ARC Reading Challenge 2011

2011 ARC Reading Challenge

Yet another challenge for 2011 and one that I know I can complete, since I always read and review my ARC's (after all, that's why they're sent to us).  This one is being hosted by So Many Precious Books, So Little Time (isn't THAT true?).  Here are some guidelines (click the host link for more):


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 catagory 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 25 ARCS

Level Platinum: Read 30 or more ARCS


Rules:

  • To sign up, leave a direct link to your blog post about this challengePlease leave a comment as well.
  • 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.

Note:  I use the term "ARC" loosely,any book a publisher or author gives you with the expectation that you review it, counts for this challenge.

I take the note to mean that any book supplied by a publisher or author for review counts as an ARC; however, for myself, I will only choose actual ARC's and eGalleys.  You don't have to list them ahead of time, but I will at least list those that are currently waiting for me (with GoodReads links):

Comments make me feel all squishy happy inside, so drop a line if you see or read something interesting! PLEASE don't leave links to your blog or page unless the post you're replying to specifically asks you to leave a link!
Sorry that I had to re-enable word verification, but without it, there was far too much spam coming in - the only other option would have been to require only registered (Google, OpenID, etc.) comments, which might require you, the commenter, to go through even MORE steps just to comment!
