2011 ARC Reading Challenge

This was one of my favorite challenges last year and so of course I am again participating this year. The 2011 ARC Reading Challenges is hosted by Teddy Rose at So Many Precious Books, So Little Time.

Here is one change for the 2011 edition: No more wall of shame! You don't have to list all of the ARC's you have, just the one's you complete (it was a little stressful!). But I may still list them for my own tracking purposes.

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

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: (abridged version - visit host blog for all the rules)

Crossovers with other challenges are allowed as long as they are ARC's

Read the books and post the reviews on your blog. Check back monthly to the host blog as there will be a monthly post to link up your reviews.
Last year I reached the Gold level, but I think I'm going to start out going for the Silver Level and see what happens.

  1. I'm glad to see I'm not the only one with ARCs left over from 2010! I also have Blood and Silk on my list. I may have to do this challenge again this year too!

    Happy New Year, Heather!
