ARC Challenge 2009

December 17, 2008 - December 31, 2009

For those readers whose shelves are overflowing with unread ARCs, you will be thrilled (as I was) to learn that Teddy from So Many Precious Books, So Little Time is once again hosting the ARC Challenge for 2009. And you don't have to wait until January 1st...the challenge starts NOW!

Here are the rules:
  1. List all of the ARC's that you have to read right now.
  2. Throughout the year, you must continue updating that list as you receive more ARC's. (This is important). You should also strike out the ones that you finish.
  3. You don't have to make a list of which ARC's you plan to read, but you can if you want.
  4. Crossovers with other challenges are allowed.
  5. Audio-books are allowed as long as they are ARC's.
  6. Read the books and review them on your blog. If you don't have a blog, you can post your review on sites like Powells, Amazon, Barnes and Noble, etc. Leave a comment on the post about the challenge with a link to each of your reviews.
  7. How many do you have to read?
  • (a) All of us who have or will have more than 12 ARC's must read and review 12.
  • (b) All of us who have or will have less than 12 ARC's must read all of the ARC's we have.
  • Note, that if you have 11 ARC's and then receive a 12th one you will be bumped up to catagory (a).
Teddy will be posting updates to the challenge over the course of the year, so you may want to subscribe to her blog.
