2009 Holiday Reading Challenge!

Saturday, November 21, 2009

I joined a challenge for the holidays!! It's hosted by Nely at All about {n}.

Challenge Requirements:

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".

Here are the books I'll be reading for this challenge:
  1. The Christmas Sweater by Glenn Beck
  2. The Christmas List by Richard Paul Evans
  3. The Stupidest Angel by Christopher Moore
  4. A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens
Most of these are fairly short too, so this shouldn't be difficult. And how odd that they're all written by men! I usually read books by women authors so this is interesting...
