Book 2 Movie 2012 Challenge

Hi, everyone! Time for another 2012 Reading Challenge!!




This is a great idea for a challenge! This is totally different from the other challenges that I am participating in, so I cannot resist :)

This challenge is being hosted by Martina at Martina Bookaholic.

Here are the details copied from Martina's blog:



Book 2 Movie 2012 Challenge

The goal for this challenge is to read a book/watch a movie in each of the 12 categories, which are further down, during the year of 2012 (01.01.2012 – 31.12.2012) + 1 bonus category, if someone can’t find a book in one of the 12 categories.

This means: 12 books + movies in 12 months, as a result 1 book/1 movie per month. (Book can be read/movie can already been watched – but just one of each)

You want to join?:
Then please write me an e-mail to: martina.bookaholic@gmx.net with your book choices with the category #number and your blog address and the name, which I should use in this post.
