Teddy from So Many Precious Books So Little Time is taking the plunge in hosting her first challenge, The ARC Challenge. She thought it might be helpful for those of us who seem to have growing piles of ARCs we need to read and review.
The challenge will run from June 21, 2008-September 21, 2008.
1. Make a list of all of the ARC’s that you currently have and/or are on their way to you.
2. If you have:
- 1-3 ARC’s then pick at least one to read and review for this challenge.
- 4-6 ARC’s then pick at least two to read and review for this challenge.
- 7-9 ARC’s then pick at least three to read and review for this challenge.
- 10 or more ARC’s then pick at least 4 to read and review for this challenge.
3. Crossovers with other challenges are allowed.
4. List the books that you plan to read for this challenge (you can change it at any time, as long as the books you change are also ARC's). You can read the books on your list in any order.
5. Read the books and review them on your blog. If you don’t have a blog, you can post your review on sites like Amazon. Leave a comment on the post about the challenge with a link to each of your reviews.
I decided against singling out four books for the challenge but will definitely be pulling from the below list. My goal is to actually read more than just the four required books. This time I am confident I will succeed. The books are currently in no specific order.
