2012 Books Won Challenge

January 1-December 31, 2012

I created this challenge in 2010 to challenge myself and others that have won books, to read and review some of them.  The reason publishing companies supply books for book bloggers to give away is to get word out about the books and create buzz. 

I hope you will join me!  As an extra incentive, you get extra entries for all of my book giveaways if you join this challenge!

The Levels are:

Honorable Mention: Read 1-3 book you won.
Bronze: Read 4-6 books you won.
Silver: Read 7-9 Books you won.
Gold: Read 10 or more books you won.

The Rules:
     1. You must write a review for each book that you read for it to count.  If you do not have a blog you can write your reviews on a place like Amazon, Powell's, Chapters, Goodreads, etc.

     2.Crossovers with other challenges are okay and you can join this challenge anytime throughout the year.


     3. Audiobooks and ebooks count, as long as you won them. 

     4. You can change up levels but cannot go back down a level.  

     5. You don't have to make a list ahead of time for this challenge but you can if you want to.

To sign up, leave a direct link to your blog post about this challenge , using Mr. Linky below.  Please leave a comment as well.

Please subscribe to my blog, as I will be doing a monthly post with MR LinkyPlease add your reviews for each month in MR Linky in the monthly post.  For your Name, please use this format Name: (Your Name, Book Title and Author's Name) for example: (Teddy, Obsessive Reading by Helen Reader).  Please be sure to use the direct link to your review, not just to your blog.  Then please leave a comment. 

Let's have fun!

Great idea for a challenge, Teddy! Thanks for hosting!

Thanks for joining me Darlene! I hope I do better with this challenge than I did the last two years. LOL!

I love this idea!

I accidentally hit enter before I corrected my link name. Could please change it to:
Vicki @ I'd Rather Be At The Beach

Thanks!

Hi Vicki, thanks for joining! There doesn't appear to be a way I can change it, perhaps you could try to enter it again and you'll just be entered twice. Otherwise we have you in the comments. I hope you enjoy it!

I joined! Hopefully I win some books to do this! :)

Smiley, I bet you will win some books! I have quite a few giveaway and there are so many over the entire book blogging community.

Terrific idea - I'm in! Thanks for hosting.

Debbie, thanks for joining!

This challenge is a fun incentive to read the GoodReads FirstReads giveaways I didn't get around to reading yet...then I'll sign up for more!

Susan, welcome to the challenge!

I have such a huge stack of books to be read, many of which I won over time. I'm definitely in!

JHS, thanks for joining the challenge!

I'm in! Thanks for helping me to focus on my good fortune throughout the whole year! Happy New Year!

Hi Gwendolyn, thanks for joining the challenge!

Count me in! This will be extra incentive to enter a ton of giveaways :)

I don't have a blog, but I think I will follow along with this one on a Bronze level. It seems totally inadequate, but I should be able to make that at least.

Tiffany, thanks for joining. I wish you lots of giveaway wins!

Lisa,thanks for joining!

Hi Teddy, I can't seem to link up using Mr. Linky for this challenge or your ARC reading challenge. My link for both challenges is http://booksandneedlepoint.blogspot.com/2012/01/tbr-reading-challenges.html
Please let me know if there was something wrong with the linky and if you need me to come back and "link". Thanks!

Hi, Teddy! Can't seem to add my link, too, so here it is: http://my-book-obsession.blogspot.com/2012/01/2012-books-won-challenge.html
Thanks for hosting again :)

Kristi, Aleksandra, and all, the promlem with Mr. Linky has been resolved. You should be able to use it again.

I will try this challenge this year.

Great Tammy, Welcome!!
