2012 TBR Pile Reading Challenge

Here’s an opportunity for you to dust off those books just sitting on your shelves– the one’s you’ve been meaning to get to for months. This challenge will help you get to that long list of To Be Read books. Even better, there will be opportunities toWIN PRIZES, share reviews, and participate in mini-challenges all year long. The brainchild of Evie at Bookish, this challenge has 10 fabulous cohosts (we’re thrilled to be one of them!). 

Challenge Guidelines:

 
  1. This challenge will run from Jan. 1, 2012 – Dec. 31, 2012.
  2. As we would like to see quality reviews linked up to our monthly wrap-ups, onlybloggers can enter. Sorry about that!
  3. Any genre, length or format of book counts, as long as it is a book that’s been sitting on your shelf for some time now. Only books released in 2011 and earlier! NO ARCs and 2012 fresh-off-the-press releases allowed!
  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. When you sign up in the linky, put the direct link to your post about joining the 2012 TBR PILE Reading Challenge.
  6. You can move up levels, but no moving down.
  7. Sign-ups will be open until Dec. 15, 2012, so feel free to join at any time throughout the year.
  8. At the end of each month one of the hosts will post a wrap-up. Every wrap-up will have it’s unique theme, a mini-challenge, a giveaway and place for you to link up your reviews from this monthFor each review you link up, you will get one entry in a drawing of one book of choice from Book Depository. It’s open to INTERNATIONALS.
  9. If you miss a wrap-up post + giveaway, you can link up your reviews next month. Do not, however, try to link up one review twice – we will be checking 😉
  10. December is a wrap-up for the whole year. All the book reviews you linked up January-November + the ones you’ll link up in December will be entered into a HUGE giveaway – 12 books, 12 winners, INTERNATIONAL.
