ARC Reading Challenge 2011

**Challenge ended.**

Dates:
1 January - 31 December 2011
Host: Teddy Rose of So Many Precious Books, So Little Time

Guidelines:
  • Choose a reading level:
    1: Bronze -
    ~ a. Everyone who has or will have fewer than 12 ARCS must read all of the ARCS they have. (Note, that if you have 11 ARCs and then receive a 12th, you will be bumped up to catagory b.)
    ~ b. Everyone who has or will have 12 or more ARCS must read and review at least 12.

    2: Silver - Read 24 ARCs
    3: Gold - Read 25 ARCs
    4: Platinum - Read 30 or more ARCs

  • Lists are not required, but you can make one if you want.
  • If you choose a lower level, you can always change it to a higher level if you like. However, you cannot go from a higher level back down to a lower level.
  • Crossovers with other challenges are allowed
  • Audio-books and ebooks are allowed as long as they are ARCs.
  • Read the books and review them on your blog. If you don't have a blog, you can post your review on sites like Powells, Amazon, Barnes and Noble, etc.
✸ I'm signing up at the Bronze Level (category B), as I want to try to go back and read a few of the ARCs I have from past years.
