2009: Challenges – 2009 ARC Reading Challenge Updated
Thereâ€™s been a couple of new levels that have been added to the 2009 ARC Reading Challenge, hosted by Teddy Rose. The original guidelines were:
- List all of the ARCâ€™s that you have to read right now.Â Then throughout the year, you must continue updating that list as you receive more ARCâ€™s.Â (This is important). You should also strike out the ones that you finish.
- There are two options:
- All of us who have or will have more than 12 ARCâ€™s must read and review 12.
- All of us who have or will have less than 12 ARCâ€™s must read all of the ARCâ€™s we have.Â Note, that if you have 11 ARCâ€™s and then receive a 12th one you will be bumped up to catagory a.
- You donâ€™t have to make a list of which ARCâ€™s you plan to read, but you can if you want.
- Crossovers with other challenges are allowed and Audio-books are allowed as long as they are ARCâ€™s.
- Read the books and review them on your blog. If you donâ€™t have a blog, you can post your review on sites like Powells, Amazon, Barnes and Noble, etc.
And the new updates!
- Level 2 of the challenge is for those of you who have or will finish 12 books, read another 12 books for a total of 24 books.
- Level 3 of the challenge is for the ARC Obsessed and is over 25 books.
I think I can manage to do Level 3.Â In the next few days I need to 1) update my ARC list with everything I have and 2) make sure all my reviews are linked.
