It's been an interesting year so far. I've lost both my Moms. My mother died in January after a long decline. Soon after, my Mother-in-Law went in for bypass surgery. While her heart healed, other issues zapped her strength and she died April 22.

I may have challenge update posts but I don't know when I'll be posting regularly or when I'll get to visit everyone who is working on the challenges I'm hosting.

ARC Challenge


ARC Challenge
2013

hosted at So Many Precious Books, So Little Time

Sign- up here

Any book a publisher or author gives you with the expectation that you review it, counts for this challenge.

I'm going for ... Bronze ... 
I should go for Platinum but hope to read/review 18 ARCs this year.


The Levels:

Level Bronze:
a. All of us who have or will have less than 12 ARCS must read all of the ARCS we have. Note, that if you have 11 ARC's and then receive a 12th one you will be bumped up to category b.
b. All of us who have or will have 12 or more than 12 ARCS must read and review at least 12.

Level Silver: Read 24 ARCS

Level Gold: Read 30 ARCS

Level Platinum: Read 35 or more ARCS

The Rules:
  • To sign up, leave a direct link to your blog post about this challenge. Please leave a comment as well. 
  • You Can join this challenge at anytime throughout the year. 
  • You don't have to make a list of which ARC's you plan to read, but you can 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 and Audio-books and ebooks are allowed as long as they are ARC's. 
  • 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. Please subscribe to my blog, as I will be doing a monthly post with MR Linky. 
  • Please add your reviews for each month in MR Linky in the monthly post. For your Name, please use this format Name: (Your Name, Book Title and Author's Name) for example: (Teddy, Obsessive Reading by Helen Reader). Please be sure to use the direct link to your review, not just to your blog. Then please leave a comment. 
  • HAVE FUN!

I should have a wall of shame posted somewhere, I've got too many on my shelves, too many read but not reviewed and too many started but not finished. (edited to add: I'm starting a sort of wall of shame, see links under header. . . )
