2012 ABC Reading Challenge

With many blogs hosting fabulous challenges for the new year it got me thinking. This year, rather than just participating in challenges, I should host one too! So, me, Cicley from Ciecly Loves Books and April from Book Geek Central after a lot of thinking we came up with...

2012 ABC Reading Challenge
Basically, it's where you read a book that begins with each letter of the alphabet from A-Z. Yes, I realise books starting with X Y or Z will be near to impossible to find but try your best! And if you do manage to hit 26 books, you're just awesome!

You should join definitely join this challenge. It's fun and a great way to discover new authors and books. The challenge will run until January 2013.

Here are some buttons I made!
Make sure you save them on your computer first before posting it on your blog.




How to enter
Create a list on your blog or Goodreads with your list of books. You can create a list of books that you want to read or start a blank list and add the books as you read them. Once you have created your list come back here and add it to the linky below! Make sure that you post it on the same blog/Goodreads that you are going to post your reviews on throughout the year.

UPDATE!
Prize packs are to be won each month. All participants are instantly entered for a chance to win!
We are still in the process of deciding the prize packs ;D

Rules:
You need to be a book blogger or have a GoodReads account.
Any book fictional book released in 2012 will count towards the challenge. MG, Young Adult or Adult.
Make a blog post/Goodreads list on the books you plan on reading and then link back here.
Sign ups end at June 2012


Any questions? Just comment below :D

  4. If anyone is having trouble look for a book to fill for Q, try The Queen Bee of Bridgeton by Leslie DuBois. Still haven't decided if I want to do this challenge or not. I probably will. I can never say no to a challenge.

  5. This will be a challenge, I doubt I will be all that successful but it is worth a try! I am new to the reading challenge world but I love the concept and am going to give a bunch a try.

  11. This sounds like fun! One question - Do we count "The" as "T" or as the following word(ex: is The Iron King "t" or "i")?
