1001 Books You Must Read Before You Die Challenge Sign Up: 2012 Edition
The challenge is simple – read some books from the list! If you don’t own the actual book, you can find a simple list online. For the most basic, check out the Listology list. There are spreadsheets outs there that you can look at too that are more complex.
Since this year is an Olympics year, I thought the structure would change…so here are the levels this year!
Got to trials: 5 books from the list
Made the Olympic team: 6-10 books from the list
Bronze medal: 11-15 books from the list
Silver Medal: 16-20 books from the list:
Gold Medal: 21+ books from the list
Challenge runs January 1 2012 – December 31 2012.
You don’t have to make a list beforehand.
You DO need to choose your level at the beginning so you have a chance to win the prize!
You can use any version of the list, not just the current, since they update it every couple years. I figure, once a book is on the list, it is always on the list!
Books that cover other challenges are not only permitted, but encouraged!
**ADDED*** Non bloggers are welcome to participate! Just sign up and leave a comment on this post letting me know what you are going for. At the end, provide a list of what you read this year via shelfari, LibraryThing, goodreads, or just a list of books! But if you review anything on those sites, link to the review post so we can see what you thought!
You do NOT have to review every book you read for this challenge – it is an etra so that the rest of us can see what you thought!
I am going to aim for Made the Olympic team, with the potential of going to the Bronze medal level. You can sign up for the challenge on the photo at the top.
