternately known as Reading Under the Influence or Reading Drunk. Whatever your acronymical preference, this is a reading challenge that MartyMankins, KevinSpencer, and I came up with tonight on Twitter and you’re invited to join in the fun!
Considering my 48-book reading goal, I’m’a need some motivation to get it done.
Here’s some back reading for ya...
So, basically, if you’re gonna have a drink at home aside from dinner time with the family, you have to be reading a book. And, to make it interesting, if you don’t hit your self-prescribed reading goal each month, you can’t have another drink until you make up the reading deficit.

Of course, you can read without drinking. Probably best if you’re planning to read during lunch at work. But there is no non-meal drinking without reading.
Anyone want in?
If nothing else, you’ll either be drinking to the point where it won’t matter what you’re reading or you’ll finally achieve that sobriety that has eluded you for so long. What have you got to lose?
