Nov 152009


The year has flown by fast and what better way to end it but to do a holiday reading challenge (which will actually be The Book Faery Review’s FIRST book challenge). I know I for one have several holiday books on my shelves that I’ve tried my best all year to refrain from reading since the season was off. Now I no longer have to refrain and I can read to my heart’s content!

All About {n} has started a new 2009 Holiday reading challenge. You can see reviews from others doing the reading challenge HERE.

Here are the challenge details…

1- Challenge will start Friday, November 20 and will end Thursday, December 31.

2- You can read anywhere from 1 to 5 books for the challenge and, of course, if you’re like me, you are more than welcome to surpass that number.

3- And now, here’s the clincher… they must be holiday related books. That’s right, the holiday doesn’t really matter, but it would be more “jolly” if your choices were Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, etc.

4- The size of the book does not matter, nor does the genre. It is also okay for the book to overlap with other challenges. The only thing I ask is that they are not children’s books. YA is okay. And so are re-reads. I for one tend to read the same books every Christmas – they are tradition.

5- To sign up – leave a link back to your challenge post. There will also be a post for review links as well as one for challenge wrap-ups.

6- And…. there will be goodies. That’s right, we’ll call them presents. At the end of every week that the challenge is running I will choose one winner from the review links and I will allow them to pick a book of their choosing (of course, I will provide a list). Meaning the more books you read, review and link up, the more chances you have at winning a “present”.

    Oooh, great selection! I’m reading some of the same, but there are some listed here that I didn’t remember. I might just have to steal and read those too. Thanks for joining the challenge. I’ll be looking forward to your reviews.

    Happy Reading!
