Book Blogger Recommendation Challenge

The Book Blogger Recommendation Challenge is hosted by Reading With Tequila. While I didn't do very well with my 2009 challenges, I am determined to that 2010 will be my year! Saw this challenge over at Natilie's Mindful Musings blog and thought it looked interesting enough to join.

Book bloggers are a favorite source of book recommendations. More than any other source, they consistently introduce us to books and authors that impact our lives. Therefore, Tequila has created the Book Blogger Recommendation Challenge. She compiled a list of 234 books recommended by 33 different book bloggers. While I've already read several books on her list, there are still enough listed that I want to read.

The Rules:
Challenge will run January 1, 2010 to December 31, 2010.
Participants can join anytime throughout the challenge.

*Create an intro post, linking back to this post.

*Sign up with the MckLinky. Please link to your challenge
intro post, not your blog home page.

*Chose your own books from the list. You can decide to read books
only on the Top 25 list or from
the entire recommendation list. You
do not have to make a list of books before the challenge begins.

*All forms of books acceptable (audiobooks, eBooks, etc.)

*Rereads do not count towards the completion of the challenge.
The challenge is about discovering books that are new to you.

*You don't need a blog to participate.

*Reviews, while always appreciated, are not mandatory.

The Levels:
Level I - Read 5 books from the 2009
Book Blogger Recommendation List

Level II - Read 10 books
Level III - Read 15 books
Level IV - Read 20 books
Level V - Read 20+ books
I think I'm going to shoot for Level II, as I don't want to overreach again. Wish me luck!


  1. Awesome! I'm participating too! I'll be dropping by from time to time to see what you read for the challenge. Good luck and have fun! :)

  2. Welcome to the challenge! Hope you enjoy all the books you chose!

  3. Natalie - So glad you decided to join, as I don't know that I would have heard of this challenge otherwise! Secretly hoping to hit Level 5, but don't want to be disappointed again this year, so figure I'll aim low. *L*

    Jenniefer - Thank you! Looks like a really fun challenge, and I'm excited to get started! :)

  4. I think this is a cool challenge. There are so many I should sign up for, but I have challenge burnout after this

  5. J.Kaye - You hosted so many different challenges this year, that I'm not surprised that you're burned out! They are addicting though. *L*

  6. What a fun challenge- good luck with it!! :-)
