I’m going to call this the Monthly Challenge That Could! since I generally am a big fail whale at them, but this one…I have a fighting chance at finishing some real goals for.
The deets: Kimba at Caffeinated Book Reviewer and Kimberly at The Windy Pages are hosting a month-long challenge to help the organizationally-challenged (and the rest of you) to clean up your ARC pile during the month of May. There are going to be mini challenges each Saturday (I’m doing one this Saturday) with prizes and two prizes at the end.
I’m going to be lazy and copy and paste Kimba’s posting of the rules:
- Must be read during May 1st and May 31st, 2013
- Starts and ends at midnight in your local time zone
- Physical, audio and digital ARCs are eligible, in any length and genre! (for this challenge an ARC is any book given for review purposes, regardless of release date.)
- Linky will close on May 15th so sign up before you miss out!
- When you post your sign up post, please include the challenge button or links back to the hosting blogs.
- Challenges will be hosted each Saturday with a change to win additional prize.
- Grand Prize- TWO winners will be chosen to pick a book of their choice from The Book Depository. (Up to $15 value per book)
- Please post your recap by June 3rd. This is the day that the Rafflecopter will close. Recap post should include a link to the review or Goodreads review with date it will be posted on your blog. (This is for readers who may be reading books way ahead of schedule and don’t want to post a review yet!)
- Rafflecopter entries will be awarded for each book review linked, posting about challenge, recap post, participation in challenges, and following.
- Challenge Schedule and Rafflecopter will post on April 30th at 4pm (EST) Rafflecopter will close on June 3 at 11:59 (EST)
If you’d still like to sign up, you can do it HERE.
