“I am simply a 'book drunkard.' Books have the same irresistible temptation for me that liquor has for its devotee. I cannot withstand them.” L.M. Montgomery

  1. Why does the 20 pt challenge seem the easiest/most enjoyable to me? Probably because I am a classics nerd.

  2. Classics nerds are good! 😀

  3. I am definitely in on this one – haha. About 1/4 of the way through my last part of the 1st challenge!

  4. Sounds like a well rounded experience! I’ll be cheering you on. 🙂

  5. These look harder! But I’m not as much of a classics reader. I’m still going to try it.

    But there were several categories I never thought I’d get too in the last challenge, and I managed to read some books that fit the category. So even though I didn’t (won’t) finish all the categories, I consider it a success. I only missed 2, once I finish my last two books.

  6. I’m going to be giving this one a go. I may struggle on the civil war one but the rest I think I can handle 🙂

  7. Raidergirl – I’m glad the last challenge was successful! And, I’m glad you’re going to join the next one, too 🙂

    Bella – I’m happy you’ll be joining us, too! I can’t wait until November! hehe

  13. Hi Virginie,
    I didn’t do too good on the last challenge, so hoping I can do this one better. I’d love join in on this challenge. I will be searching for my books until November and I’ll be back. Have a great day!

    Just Books

  14. I am going to try to participate. That is because there is very few romance books. lol. Also a lot of the books I will enjoy

  15. I hadn’t heard about the last challenge but I certainly want to join in on this one. It does sound like so much fun! 🙂

  22. Are you hosting another challenge of this nature for March 2010 – June 2010?

  23. Yes, I’m debating whether it should start in March or April. There is a poll here if you wish to vote 🙂

  24. Okay, I earned 80 points this time, but I planned to read a lot of books I wouldn’t have otherwise and that is the real prize. Here are my results:

    Thanks for hosting!
