2010 Reading Challenge Update



Okay, some of you are finding my 2010 Reading Challenge too hard already, so I'll simplify it for all of us by breaking the challenge into three categories.

(1) Read a minimum of 4 "old favorites" this year and be entered to win a $5 Amazon gift certificate on January 15, 2011.

(2) Read a minimum of 8 "old favorites" this year and be entered to win a $10 Amazon gift certificate on January 15, 2011.

(3) Read 12 or more "old favorites" this year and be entered to win a $25 Amazon gift certificate on January 15, 2011.

You don't have to pre-commit to the number of "old favorites" you plan to read this year, but I encourage you to sign up under Mr. Linky at the end of this post, OR leave a comment letting me know you will be taking part in this challenge. And at the end of the year, I will have to be able to find your list of "reads" for this challenge to see how many "old favorites" you read, so I'll know which prize to enter you for, so be sure to post them on your blog or keep track of them somewhere to leave in a comment on my blog next January!

Hi Joyce,

I'd love to take your challenge. What qualifies as an old favorite?

Count me in! Over 2009, I re-read the Harry Potter series, and I'm thinking of doing it again in 2010. If I do, that's 7 old favorites down, and I have a few others I can think of that I'd like to read as well.

Hi Linda,

I'd love to have you join my challenge! Any book you've read at least once before can qualify as an "old favorite". :-)

Wonderful, Debra! One of my goals is to reread all the Harry Potter books back to back at some point. Don't know if I'll fit that in this year or not, but it's definitely something I want to do!

I'll give it a go too!

Yay, Taffy!

Great idea! I go back to old favorites for great quotes all the time. I mark up my books so when people go to borrow them they're a little annoyed with my outlining. (hee hee)

This seems like such an awesome challenge. I re-read books all the time. It is the best way to read.
