2012 ARC Reading Challenge

Hi, everyone! Time for another 2012 Reading Challenge.

This challenge is being hosted by Jamie at The Eclectic Bookshelf.

Here are the details copied from Jamie's blog:

What qualifies for this challenge?:

1. Actual Advance Reader Copies - this includes from tour sites like ATW Tours.

2. Any book that YOU ARE ASKED by either an author, publisher, publicist, media group, etc. to review.

3. Book Sneeze, Pump Up your Books, Tyndale and S&S Galley Grab ("they send out a monthly list & the first ~100 to get to their site gets the book to review").

What does NOT qualify for this challenge?:

1. Any book that YOU personally asked for a review copy of.

2. Netgalley

The Rules:

- Anyone can join.

- You don't need a blog to participate.

- Non-Bloggers: Post your list of books in the comment section of the monthly wrap-up post on Jamie's blog.

- Audio, eBooks, and bound books count.

- No need to list your books in advance. You may select books as you go. Even if you list them now, you can change the list if needed.

- Create a sign up post and link to the linky below.

- Challenge runs from January 1, 2012 - December 31, 2012.

- Crossover challenges is ok

There are four levels:

- The "Fun Size" ARC Challenge – Read 10 ARC's.
- The Jumbo Size ARC Challenge – Read 20 ARC's.
- The Mega size ARC Challenge – Read 21+ ARC's.
