Speculative Fiction Reading Challenge 2010

Ever hear that old saying "In for a penny, in for a pound"? Well, that's sort of how I feel right now. Seemed to have been sucked into a joining reading challenges vortex of some kind and can't seem to stop! No, really, this is my last one! I swear! *L*

Timeline: 1st Jan 2010~ 31st Dec 2010. Only books started on January 1st count towards this challenge. This challenge is hosted by Book Chick City.


1. Anyone can join. You don't need a blog to participate.

2. There are four levels:

• Inquisitive – Read 3 Speculative Fiction novels.

• Enthusiastic – Read 6 Speculative Fiction novels.

• Addicted – Read 12 Speculative Fiction novels.

• Obsessed – Read 24 Speculative Fiction novels.

3. Any book format counts.

4. You don't have to select your books ahead of time, you can just add them as you go. Also if you do list them upfront then you can change them, nothing is set in stone!

5. The books you choose can crossover into other challenges you have on the go.

6. If you decide to participate in this challenge please use the links set up at Book Chick City with the buttons to post on your sidebar, this way others can find their way back to the main post and join in the fun.

7. If you decide to join this challenge, be sure to create a post telling others and please make sure you add a link back so others can join in.

8. There will be a place for you to link your reviews, but this is optional.
