2012 Book Blogger Recommendation Challenge
hosted by Reading with Tequila
I love reading other bloggers and their reviews. It is where I get 50% of the books that I have added to my to be read pile. The others come from goodreads, librarything, Barnes and Noble, and anywhere or anyone else that will speak books to me. I haven't participated in any reading challenges except the one on goodreads. Soooo....I am going to attempt a few and this is one of them. I am working towardsLEVEL V.
Level I - Read 5 books from the 2011 Book Blogger Recommendation List
Level II - Read 10 books
Level III - Read 15 books
Level IV - Read 20 books
Level V - Read 20+ books
- Challenge will run January 1, 2012 to December 31, 2012. 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.
