Information and Signup

*This is a Sticky Post. Scroll Down for newest Entries*

NOTE: This challenge end date has been extended to August 1, 2008.


The challenge is to read 5 books whose titles have a number in them from Jan 1, 2008 to August 1, 2008 This includes written numbers like "one" or "forty." UPDATE: Numbers like 10th or First are fine too.

Need some help picking? See the sidebar.

You can choose up to three that are on lists for other challenges. So two of the choices must not be on any list. You can re-read books but all books must NOT be read until January 1, 2008.

Want to Join?
Comment on THIS post to join. If you want to add your list and/or review your books on this blog, put your email in the comments like this: myname AT yourprovider DOT com and your blog url.
If you just want to post the list/reviews on your blog then just add your blog url.

UPDATE: If you don't want to be a member of this blog but wouldn't mind your review being cross-posted to this blog, email me your review and a link to your blog and i'll post it.

I know there are a lot of great challenges going on starting Jan but remember, they are all just for fun, if you don't finish, you don't finish, no big deal!

Again I hope to have a prize but don't have one yet. However it will for sure be a book with a number in the title.
