September 1, 2011 – time for another reading challenge!
The rules are simple. Read a book that fulfills each of the ten tasks in the challenge. You have from September 1 until December 31 to finish all the tasks. If you complete the challenge you will receive…satisfaction that you have completed the challenge. And maybe some sort of an award or prize, but don’t hold your breath. It’s EASY. (Well, it sounds easy.) If you want a harder challenge, check out the Goodreads Seasonal Reading Challenge Group, which is where I stole the idea and many of the tasks. Those people are insane readers!
For easy reference, the Reading Challenge is also posted as its own page – see the tab at the top of the blog.
