Historical Fiction Challenge 2010

Looking through friends’ blogs, I’m finding lots of interesting challenges. I found the Historical Fiction Challenge on Jennifer’s blog and I am so excited! Here is what the challenge entails:

To kick off our challenge week for 2010 we are starting with a favourite at Royal Reviews. If you’ve been participating in our Historical Fiction Challenge for the past 2 years then you’ll notice we’ve made some changes. Firstly the challenge will go for the full year as opposed to 3 months that it ran for previously. Then we have different levels for participants. If you’re like me you’ll dive straight into the Obsessed but then I am a bit of a HF fan!

Challenge Guidelines:
1. Anyone can join. You don’t need a blog to participate.
–Non-Bloggers: Include your information in the comment section.

2. There are four levels:

— Curious – Read 3 Historical Fiction novels.

— Fascinated – Read 6 Historical Fiction novels.

— Addicted – Read 12 Historical Fiction novels.

— Obsessed – Read 20 Historical Fiction novels.

3. Any book format counts.

4. You can list your books in advance or just put them in a wrap up post. If you list them, feel free to change them as the mood takes you.

5. Challenge begins January 1st thru December, 2010. Only books started on January 1st count towards this challenge.

6. When you sign up under Mr. Linky, put the direct link to the post about the Historical Fiction Reading Challenge. Include the URL so that other participants can find join in and read your reviews and post.

I’m signing up for the Fascinated level. Historical fiction is my favorite, so it won’t be hard for me to do this.

For any of you out there who participate in a lot of challenges, what do you feel about using one book to meet requirements for more than one challenge? Do you think it’s cheating? I’m just curious, not that I will try to do this…

    Given the fact that I don’t read as many books in a year as all these other people seem to, I have to be able to crossover books or else I could only join one or two challenges. I’m trying to pick and choose carefully so I don’t have too many “required” books.

    BTW, I love your new look. 🙂

      Thanks for letting me know what you think, Michelle. I have a feeling I will cross over some, but I will try not to if I can help it 🙂

      PS- Thanks for the compliment on my blogs’ new look 😀

  2. I really want to read books that I own and need to read. I’m also trying to join challenges that are open, and not too many books required.
