2010 BBR Challenge


found here

The Levels:
Level I – Read 5 books from the 2009 Book Blogger Recommendation List
Level II – Read 10 books
Level III – Read 15 books
Level IV – Read 20 books
Level V – Read 20+ books

The Rules:

  • Challenge will run January 1, 2010 to December 31, 2010. Participants can join anytime throughout the challenge.
  • Create an intro post, linking back to this post.
  • Sign up with the MckLinky below. Please link to your challenge intro post, not your blog home page.
  • Chose your own books from the list. You can decide to read books only on the Top 25 list or from the entire recommendation list. You do not have to make a list of books before the challenge begins.
  • All forms of books acceptable (audiobooks, eBooks, etc.)
  • Rereads do not count towards the completion of the challenge. The challenge is about discovering books that are new to you.
  • You don’t need a blog to participate.
  • Reviews, while always appreciated, are not mandatory.

I decided to join this Challenge as the List really appealed to me and I already read a few of them (which don’t count on the challenge but nevermind). Also I’m reading one book at the moment that is on that list, so this is a good opportunity. I didn’t decide for a Level yet, I’ll see how far I come.

How I am going to mark the list: read in the past (not counting for the challenge – would reread all of them they all were great!), currently reading, finished reading

So the Challenge is over, but I will still cross of Books if I read them, but write the date to it so you can see that it doesn’t count for the challenge anymore.
