ARC Reading Challenge 2011

This was another challenge I did last year and enjoyed. I went for the Bronze level and made the Gold Level. I am once again going for the Bronze level and will move up as I read. This is hosted by Teddy Rose at So Many Books, So Little Time. Read below for what Teddy has to say about her challenge!

"I hope all of you ARC Readers will join me again in 2011 for the ARC Reading Challenge. I welcome old and new participants. I don't know about you, but my ARC pile is way too big. That is why I am making one big change to this challenge. For 2011 you don't have to list all of the ARCs that you have. That's right, no more "wall of shame." LOL! Although you can list them if you want to.

Note: I use the term "ARC" loosely,any book a publisher or author gives you with the expectation that you review it, counts for this challenge.

The Levels

Level Bronze: .a. All of us who have or will have less than 12 ARCS must read all of the ARCS we have. Note, that if you have 11 ARC's and then receive a 12th one you will be bumped up to catagory b.

b. All of us who have or will have 12 or more than 12 ARCS must read and review at least 12.

Level Silver: Read 24 ARCS

Level Gold: Read 25 ARCS

Level Platinum: Read 30 or more ARCS

  1. I read way too many ARCs last year...about 80. I am tracking these in 2011, but no formal challenge. Enjoy!

  2. This sounds like one with a good purpose -- clearing shelves and fulfilling commitments, lol.

    Hope you enjoy it Beth :)

  3. I would love to join this I just don't get enough ARCs. Have fun with this one though.


I love comments so please feel free to leave them!
