January 1 - December 31, 2010
Amy of My Friend Amy is hosting the Buy One Book and Read It Challenge in 2010. Here's what she says:
Buy One Book and Read It was started when I realized over 50% of Americans had not read a single book in a year. This is the most disturbing news possible to a book lover like myself, so I wanted to encourage an easy fun way to make sure people read a book in a year!
And it's back! With options!
This year there are three levels of participation:
Buy one book and read it before December 31st, 2010.
Buy six books and read them before December 31st, 2010.
Buy 12 books and read them before December 31st, 2010.
To add a little twist to this year's challenge you are encouraged to choose one of the following options to add to your level.
Indie Option--Make sure the book or books you buy are purchased at an independent bookstore.
Book Blogger Option--Buy only books you learn about on book blogs.
To join, go to Buy One Book and Read It Challenge.
