Hina (hinaj) | 2579 comments 2013 RT BOOKLOVERS CONVENTION CHALLENGE


The 2013 RT Booklovers Convention is taking place in Kansas City, MO from May 1st – May 5th 2013. For those of us who can’t attend, the RRRC mods were generous enough to come up with a challenge so we can read our favorite authors and get to read new authors as well. For more information on the RT Convention, go HERE.



Duration: January 1st, 2013 – December 31st, 2013

Since the event is not till May, the list of authors attending is being constantly being updated. This pdf file is just not the only authors attending. The new authors being added are in red/italics. I will try to keep us updated on the authors attending. 2013 RT Authors Attending

UPDATED AUTHORS LIST GO TO: 2013 RT Authors Attending

♥ For male authors: you can use 5 male authors, use male sounding names and/or use initials as their first names.
♥At least 5 of the books should be new to you authors.


♥♥♥Level 3♥♥♥
♥Complete the criteria for Level 2
♥In honor of the pioneers of historical romance that are being honored this year at the convention who helped to put the romance genre on the map in the 1970s and 1980s. Read 10 books by the authors being honored as part of this celebration (there are currently 21).

Dee's Example:

So, say I need a book for Michigan for level 4, and I read a book set in/author from Michigan for Level 2 - i can move that book to Level 4, but I have to read another book that fits the Level 2 criteria before I can continue with my around the US.

♥Re-reads and audiobooks are all ok to be read.
♥The books must have a minimum of 100 pages or at least 30k words in electronic format. The pages can be verified through multiple websites; most common would be Amazon as they are now listing approximate page numbers on many e-books.
