Beth Revers | 52 comments My Vampire Book Obsession September Challenge
swiped from Lynne (please don't prosecute!)
Starts: September 1
Ends: September 30
Ten books each month is a lot, so there will be 5 different levels. So pick which level you want to do and that's how many items you will need to check off.

Levels:
Transitional - 2 books
Fledgling - 4 books
Vampire - 6 books
Master - 8 books
Vampire King or Queen - 10 books

Each month we will have a "check list" of 10 items. To check something off, all you have to do is read a book that applies to that item. So if the item is "read a book with vampires" - then once you've read a book with vampires, you can check it off.
