The 2009 ARC Reading Challenge

I didn't think I would join any challenges when I first joined the book blogging community but I keep finding ones that fit what I already am planning to read so how can I not join! It will be fun to spend this year reading along with others in this challenge and hearing what they are reading and enjoying! The 2009 ARC Reading Challenge is being hosted by Teddy Rose of So Many Precious Books, So Little Time. Are you interested in joining too? Go to this link to check out the details and join!

So it looks like I'm supposed to list all the ARCs and/or review books I currently have and add to the list as I get more. And since I have more than 12 my goal is to read and review 12 of the books from the list by December 31st 2009!

  2. Anonymous10:05 PM

    Wow, how does everyone get so many ARCs to read in the first place? Have fun!

  3. I'm so glad to see readers with more ARCs to read than me. :) Looks like a good list.

    Thanks again for signing up for the graphic novels challenge!

  4. I'm flattered to make the list! If you need a copy of the GG arc, you can email me directly and I can put you in touch with my publicist:
    Also, if you visit between now and the GG release (1/27) and download our countdown widget onto your website or blog, I will send you a fabulous freebie.
    (Yeah, I'm not above bribes).
    Other galleys I'VE read lately that I *must* plug: "If I Stay," Gayle Forman, and "Pure," Tera Elan McVoy. Happy reading!

  5. Looks like another challenge to add to my growing list of possibilities. I love the ones that are like, "read the books you were going to read anyway." J.Kaye is really good at those, too.
