“No one expects the Spanish Inquisition! Our chief weapon is surprise, fear and surprise; two chief weapons, fear, surprise, and ruthless efficiency! Er, among our chief weapons are: fear, surprise, ruthless efficiency, and near fanatical devotion to the Pope! Um, I'll come in again...”

Are you willing to kiss all your spare cash goodbye? Are you easily distracted by independent bookshops, big name book stores, and library or used book sales? Are your bookshelves currently a little tight of space?
Joining this group is highly addictive. In a matter of weeks, your TBR list will be longer than you are tall, you will be wondering how the heck you walked into a bookstore for one little book, and walked out with two bags crammed full of new novels you never knew you wanted. Your bookshelves will be bursting at the seams and you wont remember what color the rug was as it will be buried under all the new purchases you have made!
We are not here to hold you back, or pat your hand as you try to be strong and cut back on your purchases. We will be rallying behind you, chanting your name as you enter the bookstore, and we will throw a book-party in your honor when you come back and share all the wonderful new books youve adopted with us!
I would love for you to follow TNBBC on Facebook and Twitter!!! And be sure to check out book reviews and special indie series and spotlights on TheNextBestBookBlog.blogspot.com.

Do you love reading challenges?
Do you live for competition?
Do you have a hard time deciding what you want to read next?
Or do you simply enjoy discussing books with fellow readers?
Each season (Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall) presents a new challenge with a series of reading related tasks. Each task is assigned a point level and then it's up to you to decide which tasks you'll attempt (or if you want to try to finish them all!) and then find and read the books that fit. It’s a fun way to stretch your reading radius and discover new books, authors, and genres. But be careful…it’s addictive! Your to-be-read shelf may never be the same!
Begun by Cynthia in The Next Best Book Club, the SRC has grown through the participation of its members. To find out more about how the Seasonal Reading Challenge works, and how YOU can be a part of it, check out The Seasonal Reading Challenge Explained and Getting Started....more
