January 1 - December 31, 2014
Bev @ MY READER'S BLOCK
Guidelines (quoted from the challenge announcement page):
- Challenge runs from January 1 to December 31, 2014.
- You may sign up anytime from now until November 30th, 2014.
- Once you choose your challenge level, you are locked in for at least that many books. If you find that you're on a mountain-climbing roll and want to tackle a taller mountain, then you are certainly welcome to upgrade. All books counted for lower mountains may carry over towards the new peak.
- Books must be owned by you prior to January 1, 2014.
- No ARCs (none), no library books.
- No rereads.
- Audiobooks and E-books may count if they are yours and they are one of your primary sources of backlogged books.
- Books may be used to count for other challenges as well.
- Feel free to submit your list in advance (as incentive to really get those books taken care of) or to tally them as you climb.
- There will be quarterly check-ins and prize drawings!
A blog and reviews are not necessary to participate.
- There will be a GoodReads group for the challenge, and a site for reviews.
❋ I'm signing up at the "Pike's Peak" level, so I'll be trying for twelve books.
- Pike's Peak: Read 12 books from your TBR pile/s
