Welcome to the 2011 Read 52 Books in 52 Week Challenge
(also the new home for Mind Voyages participants)
>The rules are very simple and the goal is to read one book (at least) a week for 52 weeks.
- The challenge will run from January 1, 2011 through December 31, 2011.
- Our book weeks will begin on Sunday.
- Participants may join at any time.
- All books are acceptable except children books.**
- All forms of books are acceptable including e-books, audio books, etc.
- Re-reads are acceptable as long as they are read after January 1, 2011.
- Books may overlap other challenges.
- Create an entry post linking to this blog.
- Come back and sign up with Mr. Linky in the "I'm participating post" below this post.
- You don't have a blog to participate. Post your weekly book in the comments section of each weekly post.
- Mr. Linky will be added to the bottom of the weekly post for you to link to reviews of your most current reads.
**in reference to children books. If it is a child whose reading it and involved in the challenge, then that's okay. If an adult is doing read aloud with kids, the book should be geared for the 9 - 12 age group and above and over 100 pages. If adult reading for own enjoyment, then a good rule of thumb to go by "is there some complexity to the story or is it too simple?" If it's too simple, then doesn't count.
Hi, Robin! Just dropping in to say thanks for visiting. I ought to join you in this, but I'm so overloaded right now, I can't think of taking on any more responsibility. (I really ought to focus on the two I want to publish this year, huh?)ReplyDelete
@susan - good luck with your new wipsReplyDelete
@lee - yeah - glad you decided to join in.
Thanks again for the work you are doing on for all of us on your blog! Would you mind listing the instructions on copying this year's blog button to our blogs and how to link our blog posts to our own buttons? I'm not very savvy when it comes to dressing up my blog & I would really appreciate it. Thanks.ReplyDelete

I don't have a blog, but I've read three books this year so far. If I can stick to that, I'll be doing a book a week. Thanks for the challenge!ReplyDelete

Delighted to have an 'excuse' to read: I am telling my sons that it is my 'home work' -- and just as they are participating in the 'Idita Read' contest, I am doing this:>
For this week, I am reading 'A Grief Observed' by C.S. Lewis, 'A Mathematician's Lament' and, on the lighter side, 'Game of Thrones' by George Martin.
