2010 Bibliophilic Books Challenge

And another one! I had promised myself I'd cut back on reading challenges in 2010, but so many creative bloggers keep coming up with challenges I just can't refuse! So here's yet another challenge I'll be signing up for.

The 2010 Bibliophilic Books Challenge runs throughout the coming year, and is being hosted by Lesley of A Life in Books. And it sounds like a really fun challenge. Participants will read a set number of books (fiction or non-) that focus on books or reading - basically, books on books. Now that's one of my favorite genres, and I was just recently thinking that it would make a wonderful reading challenge. So I'm really pleased that Lesley has had the same idea and done something about it - now I don't have to!

To find out more about the challenge, and to sign up, just head on over to the announcement page. The rules are pretty flexible (which I love), and there are three different levels of participation:
  • Bookworm (read three books)
  • Litlover (read six books)
  • Bibliomaniac (read twelve books)
I think I'll play it safe and just sign up for the Bookworm level; but since I really enjoy this subject, I'm hoping to do better than that. And there's no requirement to make a list of books, but I've already got quite a few "books-about-books" tags on my TBR list, and I'm sure I'll be discovering more as the year goes on. And I'll be updating my progress on my challenge blog.


  1. LOL I'm laughing with you, not at you. I swore I wouldn't sign up for any more challenges and saw one today, that I probably won't be able to resist. Good luck!

  2. Thanks for joining, Joy!

    I was surprised too, that no one had done this kind of theme for a challenge before.

    Good luck!

  3. Joy -- I'm glad you are doing this one. I joined too. I am excited about it. Here is my sign up post and list of book.

    I look forward to seeing what books you pick. Happy reading!


Welcome and thanks for leaving me a comment. I love to hear from visitors.

Also, please note that while I appreciate the thought, I don't play the blog awards game. I think you all deserve awards! But you might think about becoming a follower of my blog -- that would really be the best award.
