The Blogging Authors Reading Project

January 13 - December 31, 2010

Florinda at The 3 R's Blog is hosting her first reading project. The Blogging Authors Reading Project encourages participants to read books by authors whose blogs you also read. Here are the guidelines:
  • Go through your blog subscriptions, feed reader, or bookmarks, and note which of the blogs you read regularly are written by published authors.
  • Check your TBR collection and/or wish list to see if you have unread books by any of those authors.
  • Commit to reading a certain percentage (not number) of those books by December 31, 2010.
  • Your reading list should be based on the author blogs you read and books you have at the time you sign up for the challenge, with one exception (see below*). You may find new author blogs during the year - I'm sure I will. The authors whose blogs you read may publish new books during 2010 - I know at least a couple of my own blogging authors have books coming out this year. While you're more than welcome to read those blogs and books, they will not count toward your challenge commitment - otherwise, you'd have to revise that throughout the year. (I had to draw a line for myself, so it will apply to other participants too!)
  • Crossover with other challenges is allowed and encouraged!
**The one exception to the "books on hand" rule is this: the rockin'-in-every-way Susan Helene Gottfried has offered a free e-book of her latest Demo Tapes to participants in the Blogging Authors Reading Project. To learn how to get yours, visit the post about the project.
