Announcing The LOST Books Perpetual Challenge

LOST Books Button

Now that LOST is over, we have more time than ever to reflect on what it all meant! Therefore, Heather and I are pleased to announce that we'll be keeping the LOST Books Challenge Blog and we're introducing the perpetual challenge.

LOST was a literary show. The writers and creators based so much of the show on the history of great stories as told through books. They named their characters and episodes after literary giants. They seamlessly wove books into many scenes and left us all to ponder what it all meant.

And while the show is over, the speculation around LOST lives. There's still so much to think about and many theories that can be formed...therefore we still find value in reading the many books mentioned on LOST.

Here are the details of the challenge:

1)This is a perpetual challenge--which means there's no end in sight! You have plenty of time to read the books mentioned on LOST. It starts for you the moment you sign up!

2) You can choose books from the LOSTpedia Book List, the LOST book club on ABC, or the LOST books list on DarkUFO. Feel free to look in other places as well!

3) Sign the Mister Linky below with your blog url if you have one, if not with just your name or twitter handle. You can follow us on Twitter at @LOSTreading. Please also consider posting about the challenge on your blog so that others can learn about it!

4) Email to be added as a contributor to this blog. You can post your reviews in their entirety here on this blog or a snippet with a link back to your blog.

5) You can also post other items and notes of interest to LOST fans.

6) Have fun! There's no end date so this should be a fun way to revisit our favorite show again and again!


  1. I love LOST and I can't believe it's really over but I look forward to reading the books featured on the show! Thanks for hosting the perpetual challenge - glad to be participating!

  2. No Mr. Linky but I have a post on my blog somewhere.....

  3. I didn't finish the regular challenge. I would love to participate in the perpetual challenge. I'm glad you guys are keeping this going.

  4. Added the link to my LOST challenge homepage.

  5. Hi, everyone! I was very happy to stumble across this challenge! I hope people are still active in posting reviews? Looking forward to reading them.

  6. Hi Darlene - it's been pretty quiet around here since LOST went off the air, but who knows, we may post again at some point ...

  7. Maybe people will be inspired by the one-year anniversary since the finale?

    When I went to follow the links to the booklists, there wasn't much there. Did anyone compile a complete booklist?

  8. I am addicted to LOST! I admit it. My daughter and I watch ALL the episodes this summer and we were hooked. How great to have a reading challenge (my other favorite thing to do) about the books mentioned on LOST. Great idea!

  9. Loved Lost! I have been working on this list for a while now, but not very hard I have to admit! Made a new reading blog and found this so thought I'd sign up to make myself try harder.
