More Book Challenges to Join

Posted by shelburns on January 4, 2009

I said, to myself, that I wasn’t going to join anymore book challenges because I didn’t want to overwhelm myself, but these are just too good and fit in with the books I have and love to read, to pass up.

Becky at Young Readers is hosting the Young Readers Challenge 2009.  Here are the details:

Read 12 children’s books in 2009.  ‘Children’s books’ are defined as anything written to be read (or read aloud) to children 12 and under.  Examples of children’s books are: board books, picture books, early readers, chapter books.  No list is required. If you choose to post one, you can change it as needed. But it isn’t required at all.  Audio books work.  Rereads are acceptable, but try to mix it up old and new if you can.  Overlaps with other challenges are acceptable.  You may consider yourself ‘finished’ with the challenge if/when you complete the twelfth book. (You could finish it January if you’re ambitious. But there is no requirement to read one book per month all year long.) If you want to keep going past twelve books, that’s fine. I won’t stop you!

As a teacher, my first love is children’s books, so joining this one was a “no-brainer.”

Sheri at A Novel Menagerie is hosting the Just For the Love Of It Challenge.  Click on the link for this one; it’s different, so look out!  I just couldn’t turn down my blogging buddy Sheri when she started this one.

Finally, is the TBR Reading Challenge, which has it’s own blog.  This is my chance to get through the ever-growing TBR pile that I have thanks to this blog.

I will be posting lists for these later, so look for more to come concerning all the challenges I will be involved in this year.

    Chica: All you do is post your list… it can be one book, it can be 100 books that you are planning to read between now and April. Then, when you review… just give a “shout back” to the reading challenge and/or put the pic of the badge in there. At the end of April, report on how you did with your list, including hyperlinks to the posts you did (the reviews) and include the logo and a link-back to me. That’s it.

    YEAH!
    YEAH!
    YEAH!

    Did you put your name in Mr. Linky?

    It is so hard to pass up reading! I know I can’t. Good for you, you haven’t subcome to the pressure of skipping over some great books.
