Around the World

Around the World book club’s January Challenge

To get ready for the movie awards, with the Shelfari.com club‘s help (each member selected 2 books that they read in 2015 that they thought was the Best), I’ve created a book awards and categories. ALL are welcome to join in on this challenge.

Around the World Book Awards

Rules:

  • January’s Challenge starts January 1st and ends Jan 31st.
  • Books must be over 100 pages long.
    But most of all… The amount of books read is up to you..
  • Don’t want to make you feel pressured in doing all the categories, so pick and choose your amount (or all). Up to you. Have fun.
  • Book must be used for 1 (one) individual category, no sharing in order to cross off more than 1 category.
  • Books read before this month don’t count (unless you’ve only read less than 25% of the book).
  • Books finished on the First of the month do not count, unless you also started reading it on the First or you have read OVER 100 pages on the First of the month.
  • (Link this page so others can find the challenge if you’d like to join too, but are not in the club. ALL are welcome to do this challenge.)
