There is only one level, read 7 books.
But there's a catch.
Each book must fit a category.
- Only one category per book.
- Any genre, format, age group (picture books count!)
- Feel free to use creative interpretation of the categories.
- There will be a progress page so you can link up reviews, or at least tell everyone how you're doing.
If you don’t have a blog, you could link to your Goodreads shelf/reviews, or simply comment on this page as you go.
