3. This challenge can cross-over to your other reading challenges.

4. You do not need a blog to participate! If you are not a blogger, you can post your reviews at Goodreads, Shelfari, or LibraryThing and link them up here.

  1. I would love to do this as I have the first few books in my library, but have not had a chance to read them yet. However, I am not sure how to sign up since I don't have a URL or understand how to get one. I am not afraid of the computer or techy things, but I just don't get it.

    1. Hi, Kelly! Are you a blogger? If so, copy and paste the url of your blog address. If you do not have a blog, you can post your reviews on Goodreads, Shelfari, or Library Thing as indicated in Step #4 above. You would then copy the url for your profile at one of those sites. For example, my url at Goodreads is this: If you don't have profiles at any of those sites, I highly recommend joining Goodreads. It's a great way to track your books, and it's free!

      If you need further help, please let me know!
