I wasn’t sure whether I was going to do any reading challenges this year. I certainly felt like I wanted a change from the ones I have done for the last few years. With this in mind, I have decided to do the Full House Challenge which is hosted by The Book Date. There are twenty-five categories and I have an idea what I’m going to read for about half of them.
Instructions are as follows:
Challenge will run from Jan 1st to December 31st 2017
Write and publish a post stating your intention to participate. In the post please include the Challenge graphic and a link back to this post. Then link your intention post at the bottom of this post. Make sure it is the actual post and not just a generic link to your blog.
Add your reviews back here on the link in this post. At the end of every three months, there will be a U.S. $12 prize with a book of your choice from the Book Depository or U.S. Amazon voucher, for the entries. There will be a new linky then for the next quarter and so on to the end of December.
Here is the grid with the categories….
