Antonym Reading Challenge 2012

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

Book Obsessed

This looks like a fun challenge for "word-nerds" like me! It is being hosted by Tasha at Book Obsessed.

Here are the details copied from Tasha's blog:

Antonym Reading Challenge 2012:

The goal of this challenge is to read books by matching antonyms in the title. To help you out, here is a link to a couple of web sites to get you started: Opposite Word and Thesaurus.

Your books can be of any genre and any format (ie. paperback, ebook, audiobook, etc.). No short stories. Re-reads and crossovers from other reading challenges are fine. (Re-read reviews must be written within the year 2012; you can not use old reviews.)

You can list your books in advance or list them as you read them. The idea of this challenge came from a Goodreads group.

**Anyone can join. You don't need a blog to participate.

**Non-Bloggers: Sign up in the comments section. Post your reviews with other book sites (ie. Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Goodreads, Shelfari, etc.) and post the link in the comments section of the Antonym Reading Challenge Review Link. (will post January 1).

Hot: Hot Ice by Nora Roberts
Cold: Cold Fire by Dean Koontz
Bonus: Hot Flashes and Cold Cream by Diann Hunt

Mean: Lean Mean Thirteen by Janet Evanovich
Generous: The Generous Wife by Lori Byerly

**the bonus is not required. it's totally up to you if you want to complete a bonus**

Bachelors: 12 – 20 books
Masters: 22 – 30 books
Doctorate: 32+

When you sign up on Mr. Linky, put the direct link to your blog post about this challenge. Include a link to this post, so that your followers can sign up too! You can either list your books on your challenge post, sidebar, or a page dedicated to your challenges.

Feel free to sign the Mister Linky with your name and blog name. (ie. Tasha (Book Obsessed)) or just your blog name (ie.

(You will be able to link your review of the book for others to read and drive traffic to your blog.)

Hmmm, I am not sure which level 11 books fits into? It appears that 11, 21, and 31 books do not fit into the levels! I have asked Tasha about it and will fix the levels when I receive her response.

I am going for DIPLOMA LEVEL (6-10 books).
