Theresa  (TSorrels) These Book Reading Challenges are completely voluntary. Participation is NOT required if you aren't interested!

- Challenge # 8 will run from January 1, 2012 to March 31, 2012.

- YOU CHOOSE YOUR OWN BOOKS TO READ. Only trick is that you have to already own the book, be able to get it at the library, or borrow it during those three months. If you don't have any books on your TBR shelf at home or don't have access to a library and still want to participate, then pick up four new books if you wish.

If you want to change your selections at any time, that is fine.

Here are the categories for the book selection process - please note that the Optional Add'l Book categories change with every challenge. The Optional Add'l Book selections are for those individuals who wish for a bigger challenge:

(Definition of Urban Fantasy for this challenge: books with a vampire, werewolf, witch, or fae character or set in a UF world with some other mythical character or skill set)

* 1 Urban Fantasy Title
* 1 Urban Fantasy Title
* 1 Other Fantasy OR Paranormal Romance Title (not strictly UF)
* 1 Other book by an author you've never read before (expanding your horizons!) - any genre

ANY GENRE:
* Optional Add'l Book: Post-Apocalyptic OR Dystopian theme
* Optional Add'l Book: Cover Hunt: Book with red as the primary cover color
* Optional Add'l Book: A Dusty Book on Your TBR-Shelf


You may join the challenge up to the final day of March.

When you've completed a book for the challenge, please come back to this thread and post a NEW comment with something like this:

Exactly! It's such a nice change of pace. Plus, I confess, I like his snarky t-shirts and sarcastic sense of humor. Reminds me a little of Harry Dresden.
