Kat, over at BookThingo, is hosting a Books Alive Reading Challenge. The Challenge runs from yesterday until October 1st (when the Books Alive promotion finishes), and there are several different Challenge themes:
All-rounder challenge Read as many books as you can from The Guide (50 Books You Can’t Put Down). If you choose this challenge, at least one book should be the anthology or Grug book that you get free when you buy one of the books on the list. (Booktopia has the entire list in its catalogue.)
Romance challenge Read as many books as you can from the list of 2009 R*BY Award finalists. If you choose this challenge, one of the books must be Dark Country or How To Break Your Own Heart. These books are in The Guide and were written by authors nominated for a R*BY Award this year.
Library challenge Read as many books as you can from your local library.
Or devise a theme of your own!
Kat has a copy of Dark Country that she’ll be giving away as one of the Challenge prizes – for details of how to sign up for the Challenge, and be eligible for prizes, hop on over to her blog – and read some great reviews while you’re there!
I’m signing up to the Challenge. My goal will be to read at least 3 new-to-me authors from the Books Alive Guide before the end of this month. I’m not sure which three yet – there are so many good books to choose from!
