Just a heads up that I'm going dark for several weeks. I may still update posts/challenges but there will be no new content, not even Thursdays.

My Mom died and I'm taking each day as it comes, plus helping my Dad go through her stuff.

Jan 16 update: Mother-in-law, who I call Mom, is in the hospital for bypass surgery

Feb 19 update: MIL is home now :-D and slowly getting better. I'm still helping my Dad with Mom's stuff but since my brother is out of town, I'm spending 4 nights at his house every week for a month. It's MUCH closer to Dad's and they do meals together and hang out.

Mar 8 update: I'm having a blast with my Dad. MIL has gone back to the hospital

Mar 29 update: MIL is home but not doing well.

Apr 9 update: SIL is nurse and has taken time off work to care for MIL who is basically receiving hospice care at home.

I'll see you in May . . . April 23 update: My Mother-in-law, who I call Mom, died yesterday.

Hosting ebook challenge

Reading Challenge

Hosted here at Book Dragon's Lair!

I'm a HUGE fan of ebooks and as Annette wasn't able to do the challenge this year, she let me have it! Thanks Annette, for letting me take over.

There are a couple of hard rules, one just for general courtesy, several guidelines and six levels.

Hard Rules
  • All books counted must be electronic - I don't care if they're kindle, pdf, nook, etc.
  • The ebook in question must have an ISBN or equivalent. If you can buy it or borrow it, it counts - which just means that all those on-line serials I read don't count ;-)

General Courtesy
  • When you sign up in the linky, put the direct link to your post. That way we can find it.

  • You can list your books in advance or as you read them. You can also change your list.
  • Any genre or length of book counts.
  • Anyone can join, you don’t need to be a blogger, just let me know in the comments.
  • Reviews are good but not necessary. Once again, you don't need to be a blogger, there are lots of places to post reviews. Hopefully, they'll link up so we can read them.
  • You may move up a level but not down.
  • Crossovers for other challenges count 
  • Books started before January 1st, 2017 don’t count - unless you start over ;-) 

bit – 1 book
Byte – 10 books
Megabyte – 25 books
Gigabyte – 50 books
Terabyte – 75 books
Petabyte – 100 books
Empty the Cloud - 101+ books
. . . yeah, this look good.

Want to join us?

Thanks for the reading challenge! I am going to try for the terabyte level. I don't have a blog but I keep most of my book records on Goodreads. Thanks for hosting!

Padmajha PJ said...

Though I have plenty of ebooks, I rarely read them.This challenge will help me finish off a few. I am signing up for Byte.

Teri Conrad said...

Quick question: does this mean all the books I read this year have to be e-books? Or are we just counting e-books?

TravellingCari said...

@TEri I think and hope it means we count only ebooks, but can read others outside the challenge.

Thanks for hosting this great challenge. I am definitely game to participate and going to try to accomplish reading 10 (byte) ebooks.

Toady said...

I'm shooting for 50. I utilize my local library's digital copies and am hoping to read more this year from that format. Thank you for hosting.

cornerofmadness said...

Thanks for hosting this. I'll probably be down around byte.

CourtneyReneex3 said...

This shouldn't be hard. I read mostly ebooks lately. :) Good luck, everyone!

Malin said...

This looks like a really fun challenge. I'm signing up for a Terabyte - 75 books.

Detetiv said...

Um, I read about 500+ books acrd to GoodReads so I'm doing Empty The Cloud. XD lol I also have about 110 arc's to still read...

Psssst, if you live in the state of NY try signing up for a New York Public Library card. They have tons of ebooks via overdrive.

Shilpa Garg said...

Kindle books are my absolute favorites. I am hoping to read a lot of them this year!! Thanks for hosting this challenge :)

Michelle Miller said...

I have so many eBooks that go unread! Thanks for hosting!

Alexia561 said...

Thanks for hosting the challenge! I like seeing how many ebooks vs physical books I read each year.

Amy Condon said...

I go nowhere without my Kindle. I am going to start shooting for 25 books. I have read 3 since January. All three are by Angela Pepper.
1. Death of a Dapper Snowman
2. Death of a Crafty Knitter
3. Death of a Batty Genius
Stormy Day is the main character of the series.
I am also going to read books on my TBR list. This is my chance to jump in and conquer my procrastination.
