Book Blogger Scavenger Hunt

Monthly Event starting on January 11, 2011

Reading With Tequila is hosting a Book Blogger Scavenger Hunt.  She writes:

The Book Blogger Scavenger Hunt is Reading with Tequila's year long contest for 2011. This contest will be based on the 2010 Book Blogger Recommendation List. The list was compiled from the data acquired through a survey of 54 book bloggers favorite books in November of 2010.

Each month I will post the name and description of a book that was recommended by only one book blogger during that survey. Throughout the month, participants will leave links in the comments section of that post of reviews they've found of that month's book. It can be your own review, it can be a friend's review, or it can be a review you found through Googling (as long as it's posted on a book blog). You'll be learning more about the book, finding new to you bloggers and gaining points towards the grand prize!

Another way to gain points is to visit and comment on the links others have left. After you visit and comment, come back to that month's contest post and leave me a comment telling me which links you've visited. Once the next month's book is posted, the previous month's post is closed to new comments.

Review links: 5 points
Comments: 1 point

A review can only be posted once, so if someone posts the same review link before you, only they get the points. Even if they linked to your review. Participants will only get a point for one comment left on each review.

The person with the highest total points at the end of 2011 will get a $40 credit to the Book Depository. Chose as many books as you want, totaling $40 or less and I'll order them for you. The person with the 2nd highest total points will receive 3 books of their choosing from the Prize Bin (which will be updated many times between now and then).

Some Rules:
We want to find new bloggers, not harass them with spam. Please try to leave meaningful comments about their review. "I was here" or anything else that you wouldn't want to receive as a comment should not be left.

This contest is international and anyone, book blogger or not, is welcome to join. You do not have to be participating in the 2011 Book Blogger Recommendation Challenge to play.

The first Book Blogger Scavenger Hunt post will be up January 11, 2011. Hope to see you there.
