2012 Book Blogger Recommendation Challenge

2012 Book Blogger Recommendation Challenge

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 towards

The Levels:

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

The Rules:
  • 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.
  • 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.
