This challenge is being hosted for the fourth year by Adam at Roof Beam Reader. 2012 was my first attempt, in which I failed miserably.

Anyone who posts reviews online (GoodReads, LibraryThing, Amazon, B&N, etc.) can sign up for this challenge. You don’t have to have a book blog. Visit Roof Beam Reader for more info and to sign up.

  1. Good luck this year! I’ll be posting monthly updates/mini-challenges and check-ins, to help folks stay motivated and energized this time around. It’ll be the first time I’ve tried this (I usually do a 6 month check-in), so we’ll see how it goes. Hopefully it helps! Glad you’re back. 🙂

    1. Yes, I saw that about the monthly updates and check-ins. I think that will help a lot, although I subscribed to comments all last year and still didn’t do very well. This year will be better!

Would love to have you comment!
