With all new challenges since the beginning of the year, I think it's time to have an old favorite. It's our Serial April Challenge.

Duration: April 1 - April 30, 2012

Goal: Read a book from 10 different series. Be sure to identify what series they belong to, and what number in the order.

Signing up will remain open throughout the whole month.

Happy reading, everyone!

Desperado (LethalLovely) | 453 comments YAY! I haven't participated in as many PNR monthlies in the past few years as I would like to, due to being so busy with work and school. But Serial April was the first challenge I ever participated in when I joined GR back in 2010, so I try to do this one every year. Thanks for bringing it back for another round, Yz. ^_^

I'm trying a few indie books I've got on my Kindle for this challenge, so I don't end up with 10 bestsellers at $12.99 each and have to eat Ramen for the month.

Let the reading begin!
