- This challenge will run from Jan 1, 2015 – Dec 31, 2015.
- The challenge is open to anyone! You don’t have to be a blogger, as long as you have a place to post about the challenge. (Your blog, Amazon, Goodreads, Twitter, Facebook, youtube, tumblr, etc.)
- Any book counts. It can be any genre, any length, and as old or new as you want. If you can hold it in your hand and turn the pages yourself, it belongs here. (This includes Advanced Reader Copies.)
- Feel free to list your books in your first post or wait until the end of the year and write them in a wrap-up post. Even if you list them, you can always make changes later.
- Sign-ups will be open until Dec 1, 2015, so feel free to join at any time throughout the year.
- When you sign up in the linky below, put the direct link to your post about joining the 2015 “Real” Book Challenge. (If you don’t have a blog, post about it wherever you plan on making all your challenge posts this year!)
- On the 1st of each month we will post a wrap-up post, on Swoony Boys Podcast and Fiction Fare. Every wrap-up will have a giveaway and place for you to link up your wrap-up posts for the month. Each book that you read in the month will get you one entry in our giveaway for the month. Prizes will vary, and winners will be announced the following month in our newsletter.
- If you miss a wrap-up post + giveaway, you can link up your books the next month. Don’t try to count a book twice, we’ll be watching!
- December will be a wrap-up for the whole year. All the books you read January-November + the ones you’ll link up in December will be entered into a GRAND PRIZE giveaway.
How to Join:
- Write a post about joining the 2015 “Real” Book Challenge on your blog. (If you don’t have a blog, post about it on Facebook, tweet about it via Twitter, or put it some other place of your choosing.)
- In your post, don’t forget to include: the button/banner, link back to our sign-up page, the level you’re aiming at (listed below) and a list of books you’re hoping to read for the challenge. (That last one is optional!)
- Put the challenge button in your sidebar. (there’s a grab link in this post!)
- Link up in the linky below using the link to your post/tweet.
- Join the mailing list for updates! CLICK HERE TO JOIN NOW!
- That’s it! You’re in! Welcome to the challenge, stay tuned for lots of fun! We’re so excited you’re joining us! Good luck!
I'm aiming for Real Book Hoarder, which is 41-50 books! I own a lot of physical books, and go to the library a lot, so I hope it won't be too hard! I can't believe I didn't find this challenge until now!
